In Joy’s words, “I have put in a lot of blood, sweat & tears over the years. I’ve sacrificed comfortable living for the ability to do my music. Not only does my music make me happy, I know it makes other people happy & I know that I am an inspiration to someone, somewhere who thinks that they can’t do what they want to do. I do my music for me & for you so I wanted to include you in the process. Your donations will guaruntee a few different perks & that proves that I truly am joy – for – the – people. We are in this process TOGETHER. My success is your success!
I believe music is the one thing that unifies us all. Regardless of race, gender, sexual preference or culture. I believe people need good music to function. I believe music saved my life & the lives of others. I believe artists need the same space & opportunity to create as anyone else, but often don’t get it because the funding isn’t there. When our schools cut funding, the first program they cut is the music program. It seems everyone wants the luxury of listening to their music for free, but they don’t realize how much it costs to produce the high quality music the people need/want.
I believe young people need positive examples that aren’t filthy rich. I believe young women need a voice. I believe everyone deserves a second chance. I believe things always get better. I believe music gets us through the storm. I believe there is Joy After The Rain. We’ve all seen the storm & we’ve all rejoiced at the sight of the sun. This is why I’m giving my fans, family & friends the opportunity to tell this story with me.”
