Jade Alston’s First Album “We Will Live”
Indie Philly Singer/Songwriter, Jade Alston, has officially joined Jay-Z’s #NewRules movement in music by launching her own creative fundraising campaign for her 1st album, We Will Live. By teaming with Kickstarter, a fundraising platform for creative projects, Jade has already raised over $2000 in just over a week! But Jade’s mission is bigger than just herself and her music. Since being diagnosed with Myocarditis, a potentially deadly heart condition, Jade Alston has committed herself to being an example of someone who has pursued their dreams despite roadblocks and with no stone unturned. Her goal with this campaign is not only to raise as much as possible, but it is also to inspire.
“The truth is that after covering all the medical bills, I had no budget left to do another independent music release. Instead of quitting, I decided to try something new. Life is too short not to at least TRY for your dreams. Living with this heart condition has taught me that.” The video above shows Jade sharing her story while previewing a new song that will be included on the album. It is quite inspiring and some have said it’s moved them to tears. Check it out, and if you’re compelled, feel free to donate. Every dollar helps. Support the dreamers and support good music…we do!
