This is what Heather says about this forthcoming concert:

My next live appearance will be a concert with the Bermuda Festival on January 29th. This is special event for me because I will be donating my fee to a cause I feel passionate about The Chewstick Foundation.

I wanted to contribute in some way to the healing of our community here in Bermuda, which has been torn apart by gang violence so I decided to do a concert to raise both money and awareness for Chewstick's outreach programs in the schools and prisons. They encourage kids to express themselves through music, poetry and spoken word, thereby giving them a sense of self esteem and empowerment. I truly believe Chewstick's programs have the potential to reach kids in a profound way, and that they can really help heal and intergrate our society - racially and culturally, thereby bringing about positive change. In their own words:

"Through youth programs, artist development projects and community initiatives we are inspiring individuals and cultivating an integrated society. We change lives by inspiring people to live their dream. Our events create opportunities to bring our divided community together and help heal age old wounds by allowing people the opportunity to express and understand each other in an environment of peace. We conduct dynamic youth programs at Berkeley Institute, Bermuda College and at the Co-Ed Facilty (juvenile prison)"

I'll be inviting a few local artists to participate in the evening, to showcase the talent that is on the island and is finding its voice through Chewstick.

Thanks to the Bermuda Festival for supporting this vision!
