NYC- Philly born/Brooklyn based singer/songwriter Candice Anitra has wrapped work on her forthcoming sophomore project ‘Big Tree’ which will see a release on March 28th, 2012 world-wide.
One of the songs off the dance/soul endeavour was inspired by the devastating Earthquake in Haiti. The song “Today” marks 2 years later and addresses mother nature, emotion and our vulnerability.
The song and video invoke a sense of urgency, and viewers are encouraged to name their price to download the song from candiceanitra.bandcamp.com, from which all proceeds will benefit the people of Haiti, via Partners in Health’s construction of the 180,000 square foot, 320-bed Mirebalais National Teaching Hospital that will change the face of public health care in Haiti.
The Global Syndicate’s “Shine a Light” Campaign to provide solar-powered lights to subsistence wage earners – who otherwise pay up to 30% of their income for kerosene to see at night – improving education, productivity, and the environment, while reducing violence against women and children.
