As we gather around family and friends let's think about the troops past and present who sacrifice daily for our FREEDOM! Let's keep them in our prayers everyday.
Hello Music Fans,
You have come to the crowdfunding home of DMORR and Red Fox Media Publishing Group! I am always touched by a families that go through traumatic situations in life, no fault of there own, such as a beautiful & loving family that has a child that has been diagnosed with a potentially fatal, painful and very inconvenient illness, disease or accident. Well as a very passionate songwriter, I really want to use my creative platform to help.
THE OFFER - only sales and donations on this site count towards the campaign
Well I would like to ask for your help in this MUSIC GIVES CROWDFUNDING PROJECT and I have pledged as a writer and producer, that University Hospitals of Cleveland Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital be direct benefactor of the success of the song, which we have an agreement that of any sales of CD's, related merchandise, downloads and direct donations to the project of the songs for 50% of the net proceeds will be re-directed to University Hospitals of Cleveland Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital as a donation from the DMORR Music Gives Crowdfunding Project. I believe this song will become a national sensation due to the rich melodies, modern and funky beat a smooth vocals and light rap that bring the message home for lovers of many genres would love (Rap, R&B, Hip Hop and Jazz) all rapped up in one (excuse the pun)!
Initial Goal for Final Production of "REFLECTION" = $5000 where 50% will go to Rainbow and the other 50% towards production. In return for a donation, a download of You're My Hero or other select songs from the Philadelphia Freedom Album by DMORR will be available for download which has sold around the world . You're My Hero has a military focus written after 911.
Our final goal after the song is released is at least $40,000 where 50% of the net revenues would be for the benefit of University Hospitals of Cleveland Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital. Now in my opinion, this song "Reflection" is so real that we should be able to raise 10X or more of the goal. The song is complete in music and arrangement but funds will funding the final production using professional vocalist, post production and to produce a very compelling music video as well.
This campaign is for transactions on DMORR's website www.dmorr.net and not that of any other outlets such as ITUNES, Amazon etc.
A SNAPSHOT OF THE SONG
This crowd funding campaign is inspired by the new song that I have written called "REFLECTIONS". In the song, there are three fictitious characters but in reality are as real as snow is white.
The first is Isaiah who is diagnosed with cancer but the inner peace and patience to let the process work out for healing is self evident. The dynamic of the family support does not go unnoticed because family will be living literally in the hospital for days, weeks, months and even years on end in some cases. What a struggle.
The second is BJ who was diagnosed with a condition that gives him 12 months to live. His blind trust in his faith is very evident and is so strong that being a good person no matter what he goes through is his important factoid.
The third is Erika the mother of BJ who spend countless hours in the hospital waiting on some good news but also takes it into her hand to help find through research that miracle cure! She tells how hard it is on her and the family.
I myself had a sister, my guardian angel #1 pass to the heavens from breast cancer in her young adult life, which was a three year battle, while she served in the military. Her and the passing of my wonderful beloved parents from their own battles is my continued INSPIRATION!
MY MUSIC SUMMARY
A little about me. I am Duane Morris (DMORR), a self taught writer of music since 1990, who has amassed and written over 350 songs which steadily grows with the passing of time. I was a church musician for 24 years in both North Carolina and Cleveland, Ohio areas, playing with some the "COLDEST" musicians around. I was one of thirteen musicians selected in the City of Cleveland to play at the Praisefest at the then named Gund Arena (Cleveland Cavaliers arena). I have an album called Philadelphia Freedom (not Elton John's version but there is a personal connection to the song title) that is out in every digital market including I-TUNES, Amazon MP3 etc. Songs have sold as far as Japan and in Europe.
I am also a dedicated father of two lovely children who are very gifted in their own right. Writing music is my passion that many do not understand but will one day lead me straight to the Grammy's and no one in my circle, I believe will be surprised as a writer and a producer. As my father said "Boy you have a great ear for music" and some of the compositions is a testimony to what my father, who was a great jazz drummer for the Jessie Dandy trio. I also have a brother in Philadelphia who is a professional double bass player as well. It's in the family.
Thank you very much for the support of the arts but in this case also a supporter of our medical institutions such as University Hospitals of Cleveland Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital (UHRB&CH), organized with the mission of bringing hope to those who need it most. In exchange for any donations in which 50% of the net will go to UHRB&CH and the other will go toward support of the arts and the production of the Maxi Single CD with a handful of select songs by DMORR including "REFLECTIONS"!
