What better way to celebrate the holidays than to purchase a CD and attend a show where all the proceeds are donated to a worthy cause? A Holiday Benefit, vol. 3 does just that. Comprised of 12 tracks from some of New York City’s finest emerging artists, all the proceeds made will be donated to 826NYC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.
I’ve been covering the annual benefit show the past two years and it’s always a great night of music by talented New York musicians. This year will be no different. The charity CD release party is set for December 16th at Pianos and will feature performances from Bess Rogers, Bryan Dunn, Casey Shea, Paula Valstein, Emily Easterly, Chris Cubeta, Martin Rivas, Chris Abad, Misty Boyce, Ruby Rivers, Benjamin Wagner and Emily Zuzik.
Watch the video for “Christmas Is The Time To Say I Love You,” a collaboration between the artists featured on A Holiday Benefit, Vol. 3 below. You can preview and buy the album on CD baby here. And be sure to catch the performers live at Pianos next Wednesday at 8pm!
