White Cane Day NYC- 15th Oct
A press release:
New York based alt-pop artist Anne Tello has teamed up with local not-for-profit Helping Hands for the Disabled (HHDNYC) to launch an exciting new “Beautiful” music video in honor of “White Cane Day”- a government designated day of awareness for the blind and visually impaired, celebrated each year on October 15th. We are very excited to announce that the Harlem Independent Living Center has now partnered with us, to add a celebration on Tuesday October 18th, 2016, with keynote speaker Governor David A. Patterson.
The video, a reimagined cover of Christina Aguilera’s 2002 hit “Beautiful”, features 64 year old Manhattan resident Lucia Marett, who is has been blind since birth, who had adamantly told Tello that she wanted to make a Youtube video to “show people what she could do” For preview: https://vimeo.com/185036114 Password: beautiful
The video is meant to drive interest in “White Cane Day NYC” programming, to inspire New Yorkers to volunteer, and to promote a fall fundraising effort for HHDNYC.
Anne Tello is a rising New York based singer- songwriter, whose most recent single, a Peter Monk remix of her single “Think Different” hit #27 on the Digital DJ Pool Club Charts. The “Think Different” music video was presented as video installation at the Raleigh Visual Arts Exchange last March, after her debut self-titled E.P. was released in February 2016.
