Online PR News – 17-November-2013 – Portland, OR – Two local singer-songwriters, Redwood Sun and Naomi LaViolette, announce a double-feature evening at The Old Church, December 7, benefiting local non-profit Sunshine Division with a 2nd annual event called “Sing to Feed”. The concert will feature acoustic and holiday songs arranged by the artists, backed by an ensemble of singers gathered from Portland choral groups.
"The holiday season always gets me thinking about the staggering amount of people who are less fortunate and don't get a chance to enjoy the luxuries so many of us do this time of year, let alone the basic necessities like food and clothing," said Malm. “Sing to Feed is just one of the ways for our community to rally together, for one purpose, and bring some relief to those in need.”
Josh Malm, of Redwood Son, organized the "Sing To Feed" event last year, which was held at The Aladdin Theater in November.
Naomi LaViolette enthusiastically joins Malm for the second annual event hosted at The Old Church. A musical philanthropist herself, LaViolette said, “It is an honor to help others through music, especially during the holidays, which should be a time of joy and charity for all. Music connects people in ways beyond dollars and donations. It reaches the heart level.”
For the holidays, LaViolette will release a single - a unique arrangement of “Noel” featuring violin and choir, which she will play at this event with violinist Scott Stevens and the Sing To Feed Choir. Just last month, LaViolette released her second album, You’ve Got Me, at The Alberta Rose Theatre. Redwood Son is set to release a new EP in early 2014.
Benefiting the Sunshine Division:
Since 1923, the Portland Police Bureau Sunshine Division has provided food and clothing relief to Portland families and individuals in need. Whether due to the loss of a job, domestic crime, illness, or victims of fire or disaster, the Sunshine Division has built an 90-year legacy of mobilizing quickly and efficiently to assist distressed Portlanders.
