9th Annual Voices Carry

October 3, 2013 | Read more »

I was honored to be part of this year’s 9th Annual Voices Carry event held at Stage AE on October 1st. The event is Auberle’s largest annual fundraiser to provide opportunities, programs and services for the more than 2,300 at-risk children and families Auberle serves each year.

The event was hosted by Randy Baumann from the WDVE morning show and featured a concert showcasing some of Pittsburgh’s best talent including Rick Witkowski, Donnie Iris, Scott Blasey and Joe Gruschecky. This was my first time performing at the event and decided to cover “Me and Bobby McGee”, which was super fun to perform with Rick Witkowski and his all star band!

The event was a huge success and helped to raise over $132,000 for Auberle children and families!

Here’s a great review of the night from Pittsburgh Music Magazine: http://pittsburghmusicmagazine.com/2013/10/02/voices-carry-is-the-pittsburgh-all-star-event-of-the-year-at-stage-ae/
