Alt. Country Artist and Academy Award Nominee Allison Moorer to Perform at Children's Charity Event
WEST SIMSBURY, Conn., Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Allison Moorer will be holding a private performance on Friday September 27th in New York City to benefit the Canary Kids Film Project, a documentary film project that will provide healing services to children diagnosed with chronic illnesses. Moorer is slated to play during "An Evening of Inspiration," a charity fundraising event to be held at the Harmonie Club on East 6oth Street in New York, NY.
Allison Moorer is returning to the live stage as a solo performer. In the past three years, she has welcomed into the world her son John Henry, recorded and toured as part of Steve Earle & The Dukes and Duchesses, and also wrote the song "Oklahoma Sky," which closed Miranda Lambert's 2011 hit album Four The Record. Moorer's seventh and latest studio album, Crows (2010), received worldwide critical acclaim with The Huffington Post stating that she was "blessed with one of the best voices of her generation." It was the follow up to her celebrated collection of covers, the 2008 Buddy Miller-produced Mockingbird. In 1998, Moorer's song "A Soft Place To Fall" was included on the soundtrack to Robert Redford's feature film The Horse Whisperer (in which she also appeared), which led to an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. The opportunity gained her worldwide attention and set the stage for her career. She has been featured on releases by Joan Baez, Kid Rock, Steve Earle, The Chieftains, and Los Straightjackets. Moorer was also featured in The People Speak, a beautiful and moving documentary inspired by Howard Zinn's popular text, A People's History of the United States. The film, presented by The History Channel, also featured Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Danny Glover, Matt Damon and more.
The Canary Kids Project, sponsored by Epidemic Answers, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, will enroll seven children in a healing and recovery program that will span 18 months. The children's recovery journey will be documented on film and weaved into a powerful feature-length film that will provide an exposé on the environmental origins of the epidemics of autism, ADHD/ADD, asthma, allergies and other conditions skyrocketing in children. The Project will demonstrate that these conditions can often be reversed using cutting-edge healing modalities. For more information, please see www.canarykidsmovie.com.
