Voices United Record Release Party and Fundraiser Tonight
|Voices United recording at the Hit Factory|
Not many records released this year will have as much good karma on their side as Lost & Found, the new album by Miami nonprofit Voices United.
Voices United was founded in 1989 by then 17-year-old director Katie Christie. It brings together 150 local children a year together to write and perform a vocal and theatrical production. This summer, 25 of those students -- ranging in age from 12 to 18 -- got together with sound engineer Carlos "El Loco" Bedoya at Aaron Fishbein's studio, The Franchise, to record a four-song EP that's being released tonight during a fundraiser at Las Tias in Wynwood (2834 N Miami Ave).
Tickets to the 7:30 p.m. event are $40-75 (remember, it's going to the kids), which gets you free wine and bubbly, music from Voices United alum DJ Hot Pants, a special appearance by NBC-6 anchor Willard Shepard, and a silent auction that includes a week-long trip to the Bahamas. The album costs $6. Buy two!
