New York Musician Robert Rossi to Launch New Project “Weathervane” for Global Cancer Awareness
WEATHERVANE is the latest project from New York City musician Robert Rossi. The artist’s goal is to create global awareness for the devastating disease Cancer. The project is inspired by his Mother’s battle with metastasized breast cancer.
To assist in the creation of Weathervane, Rossi is looking for worldwide volunteers and financial support to help with the creation of this music project and the subsequent marketing to bring the awareness necessary to help, even if in some small way, to eradicate cancer. The new album, Weathervane, will follow and is earmarked for release in early 2015 on Rossi’s independent record label Magic Flight Records.
On June 5th of this year, Rossi’s mother lost her battle with metastasized breast cancer. It had been a daunting year to say the least, and the finality of his mom’s passing has taken a major toll on Rossi and his family. At that point, and even previous to the inevitable, Rossi vowed to do something about bringing more awareness to this devastating disease. What better way to do that but by utilizing his God-Given talent of his music and songwriting expertise, to help bring this awareness.
The project will be launched with a video and the new full length record with all songs dedicated to the memory of Rossi’s mother, and to help bring more awareness to the cause. “Most of the songs on the new CD are written from what would be my mother’s perspective, especially the title track “Weathervane”
The project theme, Weathervane, is taken from the weathervane that tops the Vizcaya mansion in Florida; the place where Rossi’s parents were married. So the location and monument are obviously close to his heart. He felt this to be an appropriate name for his new album which celebrates his mother’s life
The initial work in progress has been financially supported by the artist with independent production through his record label Magic Flight Records LLC, and cannot be completed without your generous support.
Rossi further states “Imagine what a difference it could make if everyone around the world could pledge just one dollar for Cancer Awareness - medical research, treatment, therapy and education for this global cause would thrive.”
“The centerpiece of the Weathervane Project is a message through music.” states Robert Rossi. “Cancer has afflicted its punishment on humanity worldwide far too long – it recognizes no boundaries. There is fundamental need to generate new knowledge and awareness on a global platform through education.”
With the launch of the Weathervane Project, Robert Rossi is requesting worldwide volunteers and financial support to make this awareness campaign a reality. Please join him and give generously in order to make a difference.
