Now ‘Forty & Fierce,’ Sweet Honey In The Rock launches Indiegogo campaign
By: Jim Bessman
They’re 40 years old—and fierce. Hence, Sweet Honey In The Rock’s 40th Anniversary: Forty & Fierce show and tour, for which the venerable a cappella ensemble has launched a fan-driven funding campaign via Indiegogo.
“We did a lot of talking, soul-searching, and brainstorming, and ultimately felt that the independent spirit that has fueled all our artistic endeavors—and been the driving force to our longevity—couldn’t be better served than by partnering with our fans and Indiegogo on this milestone celebration and venture,” says Sweet Honey’s Carol Maillard.
The group seeks to raise $35,000 by Oct. 10. The funds will cover the production costs for the 40th Anniversary: Forty & Fierce year-long show and tour, which will be independently produced by their SHE-ROCKS 5 Productions company and performed from January, 2014 to January, 2015.
