Glitz and Glamour Replace the Ravages of Chemo and Cancer During a Special Showcase at SMGlobal Catwalk

Courage and beauty are evident as patients model on the runway during SMGlobal Catwalk. The models, who are in the midst of surgeries, chemo, and radiation beat cancer in every step they take.

Glitz and Glamour Replace the Ravages of Chemo and Cancer During a Special Showcase at SMGlobal Catwalk

Dallas, TX, November 08, 2019 –(PR.com)– Stage 4 cancer, a disease that cuts too many lives short and carries a stigma of fear and uncertainty, can be lived with courage and beauty. Say YES to Hope co-founder Suzanne Lindley and international designer, fashion mogul and Dallas resident Samina Mughal, owner of SMGlobal Catwalk partnered to share a special event that allows stage 4 cancer patients to, for a night, exchange chemo and cancer for the glitz and glamour of fashion. Samina lends her international platform for survivors to model and Suzanne brings patients to share their stories, creating an empowering night where fashion and philanthropy collide.

Ten stage 4 cancer patients will fulfill a dream of modeling in SMGlobal Catwalk Dallas Revolution Saturday, November 9 at The Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas, Texas. The showcase shows that no one is immune from cancer and the models range from a local theater owner, a fireman, an attorney, a hairdresser, an Uber driver and to moms and even a GrandJan! Each survivor has a powerful story and a strong message of hope. Just before these 10 warriors rock the runway, Carla Trout will set the stage with grace and lift the audience with her sweet, beautiful voice singing “Thread of Hope.”

International fashion model Can Muhammed Karagoz, who is flying in from New York, will give runway tips before the show and help with the walkthrough so that everyone feels ready. As many of the survivor models are in active treatment, and have even undergone recent surgeries, the assistance up the stairs and a steady shoulder from Can is reassuring. He has had an active role in each of the survivor showcases and is as much a part of the excitement and anticipation as the catwalk itself.

Singer/songwriter and East Texas native, Clay Thrash, will perform during the show and will end with a song that he wrote for Say YES to Hope. After Clay and Suzanne met, she asked him to write a song and gave him just the four words and numerous survivor stories to help him with his creation. He has since performed “Gonna Beat this Thing” at industry events and an official Oscar party. He will close the show with his powerful words.

Everyone is looking forward to the show. Samina Mughal describes the event as “a favorite for attendees” and “a beautiful chance for cancer patients to enjoy a once in a lifetime opportunity.” She is honored to be able to give such a memorable opportunity. Information on the “Surviving in Fashion” showcase with Say YES to Hope and SMGlobal Catwalk can be found at SMGlobalCatwalk.com. If you have stage 4 cancer and need a friend for the Journey or support, please contact Suzanne Lindley at 877-937-7478.

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! Children’s Picture Book with Pudgy Poultry is a Satisfying Bedtime Snack

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! Children’s Picture Book with Pudgy Poultry is a Satisfying Bedtime Snack

Peru, IN, November 08, 2019 –(PR.com)– For pooped-out parents who pine for brief bedtime reads, this funny and fast-paced children’s picture book with a zoo full of anxious animals raining rapidly is just what the veterinarian ordered. Author/illustrator Sherry West and good friend/co-illustrator Larkin Stephens-Avery share an artistic appreciation for antsy animals and feathered fowl which they put to good use in this new children’s picture book, “It’s Raining Cats! It’s Raining Dogs! It’s Raining Bats! And Pollywogs!” by Morgan James Publishing. Ms. Avery is the proud progenitor of the pudgy poultry who inspire the feathered flock frantically flying through its end pages. (No chubby chickens came to any harm in the creation of this vegan-friendly book.)

“We have to duck and run for cover while chickens cluck and near us hover!” exclaim unseen participants as they are pelted by poultry. Other owl-eyed Boynton-esque critters freefall through pastel pages – delighting and engaging readers of all ages.

Across the board, parents, librarians, and educators report consistently positive reactions from children – delighted giggling and laughter with each turn of the page and begging for more.

Children easily acquire important English language skills as lyrical verse humorously and effortlessly carries parent and child along to its conclusion. Thankfully, this talented team is already at work on the next installment in this silly series.

About Sherry West: Sherry is an Indiana Children’s Book Author and Illustrator, member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, a former ESL teacher, educational writer, award-winning poet and homeschooling mom of three. Her designs have recently been featured in the latest issue of the United Kingdom’s Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and appear regularly on Hochanda TV.

For more about Sherry, visit: https://www.SherryWestArts.com

About Larkin Stephens-Avery: Larkin is an undergraduate student in art at Indiana University and works at a public library. As a young reader, she struggled with dyslexia and the resulting low self-esteem. Excelling in art compensated for this, but she has never forgotten her struggles. For that reason, this book’s text has been designed with dyslexic readers in mind.

With 28 pages of rollicking rhyme and creative cartooning, “It’s Raining Cats! It’s Raining Dogs! It’s Raining Bats! And Pollywogs!” is appropriate for readers ages 2-8 and is available for $9.95 from Morgan James Publishing at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other fine book retailers.

Sound Royalties Defies Stereotype, Revolutionizes Music Financing in the Artist-Driven Digital Economy

Embraced by Creatives, Business Model Offers a Quality Alternative to Traditional Banks

Sound Royalties Defies Stereotype, Revolutionizes Music Financing in the Artist-Driven Digital Economy

Nashville, TN, November 07, 2019 –(PR.com)– With the explosive growth of digital technology, the music industry is evolving at an exponential rate. On-demand digital streams grew by 49 percent in 2018, and now account for 80 percent of total music industry revenue. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) reports that by 2025, one billion people will be downloading music.

This massive shift has created a new, artist-driven music economy where the creator is king. There are more platforms than ever before to showcase, share and sell music, and new digital royalty streams allow independent artists to generate lucrative income and grow a global fan base one song at a time. As an asset class, music royalties are hot, with investors paying record multiples in the category.

But some things haven’t changed. The music industry is fiercely competitive, and it still takes money to build a career. Fortunately, innovative funding options for creative projects are starting to drive out the predatory lenders who once peddled unfavorable advances to songwriters, performers and producers. Unscrupulous operators who would gladly take possession in default of the one thing artists need to preserve – their royalty copyrights – are seen as pariahs among today’s creator class.

In their place have emerged a new breed of artist-friendly finance specialists like Sound Royalties, who have been embraced as part of the creative community. Its CEO, Alex Heiche, a Nashville resident and classically trained pianist with a passion for music, founded Sound Royalties in 2014. Sound Royalties’ mission is to provide creatives with working capital backed by their royalty income, without ever putting their copyrights at risk. Sound Royalties advances funding based on the music and its royalty streams, not the person, and never buys or takes possession of a client’s copyrights, even in default.

“We offer an alternative to traditional banking solutions without the need for personal financial statements or tax returns,” said Heiche. “Banks can be constrained by banking regulations that can prohibit them from funding these types of transactions. Sound Royalties strives to be as flexible as possible and build each transaction to fit our customers’ unique needs.”

Sound Royalties uses dynamic pricing based on an analysis of future royalty income, offering advances between $5,000 and $10 million. Songs are evaluated on five criteria: the song’s age and income-producing history; the income source such as ASCAP, BMI, SESAC and others; the royalty type, whether publishing or recording copyrights, traditional or streaming; the depth of catalog, whether a single song or many; and genre, since some music categories have a longer shelf life than others. Finally, the length of the deal is factored in. The artist then selects from a range of customized options.

Pitbull, Lil Wayne, gospel-jazz musician Ben Tankard, and Latin music sensation Brenda K. Starr understand the advantages of the Sound Royalties approach, as do up-and-coming artists such as New Jersey rapper Mesa and soundtrack composer Adonis Tsilimparis (CSI:NY, History Channel). Mesa has used Sound Royalties on three occasions, putting funds toward new music, video production and income-producing investments. Since the time of his first funding, his streaming numbers have skyrocketed well into the millions. Tsilimparis, who recently moved from New York to L.A., has used advances to relieve debt, buy new equipment and hire an orchestra for a film score. “Good orchestras are expensive,” he said. “It helped save the film.”

“Knowledge is power in our business, regardless of your level of success,” said Mesa. “The way Sound Royalties gives you the knowledge and lets you choose your option is the opposite of the stereotypical lender.”

Sound Royalties reverses the misperception that obtaining an advance is too expensive. Their response is a commitment to pricing transparency and artist-first policies such as seeking to make pass-through royalty income part of every deal and not requiring 100 percent recoupment. Heiche’s advocacy for creatives and extensive knowledge of the complex flows of royalty streams is well known, having been invited to speak on the subject by the Recording Academy, Sync Summit, Vanderbilt University, Belmont University and many other organizations.

As technology expands, producing and distributing new content means earning more royalty income and the opportunity to leverage that income and scale a career to greater heights. With a wealth of expertise in copyrights, licensing and royalty-based financing, Sound Royalties is helping creators take control, seize their independence and fulfill their destiny in the new music economy.

About Sound Royalties
Founded by CEO Alex Heiche, Sound Royalties, LLC is a privately-owned specialty finance firm that helps music industry professionals fund personal and professional projects without ever taking ownership of their copyrights, allowing for pass-through income, and empowering creatives to choose from a variety of flexible pricing options. The company’s core business is offering royalty advances of anywhere from $5,000 to $10 million. It does this by advancing artist, producer and songwriter royalties paid through music labels, distributors, publishers and PROs such as BMI, ASCAP, SESAC, SoundExchange and many more. To date, Sound Royalties has worked with a wide range of leading music industry professionals, including GRAMMY Award winners, platinum recording artists and notable music industry executives in every genre.
