sm-FINAL-FAWN XMAS 2014 CD COVER FINAL (700 x 700)

Billboard hit recording artist Fawn and world-renown DJ Chad Jack release their first holiday album. “Angels We Have Heard On High.” Proceeds to benefit Arme’s Beagle Freedom Project.

Nov. 14, 2014HOLLYWOODOn Friday, November 14, 2014 World Wide Vital Marketing & Public Relations announced that hit recording artist and singer/songwriter Fawn, (also known as ‘Songirl’) and world-renown House DJ and producer Chad Jack are releasing their first Holiday album, ‘Angels We Have Heard On High.’

This is not the first time Fawn and Chad Jack have successfully collaborated. In 2010 they made it to #6 on the Billboard Dance charts with producer Tim Letteer with Fawn’s song ‘Wish U Love.’ Since the massive success of‘Wish U Love,’ Fawn and Chad Jack have produced other songs together which have aired in Film and TV shows such as The Natalee Holloway Story, Nickelodeon’s Hollywood Heights and the CBS soap opera, The Young and The Restless.

“This started off last winter as 1 or 2 Christmas songs for TV, then turned into an EP, then grew into a full-blown album of 15 tracks – It was completely unplanned” Chad laughed.  Fawn added, “I think after Chad and I recorded the first 5 songs, we got excited and decided to do 3 more. Then we kept adding tracks until it grew to 4 original songs, 6 popular Christmas songs, 1 well known Chanukah song, 4 different languages and 4 remix versions.” Chad explained, “Producing this type of an album was definitely a first for me and probably one of the most challenging projects that I’ve ever been involved with to date. Challenging not necessarily because of the actual production, but rather for attempting to capture an authentic ‘Club / Radio Friendly’ vibe for Christmas & Chanukah songs that are not normally thought of in that respect.” He went on to say, “The end result has become something that we are very happy with and hope that many others will also enjoy for years to come.”

Tracks on the album include new renditions of ‘Deck The Halls,’ ‘Oh Chanukah,’ ‘Angels We Have Heard On High,’ ‘Jingle Bells,’ ‘O Come Emmanuel,’ ‘Joyful, Joyful,’ and others. Fawn continued, “During the making of this album, Chad and I both lost some irreplaceable souls who we were close to, so I wrote and melody and lyrics for ‘Another Year With Out You.’ She reflected, “Actually, due to the onslaught of angel wings being earned in the 10 months it took to make this album, some of the tracks were personally very difficult for me to write, sing and get through. So although this album makes ya wanna smile, dance and holiday shop, it has a lot of heart to it.”

Recording Artist Fawn Shannon Keith and ollieAnd the heart doesn’t stop with just this epic holiday album, it continues by giving back to a ground breaking charitable organization. One Third of all sales from the album are benefitting Arme’s Beagle Freedom Project, a non-profit organization that rescues beagles and other animals used for animal experimentation in research laboratories around the world. President and founder of Beagle Freedom Project Shannon Keith said, “Fawn is an amazing artist and we are so delighted that she and DJ Chad Jack have chosen to use their unique talents and compassion to support Beagle Freedom Project.

Fawn is bringing joy to people this holiday season with her joyous musical talents and we hope that the funds raised from sales will allow us to give freedom to many more laboratory animals.” Shannon continued, “Your purchase of her album will directly help us in rescuing more animals in laboratories.” Fawn explained, “’Tis the season to be giving and helping others, and I can’t think of a better non-profit organization to give back to than Arme and Beagle Freedom Project.” Fawn continued, I met Founder and President Shannon Keith almost 5 years ago and have watched her work tirelessly for the sake of making this world a better place to be in. She is one of the kindest and hardest working people I know and I support her and her incredible work. Not only is she there for any and every animal, she is always available to help other rescues and rescuers.” Fawn concluded, “It doesn’t get better than Shannon. She is the real deal.”

Over 250 Animals Right Activists Take Action To Make West Hollywood The First Fur Free City in the USA

January 31, 2011 by  
Filed under Breaking News, Community, Events, News

over 250 animal rights activists and concerned citizens in WEHOOn Saturday, January 29, 2011 over 250 animal rights activists and concerned citizens, young and old stood side by side in the Matthew Shephard Memorial Triangle Park on the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Crescent Heights in West Hollywood, California to rally for a fur-free West Hollywood.
Wireless from AT&T


With this ground-breaking action, the City of West Hollywood could become the first completely fur free city in the United States, leading as an example for the rest of the world to follow. The progressive city of “WeHo” was the first town to pass an anti-declaw bill and all out ban on live pet sales in the nation. With WeHo referring to human companions of animals as “guardians” instead of the past term, “owners,” it’s no wonder that they would make this unprecedented move to have an entirely fur free environment. Award winning director and animal rights attorney Shannon Keith said “in 1989 West Hollywood signed a resolution to make an animal cruelty-free zone, and it can’t be an animal cruelty-free zone unless they stop the selling of fur.”


To help make this happen, John D’Amico has stepped up to the plate, supporting the fur free message in his campaign for West Hollywood City Council. He is going to focus on this legislation while in office and be a continual advocate for a fur free world. He said that “West Hollywood has the opportunity to once again be a leader for animal welfare by becoming the first fur-free city in the nation.” D’Amico continued, “We have pledged to be a place that is free of cruelty to animals and we can no longer support the barbaric fur trade by selling the products of that cruelty in our city.”

Ed Buck, one of the organizers of “Fur Free WeHo,” said “This campaign is not just about banning fur but promoting West Hollywood as the capital of fur-free fashion, especially in its boutique district that includes a Stella McCartney store, which already shuns furs.” Buck was instrumental in helping get the ordinance passed which bans the sale of puppy mill animals in pet stores.

The initiative would make West Hollywood the first fur-free community in the United States and possibly the world. Hit Recording Artist Fawn commented “West Hollywood has always been a city ahead of it’s time, and the time is NOW to stop killing helpless and loving animals for their fur. The vanity of the fashion industry is utter insanity. People who wear real fur and even some faux furs have blood on their hands.”

Fawn walked through the crowd and streets, turning heads and hearts with a stark reminder written on a double-sided sign, adorned over her stunning rescued white wolf dog Coda, which read “15 of me = 1 fur coat” and “My father died for your fur coat.” When resident Deanne Sire saw the sign, she said “I guess I never thought of my fur having been a living being and having had a dad.”

 


Actor Bill McNamara stated “Fur is definitely something we need to abolish, there is no reason that anybody today, in America needs to wear fur. It symbolized meanness of spirit. There is no other reason to wear it.”

New York Times Best Selling Author, Rory Freedman agreed with McNamera, sporting a shirt which read “Mean People Wear Fur.” Freedman explained, “Amongst other horrors, animals killed for their fur are subject to neck-breaking, strangulation, drowning, and anal or vaginal electrocution. Some are even skinned alive. All this so people with low self esteem can wear this shit and someone can make a few bucks selling it? Totally unacceptable and completely unnecessary.” She added, “I am thrilled that John D’Amico is making this issue his running platform and that West Hollywood can set a precedent for other cities to follow. Real change is not only possible, it’s imminent.”


Lords Of Acid vocalist Lacey Conner declared “The fur industry will never make itself humane and the only way to stop the fur industry is to make it go out of business.” She continue, “Don’t buy fur, if no one bought fur, the fur industry would go out of business and this mistreatment would not happen. I’m just asking people to please take a few minutes to to find out what is really going on.”


Film Producer Shannon Keith pointed out, “We have an election coming up on March 8th and it’s a great time to vote for the candidate that has a platform against fur. Once we get those candidates in place in city council, we will be able to move forward with this.”


“This is not about punishment or shame, it’s about really thinking creatively about how we live in the world and taking action and stopping the barbaric actions of harvesting fur, and really looking at who we are as individuals and as a people and West Hollywood is a great place for this to start.” Concluded Candidate John D’Amico.

Wireless from AT&T
On Thursday, December 2, 2010 at 9:30pm there was a pre-release special screening at the Artivist Film Festival of the documentary “How I Became An Elephant” produced by Jorja Fox and Tim Gorski. Due to incredible demand, the exclusive screening was held in the large movie theater at the Egyptian in Hollywood. The pre-release was originally scheduled for Saturday, December 4th in a smaller theater but was re-scheduled to accommodate a beyond sold-out audience of over 400 enthusiasts.

Directed by Award winning film makers, Tim Gorski and Synthian Sharp, this “Rattle The Cage Productions” documentary tells the heartwarming and heartwrenchheart-wrenching14 year old girl, Juliette West who journeys to Thailand to meet up with Asia’s famed Elephant savior, Lek Chailert. With love in their hearts and determination in their minds, Lek and Juliette set out to rescue the female elephant, Ratree, a severely abused 35 year-old elephant, from the Surin Elephant Roundup. Volunteers and the RTC film production crew made the 22 hour trip by truck to transport Ratree (which means Midnight, because she was their “midnight girl”), to her new home at the Elephant Nature Park. The film details what elephants go through overseas, with a short capsulization of their treatment in the United States. When asked about the film, Jorja Fox said “This movie is about elephants, it’s for elephants. It’s for our kids and their kids. But it applies to all the world’s animals, and the environment as a whole.” Film goer Melody said “I cried. They are such beautiful animals. I just can’t understand how people could treat them badly. How could someone see the pain and sadness in the eyes of any living creature and still hurt it?” When other audience members were asked to comment, the reactions seemed to be the same. Jean said “It was dreadful to see those majestic creatures treated so badly.” She went on to say “as for the Circus, I have never been and would never go.” Last Change For Animals undercover investigator Bryan stated “this is a must see movie for any one who is conscious. Whether you’re an elephant expert or have never seen an elephant before, you will learn something and be moved to action by this film.” Shop our Free Shipping Collection at 1-800-BASKETS.COM - 468x60

Pink with Recording Artist FawnBy JR, Special for Diversity News

On Saturday, September 18, 2010 Puppy Mill Awareness Day was presented by Last Chance for Animals at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles from 11:00 am to 3:00pm to support the Adopt, Don’t Shop initiative and bring awareness of the horrific conditions of puppy mills.

Dog Whisperer Cesar Milan spoke at the event encouraging the packed audience to go to shelters and rescues to adopt, rather than buy at pet stores, which get their dogs from puppy mills. There were a variety of cruelty-free vendors and booths including vegan food booths and Humane education booths, various speakers, a silent auction, face painting and music with a highlighted performance by The Faded whose music is heard in the award-winning documentary Skin Trade. Celebrities in attendance were Musicians Pink, Poison’s Rikki Rocket, Fawn, Lord’s of Acid vocalist Lacey Conner and Actress Michelle Forbes. Also in attendance were undercover investigator Bryan Monell, director Shannon Keith, animal advocates Kim Sill and Jack Carone, LCA Board President Carol Araneo, West Hollywood City Council Member Jeffrey Prang, Last Chance for Animals Founder and CEO Chris DeRose, Humane Society’s Dale Bartlett, SPCA ‘s Madeline Bernstein and Animal Acres Representative and actress Ciddy Fonteboa. The event was launched to create awareness against puppy mills which are appalling places for dogs to survive. In the puppy mills, they are bred over and over for pet stores. On her twitter page, Pink made a series of tweets about her experience at the event, saying “It’s puppy mill awareness day and I just got back from the incredible event at La Brea Tar Pits. No more puppy mills!!” “Puppy mills are awful, filthy, cruel places where dogs never see daylight, sleep in their own feces, and r (are) bred over n (and) over for pet stores. Boycott pet stores people!!!!”  She has asked her fans to boycott pet stores. Wireless from AT&T About Last Chance for Animals: Last Chance for Animals (LCA) recognizes that animals have the ability to experience pain, and as such they deserve certain basic rights protecting them from pain caused by humans. LCA believes that non-human animals should not be subjected to suffering and exploitation by humans because alternatives exist for nearly every traditional “usage” of animals. DonorsChoose.org LCA opposes the use of animals for scientific curiosity, entertainment, clothing, and food. LCA recognizes the use of non-human animals in medical experimentation as both immoral and of questionable scientific validity due to the tremendous biological difference between species. LCA’s work advocates conscious and informed lifestyle decisions, and the organization is committed to disseminating truthful information about societal animal abuse to improve the treatment of animals. To find out more about the issue, stop by BanPuppyMills.com.
