As part of The Pixel Project’s Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert, we talk to the music artists who have participated in the concert about why they are using their music to speak out and to say NO to violence against women.
Our fifth featured artist is Carolan Deacon who is an Illuminating Songstress and Truth Guide. A musical wellness warrior, she is armed with her gifts of voice, coaching and healing arts. Carolan creates live and virtual experiences that light a path to living in the freedom of truth. She is the creator of Ease & Grace Circle, and Empowered Voice Coalition, 2 international communities that empower women with finding their true voice and living in the freedom of their Truth. Her positive life-affirming music plays a key role in her programs as she believes in the power of music to heal and transform. Her concerts are enjoyed around the country and her music and teachings can be found on her website.
The Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert was held in support of the Celebrity Male Role Model Pixel Reveal campaign in benefit of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and The Pixel Project. Donate at just US$1 per pixel to reveal the mystery Celebrity Male Role Models and help raise US$1 million for the cause while raising awareness about the important role men and boys play in ending violence against women in their communities worldwide.
Donations begin at just US$1 and while the Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert Indiegogo fundraiser is still running from June 5th to July 5th 2015, donors can donate to get exclusive music and artist goodies ranging from personal Skype concerts to treat bundles for the serious music lover.
Tell us about yourself and why you have decided to take part in The Pixel Project’s Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert.
I am a singer/songwriter who creates songs that empower, shift energy and boost positive thoughts. I have seen what happens first hand when a woman experiences violence against her. I was excited to hear of The Pixel Project’s Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert because this is an issue close to my heart.
My heart just absolutely sings when I think of The Pixel Project and the powerful message it carries! Thank you! I am honoured to come together with this fabulous group of people sharing their gifts in ways that both increase awareness of and offer supportive solutions to violence against women around the world. No More!
Why is ending violence against women important to you?
Her spirit can crumple and it is devastating. The effects of her experience can ripple over into every area of her life and last for years, whether she is aware of it or not.
In your opinion how does music help in efforts to end violence against women?
As a Positive Music artist and creator of True Voice Coalition (a community committed to helping women around the world reclaim the power of their own voice and live free and empowered), I have seen the transformation that happens when a woman cultivates her sense of self and decide to live empowered and free.
I love the fact that music can play a key role on changing lives as it has the unique ability to heal us and enhance our neuroplasticity, which in turn helps us make tough changes with more ease and comfort.
What actions can music artists take to help end violence against women?
Put the message of hope and empowered freedom in your lyrics. Be eager to put your face, your music and your voice out to the world in saying: NO MORE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN!
