Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert: What Artists Say

On June 6th 2015, our Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert will kick off on Google Hangout to bring you live, non-stop positive and uplifting music, performances, and Q&A sessions with 23 Indie and YouTube artists who have come together with The Pixel Project to raise their voices to say NO to violence against women and to raise funds towards the Celebrity Male Role Model Pixel Reveal campaign’s $1 million dollar goal in support of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence and The Pixel Project.

We invite you to scroll down to learn about why they support the Pixel Reveal campaign and to see what they have to say about supporting an end to violence against women.

It’s time to stop violence against women. Together.

As a popular music artist on YouTube and ambassador to The Pixel Project, we believe we are blessed with the responsibility to send a global message to raise awareness about violence against women. It is our hope that The Pixel Project’s Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert will be an extraordinary way to empower and strengthen the spirits of victims and survivors of violence against women.

The feminine qualities of compassion and understanding meant to balance the more aggressive forces are severely lacking in our world. Only when we see women as a necessary balance to men will we be able to find our true potential as humankind. I choose to support ending violence against women because I hope to see a world where our mothers and daughters are not in fear of their safety and are free to contribute their ideas and thoughts.

Alexis Umathum - HeadshotALEXIS UMATHUM – USA

It is a privilege to be a part of The Pixel Project’s Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert this year. Raising awareness of abuse towards women and children is incredibly important. So many people are completely in the dark when it comes to these topics. I hope that with projects like this, people will understand the problem and help as many victims out of these situations so they can restore their lives. It means so much to me to have my music be a part of such a meaningful cause. Thank you and God Bless!

We will have peace on earth when we see each other at our core, sparks of the divine. Not as men/women, colored/white skin, old/young, beautiful/ordinary, stranger/friend. We are all brothers and sisters, all mystical whispers of some big and beautiful wind. Once we find that center within us (which the song “Shine” refers to), we are able to recognize all beings as sacred, life as sacred, and therefore violence is not even a fleeting thought in our consciousness. I support all The Pixel Project’s efforts to end violence against women and girls, along with similar efforts that see all humans as sacred and all violence as never a possibility.

Carolan Deacon - HeadshotCAROLAN DEACON – USA

I am deeply honoured to be part of The Pixel Project and help light a fire of awareness standing up to say NO MORE! to violence against women. My goal is to carry a musical message of strength, empowerment and deep love for women who have suffered violence against them and at the same time raise awareness to our communities that violence against women is still happening EVERYWHERE and the ripple effects are devastating to our world. Intolerance, increasing awareness and using my voice to say NO MORE! is a privilege not every woman has and I am grateful to use it.

Cecilia St King - HeadshotCECILIA ST. KING – USA

I support The Pixel Project, because every woman deserves to feel safe, in their home, on the streets, in their communities, in their life. It fosters freedom, freedom to create, freedom to be educated, freedom to being their best selves. Stopping violence against women, heals the world.


Debbie Reifer - HeadshotCDEBBIE REIFER – BARBADOS

We have lost so much and so many at the hands of domestic violence yet we won’t acknowledge how intimately connected our survival as a species is to its eradication. Our world is losing its great teachers of love, compassion and honor and replacing them with gangs, war, drugs, rape, murder, human trafficking and prostitution. Save them. Save us.

Eva Universe HeadshotEVA UNIVERSE – USA

Domestic violence and abuse against women has been a very relevant topic in the media. Major headlines have featured horrific stories about this type of violence with well known celebrities and athletes. As an artist with a voice that has the power to reach the masses, I think it’s equally important to spread the awareness of how common it is among the rest of the population and to emphasize not only that this greatly exists, but to spread the knowledge of how to help bring this violence against women to an end.

Haley Blais - HeadshotHALEY BLAIS – CANADA

I’m proud and excited to be part of The Pixel Project’s Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert because I believe that women and girls should be able to live their lives in safety and freedom. Violence against women harms our families and communities and we all need to raise our voices and do what we can to stop it.


Hannah Wondmeneh - HeadshotHANNAH WONDMENEH – CANADA

I am so blessed to lend my voice to such a worthy cause. Violence against women is violence against those who are the hearts of communities around the world, from Canada to Congo. It is destructive. It is never okay. It is never their fault. I hope that we will empower women and men to speak out to end violence against women in their communities and around the world.

Harold Payne - HeadshotHAROLD PAYNE – USA

It is my honour to support The Pixel Project and assist in it’s efforts to end violence against women. It is of vital importance to empower and inform “at risk” women and girls and educate the rest of the world about their plight. Knowing that music can reach people in a powerful and unique way, I am proud to lend my voice to their efforts.

Jake Roque - HeadshotJAKE ROQUE – USA

I am honored to be able to be able to be a part of supporting The Pixel Project in stopping violence against women. Beyond just stopping this violence, I was raised to believe that women deserve an exceptional level of respect and I hope to use what influence I am given to encourage mutually respectful and loving interactions between all people. My hope is for all women and children to know they are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that we as a people should stand together to provide everyone with a life free from abuse.


Jana Stanfield - HeadshotJANA STANFIELD – USA

It’s been said that, “Hurt people…hurt people.” Many believe that abusers come from homes where they were abused and their mothers were abused. We’ve got to do all we can to stop this cycle in THIS generation, and I’m grateful to The Pixel Project for spearheading this worthwhile endeavor.

Juliet Weybret - HeadshotJULIET WEYBRET – USA

I am so grateful to be a part of The Pixel Project this year and to help raise awareness about violence against women. It is one of the least prosecuted crimes, and I hope that speaking up about it will contribute to and end to it. I hope to be able to reach out to women and girls who have been victims of this violence and remind them that they are loved and worth a life of respect and happiness.

Katie Sky - HeadshotKATIE SKY – UNITED KINGDOM

I am proud to say that I’m officially part of The Pixel Project’s Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert. Violence and abuse in relationships is one of the hardest things to spot. Many women aren’t even sure that they are being abused emotionally/physically until a friend steps in. We can be that friend! And if we aim to educate people on how to get help when abuse is going on, I believe we, as women, would really start to know that they deserve much more.


L Young - HeadshotL. YOUNG – USA

Violence Against Women not only destroys families, but the whole fabric of society. We as artists must do our part to eradicate violence in the home once and for all. Our future depends on it.

Lauren Ruth Ward - HeadshotLAUREN RUTH WARD – USA

As an artist and a woman, I support The Pixel Project’s efforts to stop violence against women because no woman or girl should live in daily fear for her safety and life. I hope that by participating in the Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert, my music and my voice will help raise awareness about this human rights atrocity and that more music fans will start taking action to stop the violence in their communities.

Mary Scholz - HeadshotMARY SCHOLZ – USA

It is extremely important to me to work towards the end of violence against women. Violence happens in so many ways – physical, psychological, sexual, emotional. Some are outrightly horrifying, and some are subtle, and still considered socially acceptable. It is a dangerous reality that women deal with on a daily basis, and it is an issue that needs to be addressed, publicly, in order to remove the stigma associated with such a discussion, therefor allowing actual work to be done.


Miguel Dakota - HeadshotMIGUEL DAKOTA – USA

It is important to stop violence against our mothers, daughters, and sisters. A society that treats women with integrity will further it’s own well being.

Nathen Aswell - HeadshotNATHEN ASWELL – CANADA

As a man and as a music artist, it is my responsibility and my pleasure to support my sisters everywhere through The Pixel Project. We’re all in this together.

Olivia Thai - HeadshotOLIVIA THAI – USA

I am incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to perform at the The Pixel Project’s Music for Pixels Summer Charity Concert during this time in my life. As I continue to heal from my own personal battle, I can only wish that everyone finds peace and educates themselves about the issue of domestic violence in relationships, friendships, and within families. I will be performing a song I wrote specifically for domestic violence victims who were kind enough to stay and return to their abusers time after time… only to realize their only ticket to freedom was to leave. You are not alone, and I truly hope we all find peace soon.


Rochelle Diamante - HeadshotROCHELLE DIAMANTE – USA

I am honored to be a part of The Pixel Project and their Music For Pixels Summer Charity Concert. There are so many women who feel trapped in an abusive situation and they don’t know how to get out. I am honored to be able to bring my music to help raise awareness for this amazing organization.

ULRIKA - HeadshotULRIKA – SWEDEN

I am honored to get to play my music in support of The Pixel Project’s mission to spread awareness, and to put an end to violence against women. As a Swedish feminist, I am a strong believer of absolute equality between the genders, and the thought of a human being not knowing her true worth, strengths and rights makes me very disheartened. NO ONE should make decisions based on fear and no one should have to live a life without love.
