Former Renaissance singer Annie Haslam, and her new friends, Think of 3 guitarist Kevin Mackie, and singer-songwriter Steve Pullara joined forces to create a four and a half minute video to help build awareness for a new SERENITY HOUSE CD.
The video, which was filmed by artsyvideo's Joe Dinato can be seen at
the web site: www.myspace.com/serenityhousecd.
But the video offers a unique take, because the new headquarters of East Coast Recording Company's studio is a former training center for astronauts, including Alan Shepherd, Buzz Aldrin, John Glenn, and Neil Armstrong. "We moved in and began fixing up the new studio, and started finding all kinds of reports and research materials about space training from the early 1960s," says Kevin Mackie, who co-owns the studio with Jim Cavero, and Don and Barb Donapel. In addition, the recording specialists also discovered extraordinary echo in one room. "This was a centrifuge," says Mackie. "This is where the astronauts trained and tested for their future space flights"
Realizing the spirit of the space program reflected humankind's unlimited potential, it was just a small step to tie in the creative fulfillment that Kevin, Annie, and Steve discovered as they created the fundraising album, called SERENITY HOUSE. The CD's purpose is to raise funds for a hospice to be built called Serenity House Hospice Support of Doylestown, PA.
Serenity House is a volunteer organization providing physical, emotional and spiritual support, without cost, to those incurably ill members of our community and nurtures those who love them. The capital campaign will begin in the near future and, once the funds are raised, the construction will begin.
Initially Kevin started the project a year ago, and--in the past five months--the whole project came together with songs donated from a pretty impressive list of artists: ASIA, Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Annie Haslam (Renaissance), Pat DiNizio (The Smithereens), Robert Hazard, Kathy Sledge (Sister Sledge), Think Of 3, The Luck Brothers, Jann Klose, Sterling Koch (V.I.H.), Dave Renz with Bob Miles and Steve Pullara.
This CD was made possible because of caring donations from sponsors: Shop Rite of Warminster (owned and operated by the Brown Family) and The Albin Family Foundation.
The public can also take a small step and purchase the CD at http:/www.myspace.com/serenityhousecd. The more sales, the more giant the leap and success for building the Serenity House of Doylestown, PA.
