” Life is too short NOT to pursue your dreams”
— Jade Alston
Jade Alston’s “Kickstarter Happy Hour” on Thursday August 29, 2013 at the Dream Building was an enjoyable evening. I finally got a chance to meet some of the faces I’ve seen through social media and it was also a pleasure to meet and get to know some of the other talented folks that attended. The Happy hour event was hosted by Fashion Director, Angelique Hunter of American Dreaming Magazine and Singer/Songwriter, Jade Alston. It was a small gathering with tasty healthy snacks, fine wine and some of Philly’s finest multi-talented artist.

The Kick Starter Happy Hour event was a last minute idea of Jade and Angelique’s, to get to know some of the supporter’s and fans of Jade and to also promote her first album “We Will Live”. Over the summer life threw Jade a curve ball when she was diagnosed with a potentially deadly heart condition called…
MYOCARDITIS: An inflammation of the heart muscle. That is responsible for 20% of sudden deaths among young adults –WEBMD
Until this point Jade was afraid to to do an album and continue to pursue her dreams in music. However, this experience has given her a new appreciation for TIME, LIFE and DREAMS. It takes a lot of courage and faith within oneself to continue to pursue a dream not knowing when or how much time one may have to do so. Jade was very upbeat and happy-go-lucky and I saw that her condition did not define her, her MUSIC and her drive to keep moving forward with TIME and LIFE does. I commend her for being strong at a time such as this and it was a pleasure to finally meet the lady who sings one of my favorite’s “Missing You Lately” one of Jade’s early tracks.
I’m so looking forward to the next Kick Starter event that I think will be “Karaoke” I hope so, so can finally do my rendition of Tina Turner’s “NutBush” they call it NutBush city limits LMBO!
Fighters! Are those who stand and face adversity no matter what the situation may look like. Fighters! Are those who get knocked down but can always manage to get back up again. Fighters! Fight for what they believe in even when no one else does -MissLIV
