Campaign on Indiegogo to fund the last costs of her television special for PBS
Italian singer Giada Valenti, is invited to film her show From Venice With Love as a television special to be broadcast by PBS stations all over the country. But Giada has to pay a large part of the costs of the filming herself and has therefore started a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo – www.FromVeniceWithLove.com
For her television special, which will be also entitled From Venice With Love, Giada will be accompanied a full orchestra. In her show she takes her audience on a romantic journey performing her own interpretations of hits from the 60s, 70s, 80s as well as recent contemporary songs. She sings songs that were originally performed by The Beatles, The Carpenters, The Doors, Dean Martin, Etta James, Roberta Flack, Shirley Bassey, Edith Piaf, Linda Ronstadt, Rosemary Clooney, Christina Perri, Bruno Mars but also Italian singers like Mina, Ornella Vanoni, Pino Donaggio and Domenico Modugnio. All the songs that Giada performs in her television special have new arrangements made by the Grammy nominated arranger Chris Walden.
With this television special Giada will give the American audience a taste of the romantic feelings you will get when you are in Venice. She will bring a little bit of Venice to the United States. With this television special Giada wants to contribute to the promotion of Italian culture in the United States. Many of the songs she performs are written by Italians and as introduction of these songs she often tells stories how they are related to Italy or Venice. In her television special Giada will sing songs in English, Italian, French and Spanish. In the last years Giada has performed her show often at colleges and with this television special Giada wants to inspire young people to learn a foreign language. With her show she also would like to inspire people to go see more performing arts.
Part of her television special is already filmed in Venice Italy. Pictures of Giada showing the most beautiful places in Venice will be mixed in the television special with parts of the live concert that will be filmed in March 2015.
But Giada has to pay a large part of the costs of the filming herself, like the design and construction of the stage, and hiring the orchestra. Therefore she has stared a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo. People can make online a tax-deductible donation. To make things easy she made on her page at Indiegogo different gift levels. As a thank-you for the contribution she will give different Perks in return. For example for a donation of $10 you will get five never released recordings of her, for $400 she will make a Voicemail message/greeting.
