ACTIVISM & OUTREACH

Freedove says she desires to continually make music to uplift, to heal, to incite dialogue, and mostly, to bring joy and hope to listeners. “I believe that every situation provides an opportunity to choose fear or faith, to grow, discover and learn. Life is a beautiful gift, and I’m blessed to be a vessel that is privileged to share the gift of music with others.” But she doesn’t just limit her sharing to the stage.

Freedove has volunteered at the Francis Residence in Brooklyn, NY, a transitional home for young homeless women and their infants, held positive living workshops mentoring teens and young adults at Little Flowers Developmental Center and ministered at NY’s Rikers Island Prison Complex with Stepping Stones Ministry.

While on a tour of Russia IN 2012, Freedove carried her humanitarian spirit abroad, sharing with local students in song and message. “The shows, the audiences were great! But I have to say, laughing, sharing and connecting with those kids, was the highlight of my trip.”

In Dec 2011, Fleet For Peace Radio released their first CD compilation, ‘Listen Up’ which features Freedove’s inspirational single ‘Rise.’ 100% of the monies raised from the sales of the “ListenUP” CD will be donated to the new “Eyes of Faith” National In-House Deliverance Women’s Ministry, which helps deliver women from drug and alcohol abuse and elicit lifestyles.

To commemorate the 7 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Freedove re-released her single ‘The One’, a message of hope for the world, written by Freedove and produced by Gil Small of Groove City Productions. “There is still a lot that needs to be done and some are still struggling daily to put their lives back together in New Orleans and surrounding areas, and for them, a little help goes a long way.” All proceeds from the sale of ‘The One’ go to local charity and Gulf relief efforts. Freedove’s music can be found on her website, www.freedove.com, iTunes, Spotify and digital retailers worldwide.
