Hi, I'm Rebecca
I'm a singer/songwriter from Ontario, Canada. I grew up in the small town of Port Elgin. With the combined experiences of volunteering in Kenya, Peru, Bolivia, China and finally providing vocal workshops and sexual health education in Uganda, My Life Changed. And with the release of my brand new album, "I Don't Belong To You," I decided to merge my worlds of music and philanthropy.
My current mission is to "Defy Normal" and advocate for girls equality.
To give them back their voice. So, I'm hosting a benefit concert on October 3rd called, Defy Normal Concert. You don't even have to leave your home to participate and see the live show!
Why Defy Normal?
- 3.9 million girls are still cut every year
- 1 in 4 girls will be married off before her 18th birthday
- girls are eligible for marriage after their first menstrual cycle (as young as 9 yrs old)
- 250 million girls/women have been affected
- by 2030, 150 million more will be "cut" if we don't do something.
I have created an exciting, innovative fundraising project which the Canadian Government will match up to 5x. On Thurs. Oct 3rd, I will live-stream a concert in collaboration with Plan International. My intention is to sell 5000 $15 tickets that will raise approx. $75,000. All fundraising will be directed to 2 projects that focus on addressing FGM (female genital mutilation) and child marriage in Ethiopia and Cameroon.
How It Works
You purchase a $15 ticket and I will send you an album download and booklet via email so you can listen on your device, anytime. You'll also get FRONT ROW seats to my first ever live event where I will sing just for you! Watch from your living room, patio or bathroom. I don't care! Don't have pants? You can come in your underwear! I just want you there!
Just in case you can't make it in real time or can't tune in at 1am, the benefit concert will be available for one week (via link) to those who purchase their tickets. That means you can watch when it suits you! Also, donations will be accepted until October 7th. 20% of your ticket price will be donated and the Can Gov will match this donation up to 5x.

Will you join me in advocating for girls equality?
Let's end FGM and child marriages!
Thanks for being part of the change,
