She is Beautiful Event at the Shops at Marketplace

September 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

An evening of divinely inspired connections, experiences, awareness, hope and unconditional love honoring and supporting the many beautiful souls who are bravely battling mental illness. This fundraising night is for SHE…

The Shops at Marketplace retail-tainment space will be thoughtfully transformed into a peaceful, serene Autumn inspired outdoor venue and experience featuring the beautiful music and artistry of Kimya Diggs…

With influences spanning many genres, Kimaya Diggs melds the folky acrobatics of Joni Mitchell, the jazz stylings of Ella Fitzgerald, the catchy soul of Lianne LaHavas, and yet has something you can’t quite put your finger on that makes her entirely unique. Her mastery of her voice is the focal point of each performance, and a transfixing experience. Kimaya grew up singing jazz, folk, and opera, and has toured the world teaching and performing music in 21 distinct international folk styles in 27 different languages. Her performances are half-song, half-story, and always captivating and emotional. She is a multi-instrumentalist, trained in classical piano and cello, and accompanying herself on guitar and ukulele. Her love for creative collaboration runs deep, as a contributor to plays, operas, podcasts, recordings, and TV shows as writer, librettist, lyricist, songwriter, and devising artist. She holds a BA in creative writing from Swarthmore College, where her studies also centered around classical voice performance.

Our very special ticketed experience for SHE IS BEAUTIFUL will include a delicious and refreshing Autumn inspired signature cocktail or mocktail crafted by women owned NOSH. Our lovely and kind guests will also experience NOSH’s gorgeous farm to table appetizer boards along with a few delicious passed tapas offerings. NOSH will be open serving a limited menu and libations for purchase as well…

Our intentions are pure…
This experience was inspired by the pain and heartache of the many lives and families affected by depression and mental illness. SHE IS BEAUTIFUL is in honor of the many amazing human beings who believed the only way to remove their pain was suicide. This night is especially dedicated to the memory and love of those beautiful souls…

This is your gentle nudge loves…
We would be most humbled and honored and truly hope you will make a special effort to be present for our special evening — SHE IS BEAUTIFUL — donations will be made to local support organizations of NAMI & MHA.

Thank you beautiful one…
