Please consider making a gift to Inspira: The Power of the Spiritual, A Performance Project by Amanda Kemp. Amanda says: "It's a performance project that I am creating with jazz saxophonist Francis Wong, my betrothed violinist Michael Jamanis, and Matthew Armstead, a community organizer/storyteller/vocalist. Inspira is unlike anything I have done before, and it requires extended real time collaboration and discovery."
