Since appearing on "The Glee Project", so many opportunities have opened up for us, both in acting and in music; and in response to this overwhelming amount of support and interest in our work, both from within the industry and our fans, we decided to put on "All of the Lights"--a night at The Roxy, featuring the four of us: Nellie Veitenheimer, Michael Weisman Cameron Mitchell and Abraham Lim.
On December 9th, 2012, the four of us will be sharing the music we have been working on an individual basis with all of you, debuting lots of new music that have been unreleased as of now. By playing our music for you--our family, friends, and fans--we hope to not only place another very significant footprint on our careers, but to have a great night sharing our journeys with all of you.
"All of the Lights" is the name of our show because it's a night in the heart of Los Angeles; and it will be by, and for, all of you--the lights that illuminate our worlds. Let's light up the Roxy on December 9th and share a night that we'll never forget.
What We Need & What You Get
As we learned very quickly on, producing a show of this magnitude is an ambitious and costly feat. It also takes a lot of hands and feet to get a show like this running. After calculating our costs and budget, we decided that we need approximately $3500 to produce this show. The breakdown is as follows:
- Lighting equipment
- Staging equipment
- Rehearsal studio rentals
- Talent fees (i.e. live musicians, photography, videography)
- The Roxy rental fees
- Other miscellaneous costs
In return for your generous hand in making this show happen, we've come up with several perks that we hope will get you excited in making this show a reality! A mention in our show acknowledgments, a signed copy of our event poster from the four of us, dinner and soundcheck with all of us and more! Read more about them out in the "Perks" section!
If we fail to achieve our goal of $3500, we have decided to forego the funding altogether and refund your money. However, with your help and support, we wholeheartedly believe that $3500 is a very tangible goal, so we ask that you join us in achieving this endeavor together.
Other Ways You Can Help
I know that not all of you have the money to contribute to our campaign, but that doesn't mean that you still can't help! Be sure to use the SHARE tools on this Indiegogo campaign to get the word our via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or any other social media. Anything helps! Whatever your contribution is to this campaign, we thank YOU.
It's going to be one hell of a show and we hope to see you there! Thank you for being all of the lights in our lives that make what we do so enjoyable and worthwhile. We love you all. X

UPDATE (11/4/2012): WE WILL BE DONATING A PORTION OF ANY PROCEEDS EXCEEDING OUR GOAL OF $3500 TO THE TREVOR PROJECT AND AMERICAN RED CROSS!
A lot of you have also expressed interest in still wanting to purchase some perks of our Indiegogo campaign—and we would love that! Our Indiegogo campaign is open for 22 more days, so you are free to do so until then. However, I have decided to allocate portions of any funds we raise above our goal of $3500 to support the following causes and organizations:
- American Red Cross and its efforts to help victims of Hurricane Sandy
- The Trevor Project: I have a special place in my heart for The Trevor Project and have decided to donate a portion of our proceeds to lend our hand in providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention to LGBQT youth
WIth that being said, I would love it if we continued to raise funds on our Indiegogo campaign. We would love to send our posters, have Skype calls, have dinner with you all and spend an awesome day together with you guys. Hurricane Sandy may have passed, but its aftermath is still very real. Bullying and crises amongst LGBTQ youth are very real. So let’s continue on in not just making a show happen, but bringing all of our lights into the world one person, home, and community at a time.
