Photo Flash: STRONGER TOGETHER: A MUSICAL CELEBRATION OF UNITY Raises Money for ACLU

"Stronger Together: A Musical Celebration Of Unity", held on the coldest night of the year at The West End in New York City, brought together dozens of artists and raised hundreds of dollars for the American Civil Liberties Union.

Like countless others, Tina Jensen the creator and producer of the event, moved to NYC to seek a freedom of expression she couldn't experience in small-town America. In light of the recent election, Jensen was afraid the U.S. could once again be heading down a dangerous path. Having worked tirelessly for years performing across the country in support of LGBT rights and body positivity, Jensen realized she could call on her diverse family of artists and that together they could raise awareness for an organization that has been supporting people for almost 100 years.

With more than one million members, activists, and advocates, the ACLU serves as the nation's guardian of liberty -- working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend the individual rights and liberties promised by the Constitution and the laws of the United States. They have fought to guarantee full equality for LGBT people, establish new privacy protections in the digital age of widespread government surveillance, end mass incarceration, and preserve both voting and abortion rights.

Jensen, who recently returned to the stage for the first time since the birth of her son, producEd Stronger Together with fellow artists Alex Gonzalez and technical advisor Julianna Rusakiewicz.

Hosted by Alex Gonzales, the evening included performances by recording artists Mila Jam, Emma Craig, Chris Flowers, Megan Allen, Jennifer Fouche (Sista's: The Musical), Noland King (Love On The Rocks), Sasha Renee (The Original Glamazon), Kathryn McCreary (Phantom Of The Opera), Vicky Modica (Valentine Follies), Kate Biernat, Kalli Siringas (Daughter Of The Waves), Priscilla Flowers (Shear Madness), Justin Van Pelt (Valentine Follies) Kirsten Heibert , Esteban Carmona and Brittany Dorazio from the Happy Harmony Movement, and creator Tina Jensen (Sista's: The Musical) with accompanist Scott Stein. The event was documented by JD Urban from The Everyday People Project.

Jensen plans to continue this series further raising awareness for other organizations in need.
