Sweet Honey in the Rock Launches $35,000 Indiegogo Campaign

For 40th Anniversary “Forty & Fierce” Show Production and Tour

New York, NY, September 11, 2013 – SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK, the venerable and Grammy nominated a cappella ensemble has announced the launch of their first ever fan driven funding endeavor with Indiegogo. The Indiegogo campaign target goal is to raise $35,000. The funds will be used to offset production costs for SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK’S 40TH ANNIVERSARY: FORTY & FIERCE show and tour which will be celebrated from January 2014 – January 2015.

“We did a lot of talking, soul-searching, and brainstorming and ultimately felt that the independent spirit that has fueled all our artistic endeavors and been the driving force to our longevity couldn’t be better served than by partnering with our fans and Indiegogo on this milestone celebration and venture,” stated Sweet Honey’s Carol Maillard.

Sweet Honey’s “FORTY & FIERCE” show will be the group’s most ambitious and adventurous live performance presentation to date. It will be their first scripted show, helmed by noted Director/Choreographer Dianne McIntyre. It will feature several new original compositions, medley’s comprised of some of their most popular songs, special guest musicians and vocalists, and intimate personal stories by each member that will be woven into a retrospective look at their incredible journey over the past four decades.

The group also intends to make it their most technically advanced show as well. It will feature theatrical designed and extensive lighting, a visual fusion of archival film/video and still images, newly created performance costumes, and special staging/set components.

The Indiegogo funds will be dedicated entirely to covering the production costs for the show, which is being independently produced by their company, SHE-ROCKS 5 Productions. The group is currently in the embryonic creative and development process, but will kick-off their anniversary year with performances at UC Berkeley’s Zellerbach Auditorium, February 12th, the Music Center at Strathmore in Washington, DC., March 1st, and the prestigious “Celebrity Series in Boston” at Symphony Hall on March 2nd. They are also planning a FORTY & FIERCE television special and a commemorative CD comprised of forty of the most popular songs they’ve recorded and released on twenty-three CD’s since their inception.

To Celebrate its 9th Anniversary, Luxury Travel Ltd . Reveals the Successful Story of Vietnam’s First Luxury Travel and Tour Operator

“Besides having a passion for travelling, reading, walking and golf, I love to seek luxury,” admits Pham Ha, the CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.

Hanoi, Vietnam, May 14, 2013 – “Besides having a passion for travelling, reading, walking and golf, I love to seek luxury,” admits Pham Ha, the CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com).

He’s not alone. As Vietnam’s economy strengthens, the tourism industry is inevitably expanding its own horizons. Once considered as more of a backpacker destination, now with growing high-end options, Vietnam is attracting a different kind of tourist.

Options might still be considered limited and infrastructure below international standards. But that’s where Ha’s company steps in. On a mission to promote the luxurious side of Vietnam, Ha hopes to coax more high-end travelers and businesspeople to the country.

But that doesn’t mean just booking five-star hotels and fancy dinners for a whirlwind tour along Vietnam’s coastline. He admits he’s haunted by one former clients’ indifferent dismissal of Vietnam as “beautiful but boring,” so his company goes the whole nine yards to ensure customers have the holiday of a lifetime.

The philosophy of Luxury Travel (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) is to find top quality services, unique experiences and sophistication and create perfect packages for the most discerning of travellers. Ha knows that to have a dream vacation the traveller must experience pleasure, comfort and total satisfaction.

Whether the client wants to hide in the tropical jungle, kick back on the beach, discover Vietnam’s culinary delights, trek to a hill tribe village or relax in style in a luxury vacation villa, Luxury Travel Vietnam will come up with the goods – minimizing on travel time and maximizing experiences.

“Simply envision any vacation experience you want, name it, and we will deliver it in style – that’s Luxury Travel,” he stresses.

As a child, Ha had always dreamed of travelling around the world. After graduating from Hanoi Teachers’ Training College and National Economics University, Ha worked as a teacher but soon wanderlust set in and he quit teaching to take a job as a tour guide, tour operator, PR, sales and marketing man.

After 12 years in the industry, Pham Ha found his own business in 2004 providing luxury tours in Vietnam. Besides providing sightseeing tours, Luxury Travel also arranges accommodation, airport transfers, regional flights, train tickets, visas, superior guides and other logistics in advance. The company guides speak Vietnamese, Chinese, English, French and German and are selected for their open-mindedness, motivation and enthusiasm.

“It may be my fate. Firstly, I do this because I want to satisfy my passion to discover,” says Ha. “But it’s also my pleasure to introduce the beauty of Vietnam to foreigners.” To turn a private passion into a tourist business, Pham Ha had to be patient.

“In the beginning, I had 12 years of work experience but not so much money!” says Ha with a smile.

Despite his meager savings of $1,000, Ha was determined to pursue his dream. Now four years later, his company employs 60 luxury travel advisors and top guides, owns a fleet of Mercedes and has offices in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang and management offices in South East Asia.

Each of the guides must be an expert traveler and know how to make the client’s travel experience truly special, truly hassle-free, and truly enriching.

“I love my country and its destinations, and I do my best to make sure that my customers feel the same way,” says Ha.

Ha aims to introduce a contemporary Vietnam – a country that is young, dynamic and exotic. Beyond the cyclos, pho and ao dai, Vietnam is gaining a reputation for its breathtaking beaches, luxurious resorts and golf courses.

“It’s not difficult to find luxury hotels. Now is the time for upscale travelers and MICE to come to Vietnam,” says Ha.

At Ha’s office, there is a visitors’ book which is filled with entries by satisfied customers.

“We recently returned from our wonderful 15 day journey to Vietnam and Cambodia arranged by Luxury Travel Vietnam,” writes Pamela Solvang. “We can’t thank you enough for providing such an excellent travel experience for us from start to finish. The three of us on this trip have all traveled extensively, all around the world. We have used the best luxury travel companies in the US and elsewhere and can attest that Luxury Travel provides excellent services!”

Attention to detail sums up Ha’s approach very well. He knows high-end travelers don’t settle for below standard services, even if Vietnam is still a developing country, tours must run smoothly.

As Vietnam continues to assert its presence on the world stage, the number of visitors is surging and Ha is confidently waiting, ready to accommodate those who are looking to bask in the lap of luxury.
