Rebecca rocks orphans’ world
REBECCA Moore wears many hats in her day to day life, with mother, musician and songwriter being just a few.
The latest she has added is tireless fundraiser for the less fortunate.
The singer/songwriter has been touring around the country, raising money for an orphanage in Burma which is run by monks and provides education and meals to upwards of 7000 children.
“I got involved because one of my friends had visited the orphanage and I was so moved by her experience that I wanted to help out,” she said.
“I have played benefit concerts in Melbourne, Cairns and Sydney and have shows scheduled in Adelaide and Darwin.
“The opportunity to give back and be more than just a musician means a lot to me.”
Rebecca will perform a show at the Grafton Hotel tomorrow night and will have a collection tin at her gig to help her cause.
“We have a tin at every show. Audiences have really been responding to it, too,” she said.
“We have been getting at least $100 per gig and every little bit counts.”
The skilled musician describes her sound as a high-energy blend of folk and rock and tries to get the audience involved in her shows as much as possible.
“I love the romantic sound of the folk side of what I do and then the strength of the rock I find so fun and powerful. I think that they mix really well,” Rebecca said.
“I think it is pretty important to try and break down the barriers that can sometimes come up between the stage and the audience. I try to be more approachable as a person and get the audience involved by singing along with my material.”
