On Thursday, February 28, 16-year-old singer/songwriter Franki Moscato will premiere her new music video “Be Kind” at the Menominee Nation Arena. The video promotes suicide awareness in our community.
The free, community gathering will also feature a showing of her music video, “I Will Rise”, which was recorded with hundreds of community volunteers by Film Director Steven Heil.
The event will run from 6pm – 8pm.
Suicide awareness is a platform that Moscato has promoted from a young age after her own school struggles. Much of her original music contains verses that advocate healing from mental hardships.
Moscato will be joined by Community For Hope to raise money that
will directly elevate suicide prevention education in the surrounding area.
“I believe that banding together as one family is a positive step toward ending this disease”, said Moscato.
She will also debut her latest single called “Tightrope”, which was recorded with music producers Doug DeAngelis and Erin Boehme. The song raises hope toward enduring troublesome thoughts by never looking down.
The event also marks Franki’s 100th show as a music performer, with a number of local musicians joining her on stage for the event.
The storyline of the music video for Mascoto’s original song, “I Will Rise”, is about a young girl who optimistically tries to improve the culture of her community by giving away red T-shirts that read, “BE KIND”. Moscato is hoping that all of the volunteers that attended the filming will join her again at this event wearing their “BE KIND” shirts.
