200+ Friends, Family, Local Abolitionists, Film-makers, Musicians, Gov Officials, News Crews came to the Sweet Princess Project Launch Event last Tuesday evening at the Gateway Film Center. It was a heavy, yet hopeful evening Hosted by Johnny DiLoretto with Music by Heather Evans (me) and Cellist Andrew Gordon-Seifert & Jason Turner. We heard from Speakers Connie Anderson (Intervarsity) & Nicole Bromley (OneVOICE) and watched the videos produced by the Sweet Princess team including a moving Documentary Short: 'This Nightmare Will End', Behind the Scenes 'Making Of' video and the 'Sweet Princess' Music Video. Director Rick Green and I also shared about the project and why we wanted to do it. Just an incredible evening!
One of the most wonderful feelings was seeing this 'Passion Project' that everyone had been working on TIRELESSLY for the last few months blown up on a 40ft screen and to look around and see the reactions on the faces of the people watching. Seeing tears stream down faces and anger in people's eyes as they watched the saddening and frightful reality of millions of women, men and children being trafficked, to see hearts breaking and being moved to hopefully be moved enough to action. That was our hope.
We are excited to see The Sweet Princess Project has gotten a bit of Media attention over the last few weeks. Here are the links to the stories:

We will be showing the Sweet Princess Music Video at the Central Ohio Rescue and Restore Coalition's Annual Conference at the end of June and more exciting things are in motion for the Sweet Princess Project!
This Nightmare WILL end, but it takes us being heart broken enough to DO something! To realize she/he is someone's daughter or son and that in reality it could be our daughter or son.
