O pportunities for
M usicians and
We are writing to you about a situation that is becoming far too familiar – a friend in need with nowhere to turn. We all know people who could use a hand and Miss Lavelle White, an international music icon, is one of them.
Lavelle has had a career singing, writing music, and touring the world, bringing joy to music lovers everywhere. Now at 83, she needs our help.
Earlier this year she was invited to move to Louisiana to be with her cousin who unfortunately recently passed away. She moved back to Austin with only a few possessions in storage and basically nothing else. She still performs when she can, but local gigs are limited and she cannot tour.
A group of concerned women have formed a non-profit corporation to assist Lavelle with her rent. We have found a lovely apartment for her. Perhaps in the future we can help other older musicians with their housing issues. We have selected the name “Housing Opportunities for Musicians and Entertainers” or HOME.
We are asking you to donate to HOME to join us in assisting Miss Lavelle with her rent and possibly other expenses. A contribution in any amount would be much appreciated. Feel free to forward this message to anyone you think would join us in helping out.

On behalf of Miss Lavelle White, thank you so very much.
