Debuting in New Zealand at number one, Brooke Fraser’s sophomore project solidified her as a well-established singer and songwriter. That project “Albertine”, whose namesake was a Rwandan orphan, shed light on her passion for people and stories. Though she is a very talented artist, Fraser uses her platform as a way to advocate for the down and out that go unnoticed in the media outlets. Far from your run of the mill Debbie Downer, she inspires hope instead of the normal M.O. of leading us to believe that the world is a day away from disaster.
Her songs have a clear message of hope while simultaneously bringing into focus the raw emotion and tribulation of those who have no voice of their own. In addition to conveying this message in song, Brooke puts her money where her mouth is and is currently raising awareness and funds for charity: water. You can jump on in and help her out by visiting www.charitywater.org.
With fresh perspective on life and the gift she has been given she is retooling and ready to share some new sunlight with her most recent effort “Flags”. If her last album was any indication of things to come, you better believe that she will be back to busy in no time flat, sharing the heart song of the world.
