Shine for Kim Collins

This is a ONCE IN A LIFETIME opportunity to HAND PICK your BAND and take them into one of NASHVILLE’S TOP STUDIOSAll while helping one of your fellow musicians and NASHVILLE ICONS.

Kim Collins is a soulful singer, multi-instrumentalist and well respected songwriter who fronts the bands, “The Smoking Flowers” and “Kim’s Fable”. Kim was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and has undergone surgery to remove the tumors. As it stands today, her prognosis is good, but the medical bills and ongoing treatments astronomically expensive. Her friends and fellow musicians have joined together to donate their time and talents to help raise money for her during this battle.
