How Kickstarter Works

kickstarter-logo-verticalWe’ve gotten a few questions about Kickstarter, and the process of “Backing this Project” so we wanted to take some time to clear things up.

Kickstarter is a way for projects like ours to be funded by the people they are created for. Whether you are a fan of Robert’s, Lev Productions’s or were touched by the concept of the album, this music was created with you in mind. With Kickstarter, people pledge any amount they want, and depending on what they give they can get incentives of different levels.

With fans coming together and each pledging what they can, hopefully we will reach our goal and spread this music out into the world.

These are some of the Frequently Asked Questions from the Kickstarter backing process

These are some of the Frequently Asked Questions from the Kickstarter backing process

If we do not reach the goal on Kickstarter:

  • No one’s credit card will be charged
  • Unfortunately no one will receive any of the incentives
  • I will not get any of the funds pledged because no payments will be processed

If we do reach the goal on Kickstarter:

  • Backers will recieve an email notification from Kickstarter announcing our success
  • Credit cards will be charged for the amount pledged, and processed securely through Amazon. This process begins October 1st.
  • My team will send surveys to backers to get information regarding where to send/ship incentives

If you still have questions, feel free to contact us at lullabiesfromtheheart@gmail.com and we will do anything we can to help.

I Hope You Dance – A Song of Life

When you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance

When you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance

“I Hope You Dance” – made famous by LeeAnn Womack – is a beautiful reminder that we need to take time to see the beauty in our lives and appreciate the opportunities that we have. Robert had performed this song at some of his shows, and immediately suggested it for Lullabies from the Heart. This track features the Twin Cities vocalist, Aimée Lee.

“I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance….I hope you dance”

Robert chose this song because it reminds us to take the time to dance – garden, sing, play, love – because “to be busy and to work hard and long is the epidemic of our world, and we need to take the time to enjoy life in whatever way we can.

On September 21st, Rafael chose to play “I Hope You Dance” on KFAI’s “A Great Blend of Watercolors.” Listen to Robert explain why he chose the song, and hear the track itself!

For All We Know – A Song of Appreciation

For All We Know

“For all we know, we may never meet again.
Before you go make this moment sweet again.
We won’t say goodnight until the last minute
I’ll hold out my hand and my heart will be in it.”

When thinking of songs that can bring a sense of peace and calm, Robert suggested “For All We Know” by Donny Hathaway. To Robert, this song is about living every moment like it may be our last and Robert sings “For All We Know” with everything he has.

Robert said that “For All We Know” reminds him that life is short. He said, “We need to celebrate the ones we love, recognizing that tomorrow is not promised. We only have the moments we are given. Love hard! Play hard! Cry hard! I may never see you again.”

On September 21st, “For All We Know” from Lullabies from the Heart with Robert Robinson was heard for the first time during an exclusive interview with The Grand Deeva, Dee Henry Williams on the Twin Cities radio station, KFAI. 

Hear Robert and Rafael’s interview on KFAI here:

Robert and Rafael Forbush (Executive Producer) told the story behind the project and each chose a track from the album to play on the air. Robert chose “For All We Know” and dedicated it to a dear friend of his who had passed away earlier that morning.

What is Kickstarter, anyways?

We’ve been talking a lot about Kickstarter for the past few days, because our project Lullabies from the Heart with Robert Robinson is launching a Kickstarter in JUST 2 DAYS!

Kickstarter is a way for fans to connect directly with the projects that are interesting to them. By pledging, individuals can help creative projects get off the ground in exchange for early releases, final copies of the project and extra incentives offered only to those who pledge.

All you have to do is become a “backer” with Kickstarter, and you can fund creative projects from all over the world. You can choose what level you want to give at, and each level has a special gift of gratitude.

After you pledge, share it with your world! Tell everyone you know about the project you believe in, because if we don’t reach our $20,000 goal on Kickstarter.com, we don’t get any of the money that is pledged to us, and you don’t get any of the fabulous incentives you were promised.

Kickstarter is all about crowd-sourced funding, where people from different parts of life all come together to make someone’s dream become possible.
