October 5th, 2013. Created and directed by Gina Starbuck.
Art4life itself is an annual charity event founded by Gina Starbuck in honor of her father, who she lost to cancer. For 7 years, the event has raised funds and awareness for both the American Cancers Society and, more recently, St. Jude Children's Hospital. Gina is a believer that we are given gifts to share them. To inspire and elevate each other, and help those in need. Over the years, Art4life has had celebrity guest hosts and performers including Adam Lambert, the Cast of Glee, cast members of Wicked, Michael Urie from Ugly Betty, recording artist Mateo, celebrity host and producer, Quddus Phillipe, Alexis Carra of Mixology, cast members of Dancing With the Stars, So You Think You can Dance?, and more.
In 2013, miss Starbuck decided to direct and choreograph the show in its entirety with a few guest artists. Art4life Unplugged was a way to share most of the work that was created for Art4life 7 in a more intimate setting... No frills, just our hearts. The intention for Art4life is that the vibration of love around this work is so high, that by simply watching these videos, attending an event, donating, etc... You receive healing. May this work open your heart, elevate your mind, and inspire you beyond words!
