Houston, May 14, 2012; Kristine Mills MUSIC LLC –
On May 22, Kristine Mills, acclaimed and award-winning singer-songwriter in her native Houston releases her live recording of “Silhouette” (performed live in March on the KUFH/KUHA radio program “The Front Row”) on www.cdbaby.com/kristinemills1. All the proceeds from the download of this single will benefit the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, a Houston- based charity that provides uninsured breast cancer patients with reconstructive surgery performed by celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose. This recording features Kristine Mills, vocals and guitar, Duke Ellington Orchestra’s, Tommy “TJ” James on piano and saxophonist, Shelley Carol, as well as, the stellar Houston-based rhythm section of David Craig on bass, and Vernon Daniels on drums. Special thanks to KUFH/ KUHA for generously donating this recording of “Silhouette” for use by the Foundation.
Since its inception in Houston, Texas, in 2005, the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation, in collaboration with Silhouette Artist Cindi Rose, Celebrity Plastic Surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose and Tony Rotondo, CEO of the First Street Surgical Center, has helped breast cancer survivors, including women, men and children receive free reconstructive surgery. Its mission is to improve the emotional health of those with critical illness by providing free reconstruction, to both uninsured and under-insured individuals, of all ages and both sexes. Yearly, twelve to fifteen people receive free breast reconstruction from the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation. All the money donated goes directly to the patients, including their total hospital cost, all nurses, medicines and other doctors. Recently, the foundation has included non- human hair wigs, comfortable robes, pillows, permanent eyebrows and psychological support to those with critical sickness.
In March of 2012, the Rose Ribbon Foundation changed its name to the Holly Rose Ribbon Foundation in honor of Cindi Rose‘s sister, Holly Harwood Skolkin, who had stage 4 cancer. Holly left this world, peacefully and with courage in February of this year.
