Coachella Valley Weekly had a quick chat with the “Queen of Desert Hearts” herself, Jesika Von Rabbit, about the event and her participation.
Jesika: “I became involved in the event Music Heals because my bandmate, Lee Joseph (Dionysus Records) contacted Jason Nutter about teaming up on a show idea. Music Heals is Jason’s foundation and he is a friend. I thought it sounded like a fantastic idea.”
CVW: You’re raising money to help provide instruments for special needs children. Have you seen the power of music help others who have a disability?
Jesika: “Music is a great physical and mental stimulant and can play such a positive role in someone’s life. Art and music is of the utmost importance to someone with or without disabilities and should always be accessible. We are happy to help assist these children in their musical pursuits.”
CVW: What should we expect from Jesika Von Rabbit and all the other artists performing?
Jesika: “There will be a great pool of talent on Friday night and we are psyched to play in the heart of Palm Springs, I love the town and will of course be performing my new song Palm Springs Livin’, off my latest album DESSERT ROCK.”
