It’s that point of 12 months once more… the month of latest beginnings, reflection, renewed hope and naturally, the checklist of resolutions. Admittedly, I’m relieved that the vacations are previous us. For some purpose, greater than ever, the vacations had a frenetic vitality about them. So, I’m actually embracing the mantra of a peaceable new 12 months and persevering with my annual household custom of writing down resolutions. I’ll spare you my 2023 resolutions, however I definitely hope that we’re all impressed to unfold extra kindness this 12 months. Kindness by no means goes out of fashion and our world wants it greater than ever.
With that ethos entrance and heart, award-winning singer, songwriter, dancer, actress, philanthropist and mega social influencer Montana Tucker will headline the Live performance-4-Kindness this Sunday, Jan. 15 at Florida Atlantic College. A Boca Raton native, Tucker makes use of her platform, with a complete attain of 14 million followers, to empower and encourage from each angle. “We’d like everybody to carry out their mates, households and colleagues, from youth, dad and mom and grandparents to Gen Zers, Millenials and Child Boomers to hitch us, so collectively we will resonate acceptance, kindness and light-weight,” says Tucker, who has labored with a powerful roster of A-list stars.
The brainchild of longtime FAU supporters and neighborhood cheerleaders Bonnie and Jon Kaye, the Live performance-4-Kindness can also be bringing collectively different internationally-renowned artists in addition to native abilities to the stage.

One thing else that by no means goes out of fashion is giving again. Consistent with Tucker’s not too long ago launched “Learn how to By no means Overlook” Holocaust training docuseries for the TikTok Era, the proceeds from the live performance will profit the long run Kurt and Marilyn Wallach Holocaust and Jewish Research constructing at FAU’s Dorothy F. Schmidt School of Arts and Letters. “FAU is honored to have Montana and mates carry their expertise and attain to our campus, as we share the idea that training is our greatest hope towards hatred in constructing a greater world for all,” conveys Michael Horswell, Ph.D., Dean of the Dorothy F. Schmidt School of Arts and Letters.
I’m trying ahead to bringing my son to this live performance and fairly frankly, it’s already inspiring me to sprinkle extra random acts of kindness all through 2023 (and past). In spite of everything, many small variety gestures collectively make a huge impact on each the person and collective ranges. Really, I can’t consider a greater approach to kickstart the brand new 12 months with such positivity, love and inclusivity.
