I REMEMBER NICOLE: A Call to Action through Song A Project of Other Projects

Filmmakers Renee Sotile & Mary Jo Godges are seeking sponsors, endorsements, advocates and donations for the music video production, and distribution of I REMEMBER NICOLE: A GLOBAL ANTHEM RECLAIMING POWER OVER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.

(Watch promo video above to hear the song)

I REMEMBER NICOLE empowers victims of domestic violence to remove themselves from the cycle of abuse and inspires them to reach out for help. Music has an influence and reach that leaves lasting impressions.

Much like the #MeToo movement has created awareness of women victimized by sexual violence, I REMEMBER NICOLE gives hope for survivors worldwide that their voices can and will be heard.

This poignant song inspired by Nicole Brown, "Nicole," a metaphor for a highly publicized domestic violence victim, raises awareness about the epidemic of domestic violence and the importance of self-care. It promotes empathy and attitude changes towards how we view domestic violence in society.

I REMEMBER NICOLE rises up with passion and strength! It is a call for all women to unify and empower everyone to stand against domestic violence.

PERFORMERS

A powerhouse ballad delivers a powerful message. American Idol, Hollie Cavanagh and Melodye Perry (Niece of legend Darlene Love) bring a resonating voice to the voiceless. Combining heart and soul in this breakout duet. Raising awareness while raising the roof!

CHORUS:

I WILL FREE MYSELF, BELIEVE IN MYSELF
I WILL KEEP MYSELF SAFE AND WHOLE
I WILL LOVE MYSELF, REACH OUT FOR HELP
THIS IS WHAT I KNOW, I REMEMBER NICOLE


GOAL

To partner with advocacy groups and use I REMEMBER NICOLE as a tool / adopt the song as part of their violence against women awareness mission.


"There are no words to express what I am feeling right now. It is amazing how Nicole touches lives and she's never forgotten! To me, she was my sister. But, too many, she saved their lives. I would love to help you support this video. This is absolutely beautiful, breathtaking and absolutely mind-blowing! Thank you so much for loving my sister. There are absolutely no words to express what I'm feeling. And, I mean that in a good positive loving way."

Huge Hugs --TANYA BROWN (Nicole Brown's sister)

We are independent documentary filmmakers. Closest to our hearts is our film on NASA's first Teacher in Space, Christa McAuliffe who died aboard Space Shuttle Challenger in 1986. We were honored to have Susan Sarandon narrate and Carly Simon write a song for our award-winning documentary, Christa McAuliffe: Reach for the Stars.

Their only request was that the film reach students across the country. Mission Accomplished!

Years after premiering on CNN, Christa McAuliffe: Reach for the Stars is still relevant. The film screens at science centers, libraries, used as a teaching tool in classrooms, written about in books, and forever a part of history–we will do the same with I REMEMBER NICOLE.

Thank you. Onward & Upward!
