"Musicians Celebrate with the Community"

Musicians Celebrate with the Community
By: Elizabeth Hodge

The Legacy band and several volunteer artists performed on the Trace in an attempt to raise spirits and reach out to the community.

With their listeners humming along, local musicians hosted a night of music and celebration at the St. Tammany Trace in an attempt to rejuvenate the community and lift the spirits of those still reeling from Hurricane Katrina.

”This is a time of renewal and rejoicing. Music is rejoicing in itself, and we want to share it with the community,” said Bernie Cyrus, a local musician and one of the original board members of Legacy Music, which staged the performance Friday night in conjunction with the St. Tammany Arts Commission.

”It all started with an idea by Willie Paretti, Chair of the Legacy Board, who wanted to celebrate all the things we [the community] have been through in the last year,” said Robin Rorie, President and Founder of Legacy Music, L.L.C., a non-profit, faith-based organization.

Legacy turned to the St. Tammany Arts Commission for help organizing and promoting the “uplifting and family-oriented” event that was recorded by Channel 10, Access St. Tammany, and will air this upcoming weekend, Dana Lafonta, Arts Coordinator, said.

”Our mission is to change the world one song at a time,” Rorie said and they strive for this day-in-and-day-out in three ways: building artists, mentoring and non-profit partner projects.

With the development of the artists and musicians being the main goal, Legacy believes in finding “ways to provide the tools and guidance they need to be successful,” Rorie said. This is accomplished through encouraging lessons and focusing on the positive, uplifting aspects of faith.

”I felt the need to start something that would benefit the artists and pay them more money for their work,” Rorie said, explaining that many modern production companies make money off of the artists, while the artists don’t make substantial incomes and feel mistreated.

As a non-profit organization, Legacy relies heavily on grants and donations and, with no investors to pay back, more money returns to the artists from CD sales.

”I believe our artists feel it is a blessing that they can be involved in the organization and help change lives and bring people in [through their music],” said David Heintz, Project Manager and co-producer at Legacy. “Every one of these artists you saw on stage volunteered their time. They chose to be here. It provides them with an outlet for their songs and a chance to be involved with the community.”

Kambri Williams, one of the featured artists at the event, said, “We came here tonight to help bring the community back together after Katrina and show people that we care.”

Williams said she feels her participation with Legacy has been a blessing and that she “knew it was God that brought me to them.”

”Legacy really is about the artist and the musician,” Rorie said. “We spend a lot of time developing the artists, not only as singers, but as songwriters too.”

Legacy offers XPM, or "Experiencing Music," classes for aspiring musicians of any age. These classes act as VIP passes to special workshops and lessons provided in the area. They focus on helping the students understand the process of recording, organizing jam sessions, working with other musicians, and bringing the actual components of music together.

”We try to provide any tools we can to make them reach their full potential and be successful,” Rorie said.

"Coming Up For Air" CD Album
"Live Without You" CD Single



As a young girl, I had the privilege to be raised in a christian home. My parents would take my siblings and I to every church event. As time went on, my father felt a strong calling to start a church called "Springs Of Life." Springs of Life is where I first started to sing. Since then, God has opened doors for me to sing at different venues. I admit that being a pastor's daughter and leading worship every Sunday was a bit stressful. Some people think that Pastors' homes are suppose to be perfect but we are like everyone else. We all are in desperate need of a Savior. One of the most important things that God has taught me is to stay humble. After all, He is the one who gives us our talents. Without Him, we are nothing. He is the one who will pick us up when we fall. He will dry our tears away, and will love us unconditionally, no matter what we have done. He is always willing to forgive. Since I started singing God has shown me to "dream big!" He wants the ultimate best for His children. He wants us to think "outside the box." My passion and my dream is to reach the WORLD for Christ thru my singing. I don't want to settle for less. I want to leave a legacy.
