Announcing the Kelly Nicole Foundation’s annual benefit Ignite This World 18:
Kelly Nicole was a music prodigy and trauma survivor. Her eating disorder prevented her from releasing her album in her lifetime, so The Kelly Nicole Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit was created by her family and friends to honor her talent and benefit trauma survivors and people with eating disorders. Her posthumous debut Hate Becoming, is available on iTunes and Spotify and is inspiring other survivors around the world.
