Renowned musician Rachelle Ferrell is apparently dealing with a variety of difficulties and health challenges, and her friends are coming together to assist her.
Due to unspecified "health, wellness, and life-related hardships," a campaign was started for the 62-year-old jazz vocalist. Fans and supporters can donate to the Rachelle Ferrell Fund through the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.
"If you've been touched by her 30-plus years of blessings or been a part of the musical family she shared a meaningful and purposeful life with, please consider donating here today," reads a note on the website. Your prayers are acknowledged, appreciated, and welcomed.
Toni Scruggs, a vocal producer, also posted information about the event on Instagram. Currently, Rachelle's care is being provided by individuals other than herself, and these individuals need assistance. I have no doubt that we can as her fanbase," Scruggs stated.
"We have appreciated her skills, music, stories, and commitment to art and mankind in general. By making a financial contribution, I believe we can indicate how much we care about and support her. The link is in my bio and is posted below. If you can, please provide a hand," Scruggs urged.
According to the website, the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund "offers financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry employees who are struggling to make ends meet while facing physical or mental health issues, disability, or age-related problems."
According to BET.com, Farrell self-released her self-titled U.S. debut album in 1992 and is renowned for her six-octave range. The smash track "Nothing Has Ever Felt Like This" (with Will Downing) was on the album, which was given a gold certification. The Philadelphia native began her career singing backup vocals for Lou Rawls, Patti LaBelle, Vanessa Williams, and George Duke.
