VIDEO: Carly Henley CD Release Party An Emotional Event For Family, Friends
On Thursday night (June 2nd), there was a special CD release party at Seattle’s Showbox Theater that also served as a tribute to the late Carly Henley, a one-time area resident who committed suicide last fall (read our previous, extensive coverage here).
Henley, a very popular young woman whose family lives in Normandy Park, was an aspiring singer and songwriter, and was also a member of the Delta Gamma sorority at the University of Washington.
Carly worked at many Burien businesses, including Angelo’s, and most recently, 909 Coffee & Wine, where she worked last summer.
The tribute CD was funded by money that was raised on the website Kickstarter.com, and was recorded by family members and friends in an effort to preserve Carly’s music.
Proceeds from the recording, as well as book and shirt sales will benefit the Rain City Rock Camp for Girls, which assists 8-16-year old girls in learning leadership and self-esteem skills through music.
Our friends at KING5 did a video story on the event, that we were unfortunately unable to attend:
