Her legacy in the music business & status as a respected global citizen defines who she is as a person, a woman & a true leader. Patti’s values & core beliefs align with ours.

As an artist involved in the entertainment business for over fifty five years, I have always managed my career in terms of maintaining a connection with current trends while honoring time tested strategies that lead to increased stature on my own terms. I joined with the Foundation For Social Change because this organization, with it’s approach to the use of technology to teach long standing, productive life skills connects to my vision of how we can make tangible change in ending poverty on a global level. I believe that the FSC approach that features investment in people by corporations for mutual return is brilliant and I’m honored to be the spokesperson for FSC’s very creative mission.
