Support Federation on Sept. 1 - Order Deborah Silver’s New “The Gold Standards” CD

Everyone is invited to mark their calendars for Thursday, September 1, when they can support the community by purchasing Deborah Silver’s newest CD or download, The Gold Standards, on iTunes or Amazon at deborahsilvermusic.com. Deborah -- Boca Raton’s own talented singer and recording artist -- is donating 100 percent of all net proceeds from her sales on September 1 to the 2017 Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County Annual Campaign to meet vital human needs.

The Gold Standards, produced by music industry legend Steve Tyrell, features classic Great American Songbook hits with musical direction by renowned arranger Alan Broadbent. The CD was awarded “Legend to be Album” by Legends Radio 100.3 FM, as their pick for album of the year by a newcomer. Hit standards on this album include “I’ve Got a Crush on You,” a duet with two-time Grammy award winner Jack Jones (of Love Boat theme song fame), and “The Glory of Love,” featuring jazz diva Ann Hampton Callaway. Everyone is welcome to visit deborahsilvermusic.com/audio/deborahsilver_crush.mp3 and listen to “I’ve Got a Crush on You.”

Deborah Silver is known for her benefit concerts and widespread philanthropy in the Jewish community and beyond. She and her husband recently funded the Deborah and Larry D. Silver Center for Jewish Engagement, a Division of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. The Silvers have a long history of giving, including building a JAFCO home, supporting Jewish education at Donna Klein Jewish Academy, funding medical research, aiding hurricane victims, supporting terminally ill children and sponsoring a facility for homeless women and children. Deborah and her daughter Madison recently founded slamALS.org, the national campaign to raise funds for a cure for ALS.

Those ordering a CD or download for only $3.49 are in for a treat. Among the high-powered testimonials are:

"When Deborah Silver takes over a mike, she doesn't just visit the stage, she owns it! Trust me. She's a thrill, a swinging show-biz whirlwind...and a bargain at any price!" -- Rex Reed, New York Observer

"If you've heard Ms. Silver before, you know how much fun it is to spend time with her -- musically, I mean. If she's new to you, then let me introduce you to your new best friend." -- Will Friedwald, author and music critic, The Wall Street Journal
