Americana Singer Coco O’Connor Partners with National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA) with Intimate Discussion and Performance
Nashville, Tenn. – Critically-acclaimed Americana artist Coco O’Connor is taking a stand against violence with a special appearance later this week. The songstress will appear this Friday (April 23) as part of the National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA) National Conference. The appearance will occur in conjunction with Crime Victims’ Rights Week, which is April 18-24. During the virtual 5K kickoff discussion, Coco will tell her story, along with performing an empowering song. Anyone looking to learn more or join the discussion can register online HERE.
As part of the event, Coco will also conduct a Q&A, giving helpful tips on how she has managed to deal with the fallout and PTSD associated with her story. Perhaps the most full-circle moment will occur towards the end with a performance of the triumphant anthem, “More Than Enough.” It was featured on the 2020 album, When I Was Your World, released on Bonfire Music Group. O’Connor is also planning on releasing her own coffee brand, Intense Brews. With the launch, NOVA will also have their own blend called True North, where 50% of proceeds will go to the organization.
“The National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA) is tremendously grateful to Intense Brews for partnering with us to develop the ‘True North’ blend,” says NOVA executive director Claire Ponder Selib. “With their generous support, NOVA will extend our work championing dignity and compassion for all victims and survivors of crime, including vulnerable communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
NOVA’s main mission is to champion dignity and compassion for those harmed by crime and crisis. Through their work, they look to assist by advocating for victims connecting them with services and resources, while training and providing skill-based victim advocates and crisis responders. Finally, they aim to ensure the highest standards and professional core competencies are met and maintained by those working directly with crime victims throughout credentialing programs, which ultimately will promote public policy initiatives that protect the rights of crime victims and serve as the national voice for victims.
Over the years, Coco has garnered attention from a variety of different genres. She has been referred to as “The type of country music sound that transcends time” by Cowboys & Indians. The publication Thrive Global also recently referred to O’Connor as “A Self-made Americana Superstar on the Rise” as well.
