Friday, April 29th, the music streaming platform Trubify teamed up with NashHouse Southern Spoon & Saloon, NashTenTv, CenterStage Magazine, PLA Media, and WFMC Jams to present Olivia's Benefit. The event started on Trubify at 2pm central and ran throughout the day with a variety of artists performing on the new music streaming platform. The event also featured live Performances in Nashville at the NashHouse which started at 6pm featuring Trinity Wiseman, Olivia Farabaugh, and JADA. The event was held in an effort to promote the Transparent Music Project founded by Pennsylvania Songwriter native Olivia Farabaugh.Olivia was diagnosed with Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) in November of 2020, a multi-system and multi-symptomatic disease. While one in four people can have the gene responsible for CIRS, the disease is often hard to diagnose, and furthermore testing can be expensive as home testing is also required. In Olivia's case, it took 4 years to be diagnosed with CIRS due to exposure from black mold.
Through the Transparent Music Project, Olivia seeks to provide awareness to CIRS through her personal experience and through her music with the hopes to raise enough money to kick start the CIRS Support Fund. This fund would help those who don't have the money to be able to get the proper testing and treatment for CIRS.
Olivia's music journey has included appearing as a contestant on The Voice, winner of the Best Solo Artist in 2019 and 2020 from the Central Pennsylvania Music Hall of Fame, and was nominated for Best Female Country Artist, Songwriter of the Year, and Song of the Year ("Body Will Break") at the 2021 Central Pennsylvania Music Awards.
Currently living in Nashville, Olivia is working on taking songs from the social media aspect and songs from her own personal life, and put them together to create the Transparent Music Project which is expected to be available soon to those who donate. The official campaign for Olivia's project can be found on Indiegogo for those interested in contributing.
