A popular draw is “Stone Mountain Christmas” at Stone Mountain Park, where Howard is currently featured in the cabaret show through Jan. 5.
She also has a musical fundraiser planned for local 12-step recovery groups, 4-6 p.m. Feb. 2, at Wallers Coffee House in Decatur. “I am doing a program that is my original music about my recovery, social justice and spiritual journey,” said Howard.
The location has limited food and beverage offerings making it a safe space for people in recovery from food and alcohol addictions, she added.
“The reason that I feel a calling to do this is that I have observed many times that when you add music with a positive message, it creates joy in a situation where people may feel like a charity,” said Howard. “And then with the music experience, they feel like they are a part of something and not a recipient.”
