Ottawa vocalist Renée Yoxon's campaign to raise $10,000 to help finance her new album with Mark Ferguson reached its goal as of August 27, with five days to go.

As of August 29, it had raised $10,049. The campaign remains open until August 31, allowing donations and opportunities to pre-order the CD.

This was the largest jazz fundraising campaign in Ottawa to date.

Yoxon and Ferguson will record the album in early September, and release it at a concert at the NAC Fourth Stage on December 7, 2012.

You can see OttawaJazzScene's video coverage of their fundraising concert in August, which previewed the CD.
