Inspire! Community Music Jam
– Sunday, June 9 – 5 – 8 pm
This event was highlighted by the official release of One Last Time, a song by Julia Haggarty, co-written by Justin Zadorsky dedicated to their friend Nathan Deslippe.
We enjoyed amazing performances by The Pairs, Joseph William MacKay Barker III, and Sarina Haggarty. Thank you to all of the performers and our guests!
Shenanigans included an Inspiration Corner, photo booth, raffle, snacks and drinks and lots of inspiration and laughter.
Money raised went towards the Nathan T. Deslippe Memorial Fund.
During the difficult trial period, “One Last Time” was written by Nathan’s friends Justin Zadorsky and Julia Haggarty as an impact statement covering the feelings of shock, longing, and loss of their school mate and family friend. As one of 43 impact statements, the rough demo was played through the courtroom speakers. The song was distorted but the message was clear: Nathan was a huge presence who would be missed by many.
The days following the impact statements, Julia began receiving messages requesting copies of the song. She and her co-writer quickly realized their song was helping to heal the broken hearts that were missing Nathan. With the help of the Nathan T. Deslippe Memorial Fund, an official version of the song was recorded by Julia in Nashville, TN. The song was officially released on Friday, June 7th where it became available on all music streaming and purchasing platforms, as well on the Nathan T. Deslippe Memorial Fund website.
