We wanted to share this stunning video that Cape Colony Inn had produced this season featuring all the activities people love about Ptown. We brought in a video team as well as drone footage to product this video that highlights Carnival, seashore activities, nightlife, and more. We would love for you to share it and let us know what you think!
Anne Steele’s amazing song, “Love Can Take Us There,” has been chosen by the Carnival committee as the theme for this year’s celebration. The song is an uplifting and exciting dance song that reflects the beauty and energy of life and happiness. The song is available on iTunes TODAY, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the One Orlando Fund.
“I was devastated by the tragedy at the Pulse nightclub and I knew I had to do something to help the victims and their families. So, what could I do? Well, i have a lot of friends in the music business and I knew the best way that I could give back was to write and record a song. I reached out to 2 OUT and accomplished songwriters from Nashville, Shane Stevens and Stephony Smith, and we immediately got to work. We have since written and recorded a song called “Love Can Take Us There”. I thought it was very important to have it be an uplifting dance song for many reasons. One, because I think its important to focus on the love and the outpouring of support that has followed this tragedy. The coming together of the community has been a beautiful thing to watch. Two, because so often in the gay community we feel like outsiders yet we can go to a club or bar and feel safe and surrounded by acceptance. Those victims were dancing and celebrating when they were taken from us and I think its important to keep that spirit alive on the dance floor. The song will be a loving reminder that love can help heal us all. “ – Anne Steele
You can hear Anne perform the song LIVE during the Carnival So80’s Dance Party. She will open the show and get the party started. Get your tickets at:
