MILWAUKEE, Oct. 5, 2020 /Christian Newswire/ -- St. Francis loved music, and the camaraderie of a shared performance and singing. In that spirit we offer a free download of "All My Brothers and Sisters" featuring musical artists of diverse genres and backgrounds from Milwaukee as well as our own sisters and a 'brother' "All coming around…" in the latest Franciscana Costa Collaboration.
Alternating verses are Milwaukee's Joe Jordan and the WhiskeyBelles Chrissy Clobes. Renown as an R+B soul singer on the Milwaukee scene, his first two solo projects; "Can You Find Your Soul" and "Let's Go To That Place" earned Joe Jordan three Wisconsin Area Music Award (WAMI) nominations. He strives to share his passion for music, providing opportunities for young inner-city boys and girls in 3rd and 4th grades to perform and grow creatively through music, as well as be a positive role model.
Chrissy is a consummate musician twice nominated for WAMI Female Vocalist of the Year. Her solo albums are 'In the Making' and nationally distributed 'Far From Dreaming'

Sieger reflected that "All My Brothers and Sisters," was an epic adventure. Over thirty tracks, with people from all over adding their parts in my studio or sending them over the internet. It's an honor to be associated with all the talented artists who added parts. Thank you Sisters!"
