Belegrams is a new virtual singing telegram service from Montclair native, Daniel James Belnavis–– an award-winning singer and actor whose credits include the 1st National Tour of Hamilton: An American Musical and the International Tour of Dreamgirls.
Belegrams, a modern day and socially distant twist on singing telegrams, are live, intimate musical performances just for you. They are a wonderful way to connect with loved ones and provide a one-of-a-kind gift during the isolated times in which we are living.
Belegrams are a popular choice for special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays.
How exactly does a Belegram work? Belnavis delivers a song of your choosing, along with a personalized message, via Facetime, Zoom, or standard phone call.
There are a wide selection of songs you can choose from, including standards like “My Funny Valentine”, “Embraceable You”, “It Had To Be You”, “Moon River”, “The Nearness of You”, “Bewitched (Bothered and Bewildered)”, musical theatre classics like “Edelweiss” from The Sound of Music, “Some Enchanted Evening” from South Pacific, “People” from Funny Girl, “Somewhere” from West Side Story,”You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel, as well as Pop and R&B hits like “Ordinary People” by John Legend, “Something” by The Beatles, “Butterflies” by Kacey Musgraves, “My Girl” by The Temptations, “Isn’t She Lovely?” by Stevie Wonder, “Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars, “You’ve Got A Friend” by Carole King and more.
Each Belegram comes with a social action mission as well; All proceeds go to a different local charitable organization. For February, Belnavis will be donating to the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice, a Newark-based research and advocacy organization whose mission is to “empower people of color by building reparative systems that create wealth, transform justice, and harness democratic power–– from the ground up–– in New Jersey”.
