Looking for a one-of-a-kind gift this Mother’s Day? Give the gift of song by ordering a Belegram today!
Belegrams are a modern day, socially distant twist on singing telegrams 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.
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”, 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, “You’ve Got A Friend” by Carole King and more.
Each Belegram comes with a social action mission as well. Each month a portion of all proceeds are donated to a different local charitable organization. For May, Belnavis will be donating to Start Out Fresh Intervention Advocates (fondly referred to as S.O.F.I.A.) –– a non profit organization that provides advocacy, supportive services and referrals for temporary housing to women and children of domestic violence.
