I found this through my Facebook feed. It is quite a long letter so I will offer a short summary.
Nana (who as we all know is a Cheiron legend with her vocals being the foundation of countless songs, everything from Britney to E-Type) has been battling throat cancer for about 4 years now. She survived the cancer but had to undergo excessive radiation treatment with adverse such as losing teeth etc. After her 30 years of vocal training she is now unsure if she will ever sing again.
As if this was not enough, she is also in debt after several years of not being able to work. While Sweden is known for its generous welfare system, it has its limitations and as of lately more and more cases have reached the surface where sick people are more or less forced to get back to work even though they are not well.
It has gone far enough for her to fear eviction if she cannot turn things around and she is calling out for her FB friends/anyone to help her out before she is forced to move out of her apartment.
Many people out of Cheiron made it out with successful carreers and million dollar bank accounts, but the same cannot be said for the backing vocalists who do not get songwriting royalty, production royalty or production fee cuts. While they are entitled to a "artist royalty" of sorts, this is largely paid out to the main artist - and many countries do not offer these payouts at all. Most often they just get a small fee for their time in the studio, if anything.
I don't know if there is a lot we could do but I would want to help her out somehow. As a struggling producer I don't have a lot of money but I would be heartbroken to watch my backing vocalists suffer while my songs went #1.
