The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, recognized as Broward County’s premier shopping destination, has announced emerging songstress Carly Jo Jackson as its next featured performer on Happy Hour with The Galleria, a virtual music series, scheduled for Thursday, June 4, at 5 p.m. on Facebook Live.

With a voice filled with grit and soul, Carly Jo Jackson brings the heat of the Florida sunshine to all she does. She has a vocal tone that is as infectious as her charismatic stage presence. She caught the attention of some big names in the music and entertainment business, opening shows for Michael McDonald (who also provided vocals on her recent EP), Kenny Loggins and Dennis Quaid and serving as a musical inspiration to Jeff Bridges who recently featured her on his Sleep Club website. Other notable performances include her 2014 appearance on America’s Got Talent, where she appeared in two televised episodes and advanced to Judgement Week; performing as an Emerging Artist at 2018’s Summerfest; singing backup vocals to Kenny Loggins at 2019’s Hawaii Songwriters Festival; performing at the renowned 30A Songwriters Festival along with Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile, Shawn Mullins, Livingston Taylor and more; opening a San Francisco 49ers game; and winning the 2015 Belk Southern Musician Showcase. In late 2019, she released her EP Au Naturel, produced by Chris Pelonis and Lost Coast Records and distributed by Jimmy Buffet’s Cherry Bomb Records.

Launched in April on Facebook Live, Happy Hour with The Galleria has successfully entertained thousands in the local community during the COVID-19 quarantine. Jackson will join previous Happy Hour with The Galleria virtual music performers Alexander Star, The Tim Charron Band and Tori Rossi Music and WILL PLUS. These archived recorded livestream performances can be found at facebook.com/GalleriaFtLauderdale.

Cost: 27

Raise your vibration from Fear to Love! Join us for this one-of-a-kind virtual circle designed as a workshop where we explore the nature and qualities of Feminine and Masculine energies, how to harmonize them within ourselves, as well as, how to navigate from fear vibration to the vibration of love which is the highest frequency.

Through attending this Divine Circle, connect with your own inner knowing while celebrating yourself and others in ways you never have before. It is a unique conversation about appreciating and celebrating our Divine Journey’s path with acceptance, forgiveness and empowerment.

Divine Feminine energy is not weak, nor is it aggressive, it is fierce compassion that refuses to descend into judgement and if it does, rises again to compassion over and over again. Individuals in touch with their feminine power are able to love, to be truthful and to honor what matters to them. Those who heal their Masculine energy are able to access unshakable strength to create harmony in relationships and increase creative potential and flow. In this workshop we will achieve both.
These individuals realize they are helping to create a new culture with wiser values. Living in this way not only feels better and more truthful, it also leads to a more successful life with much more creativity, positive contribution, personal empowerment and satisfying relationships.

What others have said:

“Mio has beautiful teachings to share that awaken our nature. She makes a safe container fueled by immense love and nurturing to bring out empowering self awareness in the participant. It’s work that you can take away and embody with natural ease.”

“I have been following Mio’s work for a while and am a fan of what she is doing. However, this was the first time I was able to participate in one of her programs. She presented useful information and insights in a very empowering and practical way. I enjoyed myself and experienced several aha moments. You owe it to yourself to experience her workshop for yourself!”

Join us and begin discovering the power of living in the harmony with Masculine/Feminine Energy. Begin learning what it is to feel deeply, love fully and thrive exponentially.
