Make Love will be soulful, fresh, seductive, original and inspiring. I could not have done it without my fans' inspiring messages of encouragement. This album is a real life Cinderella story.

With a name like Love, Valentine's Day means something very special. In the case of singer-songwriter Franki Love, not only will she make four free music downloads available from her site, FrankiLove.com, but her upcoming album — tentatively titled Make Love — crosses a major milestone.
Named Female Singer/Songwriter of the Year by the Los Angeles Music Awards, Love successfully raised over $7,500 to date Make Love's page on Kickstarter.com (http://kck.st/f5xVpS), a website that matches donors with creative endeavors. She will start work on Make Love on Feb. 21 with Warren Huart, slated to produce the first two tracks. Huart's previous collaborations include James Blunt, The Fray and Matisyahu.
Contributions for the production of Make Love will be taken until Valentine's Day, 2 p.m. Pacific standard time. Rewards for pledges range from a digital single from the upcoming album for a $1 contribution, to an executive producer credit on the album, a share of the album's revenue and a tour of Love's recoding studio for $10,000. Love is also making the album available for pre-order for $10 through Kickstarter.com and FrankiLove.com tomorrow.
"Raising the money for Make Love through Kickstarter.com gives my fans a unique way to take part in its creation," Love said. "As an independent music artist without the support of a label, sites like Kickstarter.com allows fans to directly support my creative efforts, which I appreciate deeply. I am touched and very grateful for every donation I've received. Make Love will be soulful, fresh, seductive, original and inspiring. I could not have done it without my fans' inspiring messages of encouragement. This album is a real life Cinderella story."
Four of Love's songs will be available for free through her website, FrankiLove.com on Valentine's Day to Friday, Feb. 18. The tracks, from her debut album Franki Love, includes "Shadow," "Bloom," "Love Like it's Never Gonna Hurt" and "Swim." "Love Like it's Never Gonna Hurt" was featured as a Best Song of the Month on Songwriteruniverse.com. "Shadow" won Adult Contemporary Song of the Year at the L.A. Music Awards, was named one of the Billboard World Song Contest's Top 100 Songs, and (with "Bloom") was awarded Best Song by Songwriteruniverse.com. The music video for "Shadow" was listed on the Grammy Awards ballot this year and was a nominee for "Best Music Video" at the Hollywood Film Festival.
"These are songs that the fans talk about the most and generate the most response," she added. "They're for anyone looking for songs from the heart. 'Shadow,' 'Bloom,' 'Love Like it's Never Gonna Hurt' and Swim' are my valentines to you."
