Joe Sparrow (IG: @itsjoesparrow), with his raw talent and captivating stage presence, commanded attention from the moment he strummed his first chord. His music transcended mere entertainment, serving as a poignant soundtrack to the fight against fentanyl abuse. On Friday, March 15, he graced the VIP Launch Party at Be Good Restaurant and Experience with his electrifying performance, setting the tone for the weekend ahead. Sparrow’s world premiere cover of “Drug Dealers” had the crowd mesmerized. This rendition, delivered with raw emotion and intensity, served as a poignant reminder of the harsh realities surrounding drug abuse. Sparrow’s fearless interpretation of the song sparked conversation and introspection among attendees, further amplifying the event’s message of awareness and action.

Then, on Saturday, March 16, Sparrow took the stage at the STOMP! Fentanyl Fashion Show, delivering a set that captivated the audience and left them yearning for more. From soulful ballads to energizing anthems, Sparrow’s versatility as an artist shone through, leaving an indelible mark on all who were fortunate enough to witness his performance.

Jennalyn (IG: @jennalynponraj), equally mesmerizing with her enchanting voice, took to the stage on Friday night alongside Sparrow, setting the ambiance for the event with her soul-stirring ballads.

In an exclusive Q&A, Jennalyn shared her thoughts on being part of such a meaningful event. “It’s truly an honor to be asked to perform at the STOMP! Fentanyl event,” she expressed. “This cause is incredibly close to my heart. I’ve witnessed firsthand the devastating effects of addiction, as one of my childhood best friends has struggled with it on and off.” Her candid reflection sheds light on the personal connections that drive artists like Jennalyn to use their platform for positive change.

She also shed light on the inspiration behind her latest single, “Under Your Skin,” which she described as holding a special place in her heart. “I wrote it for a horror film I was involved in over the summer,” she explained. “I’m thrilled to be performing it live for the first time at this event!” Her willingness to share her creative process adds depth to her performance, illustrating the power of music to transcend mediums and connect with audiences on a profound level.
