Check out the #ThinkDifferent Remix video!
This is Anne Tello
New York based alt-pop artist Anne Tello has teamed up with local not-for-profit Helping Hands for the Disabled (HHDNYC) to launch an exciting new “Beautiful” music video in honor of “White Cane Day”- a government designated day of awareness for the blind and visually impaired, celebrated each year on October 15th.
The video, a reimagined cover of Christina Aguilera’s 2002 hit “Beautiful”, features 64 year old Manhattan resident Lucia Marett, who is has been blind since birth, who had adamantly told Tello that she wanted to make a Youtube video to “show people what she could do” For preview email firstname.lastname@example.org
The video is meant to drive interest in “White Cane Day NYC” programming, to inspire New Yorkers to volunteer, and to promote a fall fundraising effort for HHDNYC.

Anne Tello E.P. Release Listening Party, with #ThinkDifferent Music Video Installation Viewing
Come celebrate the release of the Anne Tello's debut EP , and the opening of the #thinkdifferent music video installation, on view from February 27th- March 4th, 2016.
An open bar and appetizers will be provided. Reservations are highly reccomended, as space is limited, but we will allow people in off the list if the space allows for it.
This is Anne Tello's first EP, and her first audio visual work "#thinkdifferent". The event will be held in the up and coming "Two Bridges" neighborhood, a Chinese- American fusion neighborhood, which echoes the Chinese- American collaborative effort between emerging Hong Kong Filmmaker Mo Lai Yan Chi and artist Anne Tello. Inspired by Apple's 1980's slogan, filmmakers Lai and Tello marry the mantra-like potential of pop music and visual editing to explore what it means to "Think Different' when submerged in a digital world where the phrase itself is commoditized.
A few select items will be on display for sale at the gallery, by surprise up and coming Chinese curator and by XY Atelier Gallery.
#thinkdifferent Music Video Installation
Installation will be on view during normal business hours: Monday thru Friday 11am-6pm, Saturday and Sunday 11am-7pm. http://xyatelier.com
