The Vitamin L Project
After 32 wonderful years, The Vitamin L Project has come to a close as an active organization as of December 2021.
In 1989, we embarked on a magical journey and recorded our first album, "Walk a Mile," with Vitamin L songwriter and co-founder Jan Nigro and additional lead singers Cass Morgan, Curtis King, Kelli Crofton, Deborah Stoll, and Tremaine Jackson. Our team was rounded out by producer and arranger extraordinaire Jeff Waxman and our executive director and co-founder Janice Nigro. Eleven Ithaca youth, pictured here, added their voices to the recording, which won the national Parents' Choice Gold Award.
Our first chorus members - 1989
Over the next 32 years, we released four more award-winning recordings of Jan's Vitamin L songs and evolved into an organization with a year-round performance group. Vitamin L performed 1,195 concerts at schools, festivals, community events, and conferences, reaching approximately 369,000 children and adults in central New York and beyond. Vitamin L's meaningful messages have touched the hearts of countless more children around the world through Vitamin L recordings and videos being used in schools and homes.
When the Covid pandemic hit in March 2020, things changed for Vitamin L along with everyone else. Our concerts, rehearsals, and auditions had to be cancelled. So, we switched to music video production to get our music and messages out, completing 15 new music videos to add to other videos on our YouTube channel.
We hope you will view them, enjoy them, and experience the love and goodwill we have endeavored to spread through Vitamin L's recordings, concerts, and music videos since 1989. Vitamin L offers a heartfelt "thank you" via its final music video,
"I Want to Say Thanks."
