Recovery Records mission is to promote and encourage abuse awareness. Started in 1995 by Sharon Berry, President, and her husband Max, Recovery Records released
it’s first CD project, Who Will Save The Children, in 1996 in an effort to raise awareness of child sexual abuse,
and as a fundraiser for the Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault (MOCSA). Production began on a music video of the title song which subsequently won numerous awards and was utilized by educators and therapists
around the country.
1998 brought the production and release of Children Celebrating Christmas
, a collection of 18 holiday classics sung by 22 of Kansas City’s most talented youngsters..
In 1999 Recovery Records produced When There Is Hope, a fundraising CD for Cypress Recovery in Olathe, Kansas. This
project featured performances by some of Kansas City’s finest jazz and blues bands and musicians, and helped Cypress Recovery raise over $10,000 for their “Drug-Free Kids Program”.
In 2001 Recovery Records produced the Click Your Heels CD to benefit Rick’s Place, a not-for-profit charitable
organization that offers support to professionals in the advertising and design community who suddenly find themselves unemployed due to serious illness, business downturns, or the incursion of technology into the creative
realm. Fifteen acts donated their energies to record original music for this purpose.
