Featured This Week On The Jazz Network Worldwide: Vocalist Frances Coché’s New CD Release of “He Did” With A DVD of “Dear Sister” Uniting Women All Over the World Who Are Victims of Emotional and Physical Abuse.

“Dear Sister” and “He Did” is an audio/video project offering women guidance in releasing the emotions that hold them self-captive relating to every area of abuse, giving them the courage and confidence to speak out and to step away from their misery.

Frances Coché has come full circle in her life. From pleasing audiences worldwide to the dedication to her quest to reach to the hearts of women who have been chastised by abuse both physically and spiritually. Her brainchild of “Dear Sister” and “He Did” was born out of a yearning in her heart after watching a news broadcast about a woman from another country being repeatedly raped for a crime her brother committed. This knowledge was the food for thought that organically grew in Frances heart to compose a song that would speak into the lives of these women. The celebration of life was born in the video where women from different cultures unite to bring encouragement and hope for a brighter future while dancing to the uplifting melody of sisterhood in “Dear Sister”.

Cochés roots span the globe from her recordings in Spanish, Japanese, Cajun French and English. Her singing style is a signature sound that has graced stages with Don Ellis, Teddy Edwards, Don Costa (Arranger for Frank Sinatra), Jack Sheldon, Joe Manie, Jim Gordon and Joe Hackney who is the producer of her CD “To You With Love”, “I’ll Remember Wig” produced by Frances as well as her latest release “He Did”.

“My heart has opened to the plight of abuse around the world and had to find a way to reach these women” says Frances. “It reminds me of a song I heard in the sixties called, “Only Women Bleed”. The song “Dear Sister” was created for us to learn to show up, stand up, speak out and say NO! What ever it takes to bring safety, education, wisdom and knowledge to these women is my quest. We are worthy and loved by God and it is crucial to our emotional, mental and physical well-being to never forget that we are children of the Most High God” shares Coché.

To take it a step further, Coché has coordinated a workshop entitled “Dear Sister”, created to give support to the participants that need to release their deeply hidden emotions behind abuse through prayer and the encouragement to ‘let go and let God’. First session beginning on June 7th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. June 20th from 5:00pm to 8:00pm, July 5th at 1:00pm to 4:00pm, and July 11th from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.  All sessions are located at Hollypark UMC Fellowship Hall, 13000 Van Ness Avenue., Gardena, CA 90249.  Participants are asked to bring snacks for break times.

“When Frances Coché approached me with her new Gospel/Soul project I immediately responded to her vision in support of women who have endured the terror of abuse. Frances chose to bring her audience in the jazz community to this startling revelation hoping that her compelling lyrics and deep-rooted witness of her own faith will translate her calling to this cause” says Jaijai Jackson of The Jazz Network Worldwide.

How Frances Coche' became acquaianted with Jazz

I was always interested in Gospel and Blues in the early years like 7 or eaven earlier, My sister liked the big bands she went to school when big bands were happening so I learned about Glen Miller because she taught me how to dance to "In the mood" Glen Miller, but I was into the blues and would sing them around the house, Here I am a little girl, going around the house singing "I got a monkey" not realizing what the song was about, lol, Well years passed and I marriedRichard Thompson, Jazz…See More
