The Mirror Stream raised $481 at the Alyona Alyona, Jerry Heil, KOLA – CHICAGO, Save Ukraine tour at Logan Square Auditorium. Thanks to Olga Rozhok for the opportunity. The music was awesome. The crowd was enthusiastic. Could not feel my legs 🙌. The funds will be used for purchasing hand, toes, and body warmers per recent request.

Alyona Alyona is a legend, often referred to as the queen of Ukrainian rap. In an article titled “15 European Pop Acts Who Matter Right Now”, The New York Times likened her to Azealia Banks.
