Brittany Kingery CD release party Friday in Olympia

Former East County resident Brittany Kingery will celebrate the release of her CD “Edge of the Ocean” with a concert at 8 p.m., Friday at the Royal Lounge in Olympia.

Born and raised in McCleary, Kingery was a drummer in high school, studied music at Grays Harbor College and received a degree from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Manhattan. She was a finalist in the Grays Harbor Idol competition in 2007.

All proceeds from the sales and downloads of her CD will be donated to Corozon de Niña, a privately run “casa hogar,” similar to a foster home, which currently houses 17 adolescent girls removed from abusive or neglectful homes.

The Royal Lounge is located at 311 Capitol Way N. and tickets to the event are $10.
