WHAT IS THE NATIONAL PTSD BENEFIT GALA?
In 2014 I decided to change my life into serving a purpose that was bigger than me. At the time I was the owner and operator of a very successful Construction/Oil & Gas company out of Calgary, AB. I never stopped being a songwriter and performer, although I took a hiatus from the career as an International Recording Artist and Singer/Songwriter, it never stopped living inside of me. As the reality of “WHO” I was became more prominent, I knew that this was my calling and with my motto “Healing the World – One Song at a Time”, my vision of being the change I wanted to see in the world came to life through Planetary Persuasion Ltd. My dream to help Veterans & First Responders suffering from PTSD became my purpose in life. This is when I launched The National PTSD Benefit Gala with a series of House Concerts.
Through the efforts of our team at Planetary Persuasion Ltd. our goal is to reach as many towns and cities across Canada to not only create awareness but to support programs that do such a vital effort in educating the public and helping those living with PTSD. Since 2015 I have toured throughout different parts of Canada and as far East as Halifax, NS. and by 2019 we plan to be in every major city across Canada.
The objective of the Benefit Gala is to create a National awareness of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a treatable injury and to aid in the removal of the stigma associated with it. Our goal is to fund existing and recognized programs focusing on the treatment and recovery of PTSD, education on how we can drastically reduce the occurrence of PTSD and focussing on our ultimate goal “REMOVING THE STIGMA”! By removing the stigma it will make it easier and more viable for uniformed Men & Women and their families to access the support they need without the fear of losing careers, judgement by colleagues and ultimately maintaining a healthier life.
Although PTSD is a huge issue amongst our Veterans, Police, Fire & EMS, it is not the only issue. Without proper diagnosis, treatment and help, PTSD is only the beginning to many other issues that stem from this injury! With access to resources, funding for existing and new programs there is a way to move forward with PTSD. With these Gala’s we are committed to accessing valuable solutions to help these Heroes of our great Country.
Planetary Persuasion Ltd. is connecting with credible resources and programs across Canada that will provide healing and aid in the recovery of these issues. Continuing to work with these organizations and individuals will help to provide ongoing support and solutions to increased longevity for successful transitions.
As with anything, the same method and rule does not apply to everyone, hence working with different programs and organizations to ensure a higher success rate on all levels.
Our benefactor of the funds raised in ALL Atlantic Provinces is The Society of Atlantic Heroes.
To date the funds used to launch this program in its entirety, have come from Planetary Persuasion Ltd and myself. There has been no outside funding of any kind, and no government grants. Although I would not change one thing that I have done, I have come to the realization that if I want to continue this incredible work for our Veterans & First Responders we will need assistance from people like you!
We look forward to working with in “Healing the World – One Song at a Time!”©
Let’s all work together to make a difference!

JESSIE TYLRE WILLIAMS “Healing the World – One Song at a Time!”©
International Recording Artist Jessie Tylre Williams is a high-powered and compelling Singer/Songwriter who is full of passion and drive. This is a perfect match for her humbling manner, “Healing the World – One Song at a Time”© which truly showcases what she believes and stands for: music that brings people together in peace and unity.
Deriving from a non-musical family, Jessie started writing when she was just 9 years old. After saving up to buy her first guitar Jessie started putting musical notes to the lyrics that would soon change the world around her, playing until her fingers blistered. “Music isn’t something you just wake up to one day and say you’re going to do, it is in your blood, its who you are!” At this time she did not know the true effect her music would have on the world and how much her strength and compassion would be inspiring for those who listened to the melodies derived from a soulful journey.
No stranger to the music industry, Jessie has won many awards including Nashville TCMA awards for Most Outstanding Showcase Entertainer of the Year and Most Promising Female Artist of the Year. “The awards are really nice, but they are not what drive me. What drives me is the desire to change an all too often dim world. It’s important for me that people know and understand I want to be the difference that I want to see in the world, and I’m so blessed that I can captivate a larger audience through my music. If the awards mean that I am helping to improve life for others, then there is meaning behind them!”
Jessie surrenders her strong sense of ability through authentic acoustic sounds and melodies derived from the deepest realms of an intimate and personal journey. In both her writing and performance, Williams demonstrates her raw and inspiring experience of survival and determination that drives her to create original, empowering material. Each song, like a separate chapter, unfolds a story of continual hope and courage, moving each listener through her lyrical exposure of emotion.
Originally from Manitoba, Jessie followed a gypsy lifestyle of movement from a young age and turned to music as a way of grounding herself. Now calling Alberta home, she continues as a passionate singer and songwriter preaching the potential of sound and voice as a healing medium gaining her musical influence through lending a hand to help others that need support during their own hardships.
Her latest video “Breathe” shows us her raw and inspiring lyrics – “Just Breathe”, giving the listener hope in those moments of feeling overwhelmed and consumed by life’s daily challenges. Her compelling music has shown us that life is all about living and enjoying the moment you are in now.
Jessie’s hard work and determination will prevail with strength and growth for the Nat’l PTSD Benefit Gala dates across Canada and soon to be international tour dates. Raising awareness and abolishing the stigma of PTSD is only the beginning of Jessie’s influential vision.
“It feels so good to give back, to leave a piece of me wherever I go. Something I feel so blessed to be able to do. We must never stop believing. Where there is life - - there truly is hope. Music is such a powerful force and it can really heal and transform lives!”
