Tora Fisher is a New York based singer-songwriter and performance artist. When she was young, her mother encouraged her to develop her artistic side while her father exposed her to a world outside of the arts: he created the Fisher House Foundation, a network of comfort homes where military and their families can stay at no cost while their loved ones receive care and treatment. Tora developed a keen interest in these two starkly different worlds: that of the arts, and the art of war.

When Tora was 13, she experienced the unfathomable when she was the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed her father, stepmother, and four others. Her resilience and determination to recover from this trauma was nurtured by her love of music and performance and her ability to pursue her dreams of being a singer-songwriter, pianist, dancer and recording artist. She has also fulfilled her dream of supporting her father's legacy by donating proceeds from her CDs to the Fisher House Foundation.

As Tora so aptly put it, "its not about what happened to me; it's about what's happening."

Her new CD entitled Tora Fisher will be released in the spring of 2014.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
