The show must go on.

At least that’s the attitude Gia Giudice is taking when it comes to her burgeoning music career.

Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Teresa and Joe Giudice‘s eldest daughter is taking financial matters into her own hands, asking for online donations to help make her music dreams come true.

Despite the fact that her parents will soon serve time in prison for multiple charges, including bankruptcy fraud, the 13-year-old singer is looking on the bright side.

“Obviously, any news that is hurtful or horrible to hear is so upsetting. But my family is probably one of the strongest families I know, so we’ll get through this,” she recently told Access Hollywood, adding, “It’s going to be fine and when it’s over, we’re going to be better than ever.”

But while the cash-strapped family is dealing with hefty fines and legal fees, Gia isn’t putting her music on hold. A member of the group 3KT, the band she started with pals Alexa Maetta, 16, and Christianna Cardinale, 14, Gia and her friends launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for their upcoming video.

“3KT love our fans! We want to give you an awesome original Christmas music video in time for the holiday!” reads a message on their Kickstarter page, which seeks to raise $7,500 by Dec. 12.

As for what the parentals think of her pop star aspirations, “My parents think it’s fun,” Gia told Access Hollywood. “I just want to make them proud.”
