Millions of children across our great nation are falling victim to violence, gang activity, homelessness, and many other pressures due to many factors including but not limited to; socio-economic factors, foster care system, sexual assault, child abuse, drug abuse, and lack of parental guidance. Many of these children are not aware of alternative lifestyles than that of the street. Due to these factors our juvenile justice system is over flowing with youth offenders, the opioid epidemic is striking younger and younger, with this the future of our nation is beginning to look bleak.
Music is a universal language it has no barriers and can reach, as well as touch a multitude of people including these young people. Our foundation is partnering with artists such as GTee Shotta, WuTang Clan, and other well known artists to utilize our musical talents to reach out to these children and show them there is an alternative to their current situation. In conjunction with a music tour that will begin in August 2019 and complete in February 2020 we plan to partner with local organizations in those cities where these artists will be performing to reach the at-risk youth within these communities. As we begin to form partnerships with these local organizations to identify youth that will benefit from the art of music.
It is our intention to utilize this grant funding to bring those youth identified through the local organizations into the art of music. Our artists will collaborate with those youth to create music whether it be through singing, learning equipment skills within the studio, and/or production of music. These artists intend to volunteer their time to produce a CD compilation of songs written, recorded, and produced in collaboration with these children throughout the tour. If funding allows it is also the intention of our foundation to produce a music video in collaboration with these children as well. Many of these youth will benefit from the mentor ship, skills, and knowledge they will gain from these industry leading artists who have experienced first hand the power of music and the positive change it can bring when utilized the proper way.
