Introducing: music for hope

Brotha d 

A platform for young people 25 years and under to be heard through music, to develop through music and to be mentored through music


In a world where adults often prioritize their needs first, our kids feel like they have been forgotten 

This is an opportunity for them to feel heard and for the older generation to understand, these kids have value.
