January 1, 2014 -- President Barack Obama issued a proclamation yesterday designating January 2014 as National Mentoring Month. He stated, “In every corner of our Nation, mentors push our next generation to shape their ambitions, set a positive course, and achieve their boundless potential. During National Mentoring Month, we celebrate everyone who teaches, inspires, and guides young Americans as they reach for their dreams.”
Through a partnership with Los Angeles Music Center on 1-18-14 (MLK Jr. weekend), MusicUNTOLD provided free admission and tickets  to 50 Long Beach youth(primarily Boys & Girls Club) with chaperons to attend mid day concert at the W.M. Keck Foundation Children’s Amphitheatre (a hidden gem located on the rooftop of the Walt Disney Concert Hall and adjacent to The Blue Ribbon Garden) by BLACK VIOLIN (African American hip hop duo consisting of two classically trained string instrumentalists with drummer and DJ).
