Brooklyn Teen Rock

YLE LogoIII’m proud of all of my success in the Entertainment Industry.  But I’m really proud of the work that I’ve done with teens in Brooklyn.  It’s work that is close to my heart and very necessary. I’ve been mentoring young people since 2002; though the work is not without challenges, it is very rewarding.  I take comfort knowing that these teens will one day look back on their lives and have fond memories. They’ll remember that someone cared for them and took the time to invest in their future.  [Insert Whitney Houston song here.] I look forward to seeing them do amazing things and passing the goodness forward to young people when they become adults.

In October of 2011 I started helping the re-building efforts of the youth ministry for Emmanuel Baptist Church, which is aptly named Youth Leaders of Emmanuel (YLE).  Last Friday, we had a super-sized version of our bi-weekly event Teen Canteen REMASTERED.  The teens…and adults had a blast.  Check out video and rock with us!
