Teens United Live was created by four Santa Monica teens to help ensure that opportunities for musical education are not sacrificed due to financial hardship. Now in its third year, TEENS UNITED LIVE has brought together musicians from schools across Los Angeles to help raise money for teens in need. When they were 9th graders at Crossroads School, Bella Porter, Sol Was, Taylor Mackall and Alec Singer were disheartened to learn of drastic cuts in LAUSD’s music programs.
Enlisting help from musician friends all over Los Angeles, they organized a concert in 2012 at the Roxy, featuring 35 teens playing a revue of great classic songs, and raised over $12,000 for the Foshay Learning Center’s Music Program. In 2013, they mounted a second concert and this time raised over $20,000 for the Harmony Project, a program that gives kids from inner city urban areas the opportunity to play in orchestras and jazz bands, keeping them in school and off the streets. Amazing right?
