Raphael Saadiq & AmEx Support Youth Music Education


Last month, ZYNC from American Express joined Matt & Kim to help fight youth homelessness in America. Now, American Express is hooking up with esteemed R&B singer, songwriter and producer Raphael Saadiq in support of The Roots of Music, a New Orleans based youth music education program. The Roots of Music Program fills a void in music education programs in New Orleans educational institutions. Where marching bands were always an integral part of the New Orleans middle schools, this has changed drastically after Hurricane Katrina and many schools don’t offer music programs anymore. The Roots of Music Program serves over 100 students, making up a full marching band that is successfully parading the city since Mardi Gras 2009. Like before, for every view the Backstage Pass video above receives, one dollar will be donated to this indispensable program by ZYNC from American Express. It's once again time to use our social media resources to spread the word and make that view counter add up. Share on Facebook and Twitter by clicking on the buttons below.
