Alexx will be performing all over LA County in the upcoming months with the P.A.C.E. (Promoting Academics Through Creative Expression) Program. P.A.C.E. is a non-profit organization that provides entertainment to children in inner city schools.
Created in 2006, P.A.C.E. brings educational music entertainment programs to LA County middle and senior high schools in order to promote the relevance and importance of graduating high school through the medium of live music. The ultimate goal is to reduce the dropout rate in LA County by encouraging participation in local creative outlets and by providing positive, educated role models for students contemplating dropping out. Due to California state budget cuts and No Child Left Behind mandates, LA County has maintained unacceptable dropout rates for the past 5 years. Through partnerships with local organizations and schools, P.A.C.E. has been able to perform in 24 Los Angeles Unified School District schools, which accounts for over 24,000 students. P.A.C.E. Program is designed to motivate students in the areas of improved classroom participation, higher academic achievement, increased participation in local creative outlets, educational and personal perseverance and character building.
Yesterday was AC’s first show at George Washington Carver Middle School in L.A. AC and songwriting partner, Dennis Morehouse played to a packed auditorium of great kids, and shared the stage with some talented artists, including new friends, Dawone. AC is very excited to be part of such a great cause.
Keep checking back for more dates as AC may just be dropping in on your school!
