After two years of trying to touch base with more youtube personalities, I had the honor of speaking with AJ Rafael.
To me, this was a special blessing as AJ has created an annual concert to promote Autism Awareness - called Music Speaks.
His inspiration came from his Nephew - who has Autism - and AJ wanted to DO Something!
Because of his regular dedication at collaborating with hundreds (if not thousands) of youtube musicians on a regular basis - and also because of his efforts with Music Speaks - we were desperate in trying to reach him. I kept thinking to myself that we HAVE TO reach him and collaborate with him as well! If anything to help promote his efforts at least.
I'm excited at this opportunity to not only help AJ with Music Speaks (which from what I've seen so far has been amazing!) - but we will be working together in the weeks and months ahead.
In the meantime - here is his promo for Music Speaks 2012 - which will be on Saturday, November 3 in Pomona, CA. AJ's choir, MVCC, along with Tori Kelly, Cameron Mitchell, Richard Tran, Dante Basco, Mathai, and the Gardiner Sisters will be performing (among so many others in the Youtube Community)...
