BENEFITING: CHILDREN MENDING HEARTS INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2013
My name is Johnathan McNeil and I was a Hollywood-Finalist on American Idol Season 12.Im 22 years old and I've been doing music for over 15 years, I simply love to touch peoples hearts with my music. I come from a less than fortunate family but that never stopped me from striving to achieve my dream, and my dream is to touch millions of hearts positively with the message and profit from my music. I've started a non-profit organization called "Hearts For Art" and its a national outreach to inner city youth who cant afford musical instruments or lessons.
"Hearts For Art" will be a artistic, positive safe haven for our youth to inspire great positive ventures from within. I have been blessed to have lived out my dream with American Idol, now my passion is to pay my blessings forward. I want to use all I have accomplished & my further achievements to highlight the "Hearts For Art" all around us. Please help me to change some young kids lives for the better and so they can also pay it forward.The down payment on the studio is nearly $1500.I really want the children to have access to a piano, guitar & recording studio upon opening in which is going to total nearly $3,000.I want "Hearts For Art" to be a clean, positive environment for the children to explore their artistic endeavors. In order for "Hearts For Art" to lift-off I must raise a minimum of $4500,please look into your heart and bless these children as if they were your own. If we are blessed to exceed our minimum goal I will invest the funds in a commercial van which will be used as transportation for the kids if needed. I ask you from the bottom of my spirit to please help me and these children make big, bright steps to a better, artistic future for us all. Your contribution will not only inspire,and mold many young gifted children;but I believe would save there lives aswell.
