Belmez Entertainment LLC in partnership with Sing Me a Story Foundation and Franklin Music Academy in Austin present the Tiniest Rockstars in Texas 2013. Tiniest Bar in Texas will host the event Saturday, March 16, 2013. The event will be a showcase of young musicians from the Austin community with a philanthropic mission at its core.
The idea for Tiniest Rockstars was “born” at the Best Lil’ Big Fest 2012 when J.P. Ahmad of the Franklin Music Academy approached Belmez Entertainment about a group of young musicians he had been coaching. His idea was to have the young rock band play a set during one of the Best Lil’ Big Fest showcases. The idea was well received.
Encouraging and promoting young musicians is where it all began, but soon-after thoughts of making the event more dynamic ensued. Belmez Entertainment made a sound decision of incorporating the not-for-profit children’s foundation, Sing Me A Story, and completed the partnership.
The premise behind Sing Me A Story Foundation is that they give kids in children’s hospitals, children’s homes and hospice organizations around the world the chance to write and illustrate stories. They then distribute those stories to songwriters who turn them into songs, record them and send them back to the kids and families via their program. It all takes place online. See what they’re up to at www.SingMeAStory.org.
This event brings attention to the importance of music and creativity amongst young people, but also how they can use that creativity to help others. We encourage your attendance in supporting to raise money for the Sing Me A Story Foundation to continue their meaningful work. Admission to the event is free, however, there will be a suggested donation at the door. Donations benefit the Sing Me A Story Foundation and the organization(s) they select to partner with for this event.
