Performing for Quincy Jones!
I am so honored to announce that I will be performing for Quincy Jones at the L.A Jazz Society's Celebrating the World of Quincy Jones Concert next month on November 19th!! The concert will not only be honoring Quincy, but Jackie and Howard Banchik; two incredible individuals that co-founded the Harmony Project, an inner city music program that allows free music lessons and instruments to youth.
Music is such an amazing and influential part of my life and I am extremely grateful to be able to show homage to people that have contributed and care so much about the arts. A huge thanks goes out to all of my friends and family that have supported my musical endeavors. I would not be able to do what I love if it wasn't for you all <3 !!
I can't forget some of my coaches and mentors Barbara Morrison, Howlett Smith, Sybil Coker, Jeri Gaile, Ron McCurdy, Michael Hayden, Dominique Eade the Leimert Park community, and the World Stage for giving me guidance and strength! And my dad, Donald Dean, Grandfather Donald Dean, Uncle Bill Dean, sister Dondei Dean, and cousin Jamael Dean !
The concert will be off the chain because John Clayton is the musical director and his big band is playing! Some of the performers include Patti Austin, Siedah Garrett, Rickey Minor, and Hubert Laws.. just to name a few :)
Woo! Tickets are now available!
