Seattle youth "represented" @ historic WH concert: "A Celebration of Music from the Civil Rights Movement"

UPDATE: The DC concert they attended, hosted by President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, is scheduled to air on PBS tomorrow night (read more about it here).
Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association & Youngstown Cultural Arts Center:
We are thrilled to announce that the founding youth of Youngstown Records are currently in Washington, D.C., representing Seattle and creative young people across the country at the historic concert "A Celebration of Music from the Civil Rights Movement." This opportunity was granted by the Grammy Foundation through Kathleen Allen, community arts liason with Seattle Public Schools, when she was moved by the students' performance for the opening of their exhibit at the Frye Art Gallery. We are humbled and immensely proud of the work of the youth, as well as Youngstown staff Kevin Mock and Roberto Ascalon, with MusicianCorps fellow Amos Miller.
