Orlando has America’s Talent!

Did you see Studio One Young Beast Society last night on America’s Got Talent?  Did you vote for them? Well, you should have because they’ve got Orlando connections: The group placed second in January’s Seminole’s Got Talent at the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center, and Parramore Kidz Zone’s DaQuan Barnes Williams is part of their dance group.

The Parramore Kids Zone (PKZ) is part of the Mayor’s Children and Education Initiative and is modeled after the well-known Harlem Childrens Zone.  Here’s what the PKZ website says is their mission:

“PKZ aims to lower teenage pregnancy, juvenile crime and child abuse rates among children in this neighborhood, and also improve their school performance.  How will PKZ do this?  By investing in things that make a difference in children’s lives – such as quality early childhood education, after school programs, programs that build family economic success, youth development programs for teenagers, access to health care, mentoring, and more.  PKZ will make Parramore a GREAT place for kids.”

So, now that you know, perhaps you will vote for them! Go Studio One Young Beast Society!

    We truly appreciate the exposure of Parramore Kidz Zone youth DaQuan Barnes Williams and his dance team … Studio One Young Beast Society. We need encourage people to vote once they make it to the next round. The Parramore Kidz Zone provides educational, recreational and cultural programs to children who live in the Parramore community. DaQuan will remember his experience on America’s Got Talent forever. Go Studio One … Go Orlando!!
