Fame and Fortune

As an adult I now find myself in a world where everyone is an “artist” of some sort, but the idea or goal of these artists is not to create. It is fame, or fortune, or most times both. They create with the intention of making, or designing, or producing, or recording ‘that thing’ that will propel them to the hight of society.

People take gimmicks and run with them. Lego accessories designers. Skateboarder, weed smoking, skinny jean rappers. Black barbies. ‘Fashion week is my favorite Holiday of the year’, I’m America’s next top model (from brooklyn). Smh..

It seems that no one wants to be an actual person anymore.

It seems that in the age of technology. The world has become a desktop. and everyone wants to be an Icon.


Bone Marrow Drive & Benefit Concert In Memory of Shannon Tavarez


Sometimes tears can be fuel for motivation.  A close friend of Shannon Tavarez the sweet girl who passed away after a battle with Leukemia, was overwhelmed by grief after Shannon’s passing but decided to do something in her memory and hopefully save the life of another.  This Sunday, RARE Media Group will be hosting a Bone Marrow Drive and Benefit Concert in memory of Shannon Tavarez.  January 20th would have been Shannon’s 12th birthday.  

Harlem School of the Arts | 645 St. Nicholas Ave New York, NY
Sunday, January 16 · 1:00pm – 7:00pm

More information from RARE Media Group:

R.A.R.E. Media Group presents: Start It Up! Bone Marrow Drive and Benefit Concert in memory of Shannon Tavarez.

Shannon Tavarez, whom some may remember as Young Nala on Broadway’s The Lion King, was a beautiful and talented girl who passed away due to AML Leukemia in early November. Leukemia is a malignant cancer of the bone marrow and blood. About 43,050 adults and 3,317 children were expected to develop leukemia in 2010 alone. January 20, 2011 would have been Shannon’s 12th birthday.

On January 16, 2011, we’ve partnered with DKMS, the largest bone marrow center in the world, to carry on her legacy by registering potential bone marrow donors to save lives while enjoying performances from talented singers, rappers and dancers. From “So You Think You Can Dance” finalists to Underground Music Award winners, these performers are passionate and willing to share their talents to support such a great cause. It will be a day to remember!

The cost is FREE with a suggested $5 donation at the door of which proceeds will go to Shannon’s S.H.A.R.E. Foundation.

Start It Up! is a program that promotes awareness and taking action for issues affecting our community and daily lives while integrating the arts.
