EarHustle411 is so proud of The Chosen Few DJs. We all are still on cloud 25 from our participation with their successful 25th Annual Picnic. We received communications that the Team has decided to take their success and use it to contribute to the betterment of mankind.
The Chosen Few DJs collectively are Wayne Williams, Jesse Saunders, Alan King, Tony Hatchett, Andre Hatchett, Terry Hunter, Mike Dunn and the queen of the crew Kim Parham. We are so glad to announce the Chosen Few DJs are embarking into the realm of non-profit with the launch of Beyond The Groove Foundation.
The Chosen Few’s new venture is designed to give back the community and share their talents of DJing with the youth.
“It is our hope that we can expose young people to the same kinds of positive experiences that we had as kids growing up in Chicago, and in the process help develop the next generation of house music enthusiasts, DJs, performance artists and producers.” –Alan King, Chosen Few DJs
The Art of DJing is one that is not without controversy. There’s those who came into the game back in the day using actual records and turntables and those who were made through the digital era. Regardless of the method in which the art is learned, the hope that the new generation is receptive to growing and staying true to the art.
“While our Picnic certainly isn’t as profitable as some of the other music festivals in Chicago, we feel a responsibility to share some of the profits from the event in ways that will benefit the communities where we were born and raised,” says Terry Hunter, Chosen Few DJs.
It’s a community effort that’s definitely needed and we applaud The Chosen Few DJs on taking the first step to doing what’s necessary to making a change in our community while preserving an art form that so well worth preserving.
EarHustle411 Congratulates The Chosen Few DJs, keep doing what you do!!
