Ghetto Youths Foundation (@ghettoyouthsfoundation), the charitable organization founded and directed by Stephen, Damian, and Julian Marley, announces the second installment in the new series, Pic Love Conversations: a new, quarantine-friendly opportunity for fans to connect directly with their favorite artists, while supporting GYF’s mission to give back to those in need.
The series officially launched in October 2020 with a sold-out session featuring the Grammy-nominated, multi-talented music artist Julian Marley who connected live with fans for a thrilling private Zoom session of reasoning and cultural conversation. Continuing this exciting new offering to bring fans in direct contact with the foremost reggae artists working today, Ghetto Youths Foundation is thrilled to present acclaimed singer and songwriter Tarrus Riley as the featured artist for the second session on Sunday, November 15, 2020 at 6pm EST. Serving as host and MC for the private Zoom session is the beloved dancehall DJ Shacia Payne Marley, daughter of Stephen Marley.
Tickets are $100 per person and include exclusive access to the private Zoom Room; the opportunity to chat with Tarrus Riley and ask a question; and a special 50% discount code on the stunning Pic Love jewelry collection (www.ghettoyouthsfoundation.org/piclove). Tickets go on sale on Monday, November 2, 2020 at 12 noon EST, and are offered on a first-come-first serve basis, LIMITED TO NO MORE THAN 25 GUESTS.
All proceeds directly support Ghetto Youths Foundation’s ongoing work within communities in need, providing critical access to health and wellness, education and youth programming, elder support, and community interventions.
“It’s an honor to take some time out and connect with my fans for a great cause like Pic Love, powered by Ghetto Youths Foundation and my Ghetto Youths family,” said Tarrus Riley. “I Iook forward to seeing you all, one on one as we Pic Love and conversate.”
“We are so thankful to Tarrus Riley for his commitment to our shared mission, especially critical at this moment in time when young people across the globe are facing new and unimagined challenges,” said Eva Silverstein, Executive Director of Ghetto Youths Foundation. “And it is a privilege to bring so much joy to music and culture lovers, finding meaningful connection across the Zoom airwaves!”
Every month, a new artist from a roster of the very best, fan-favorite reggae and dancehall artists on the scene today will participate in a lively, unfiltered Zoom chat with 25 super fans. Each guest will have the opportunity to ask a question directly to the artist, who will Zoom in from his/her home or studio, providing an intimate glimpse into their private domain. As a special thank you, each guest will also be provided with a 50% discount code to purchase any of the Pic Love capsule collection of jewelry – necklaces and bracelets created from Stephen Marley’s signature heart-shaped guitar pic, and hand-dipped in solid gold.
