The Kelly Clarkson Show and Kevin Bacon Show Support for Philly-Based Non-Profit
On a recent episode of the Kelly Clarkson Show, Philadelphia's Rock to the Future had a special appearance, featuring the organization's founder and CEO Jessica Craft, co-founder Josh Craft, program alumni Jared Smith, and Nia Collins-Davenport. The organization provides free music programs for young people, and their appearance on the show highlighted the positive impact that their programs have on the youth of Philadelphia.
Actor and musician Kevin Bacon, who is a long-time supporter of Rock to the Future, also made an appearance on the show. Bacon's involvement with the organization includes collaborations on music projects and upcoming performances.
Rock to the Future's programs offer music education, mentorship, and social services support, all at no cost to over 700 youth in Philadelphia. Their offerings include guitar, bass, drums, piano, music production, original songwriting, and live performance. By providing safe spaces for students to learn and create, the organization helps build social and intellectual capital, life skills, and personal well-being.
Rock to the Future's appearance on the Kelly Clarkson Show and the support of Kevin Bacon showcase the organization's commitment to empowering young people through music.
As Kevin Bacon notes, “the goal isn’t to make them the next rock stars, but it’s to make them feel like the next rock stars.” The Bacon Brothers’ Six Degrees initiative shines a light on organizations like Rock to the Future, inspiring others to support their own communities.
“We’re proud to partner with Rock to the Future and help spread the word about their impact on young lives in Philadelphia,” said Kevin Bacon. “We hope this song and our collaboration will inspire others to learn more about the organization and support their mission.”
As the organization continues to grow and expand its reach, it is clear that their programs have a positive impact on the youth of Philadelphia. We can't wait to see what exciting collaborations and performances are in store for Rock to the Future in the future!
