Young Eagles Success Club releases anti-violence DVD
Sounds of Good News (SOGN) Productions has announced the release of their Young Eagles Success (YES) Club kids’ first DVD release.
The “Piece for PEACE” is titled Fight Right! and consists of four chapters including workshops, TV news clips and the actual music video featuring the Young Eagles Soaring Inspirational Choir.
This project was released at the group’s Sixth Annual Dr. King Day Celebration at Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center. Community leaders, educators and parents are encouraged to purchase DVDs for youth as a direct intervention for the building of character excellence in children. Businesses may desire to make a charitable contribution for “gift” copies to needy students.
