Grammy helps spotlight arts/music education at Jefferson Center

Posted: Updated:
A Grammy win puts a local non-profit in the spotlight and raises awareness about arts and music education.

Singers Lalah Hathaway and Snarky Puppy won a Grammy for 'Best R&B Performance' for their song 'Something.' They performed the song at the Jefferson Center.

This is the first time the Jefferson Center has one a grammy for a performance done at the center's stage.

The song is on Snarky Puppy's Album 'Family Dinner Volume One."

Partial benefits from the album will go to the Jefferson Center's Music Lab, which prepares young people for a career in the arts.

"Music changes lives and the work we are doing in the Music Lab changes lives," Jefferson Center Artistic Director Dylan Locke says. "So, any recognition of the work we are doing we get excited about it."

The money will help the Music Lab give out scholarships for students, upgrade equipment, and possibly help with expansion.

The center is also considering mobile units where the music could be taken to schools or juvenile detention center.
