4C the Power! An Unforgettable Day 4 ALL!
Written by admin on September 11, 2009
The mission of 4C the Power is to build communities through the arts, education and entertainment.  On Sept. 5, 2009 in San Gabriel, California that is EXACTLY what happened.  Coming together were professional artists/industry and youth from the community  with the help of a local community based organization, The Asian Youth Center. Youth were mentored and taught by the Far*East Movement (Prohgress, KevNish, JSpiff, DJ Virman), WongFu Productions (Philip Wang, Wesley Chan, Ted Fu), David Choi, Shinobi Studios (Garrick Fujii, Henry Ly), FR*A (Daniel Cho, Daniel DPD Park) and DopeKidsFresh (John Kevin Gabrillo, Danie Chang). Artists showing their support of 4C the Power by coming to see the youth during their workshops and watching their showcase was KevJumba, GLP (Gabe Bondoc, Leejay, Passion). The Asian Youth Center is a non-profit, community-based organization serving the social services needs of youth and families, with a focus on Asian immigrants. The programs enable those served to adapt and contribute to a multi-cultural society.  John Tu Tong, Coordinator, was instrumental in 4C the Power workshops being a great success.  His help with all the facilities and equipment at the AYC was invaluable! Here are some great pics by Shinobi Studios. They not only took pics of 4C the Power but also taught a workshop.  We are so proud to partner with Shinobi Studios because they are awesome mentors and truly understand and are a part of the MOVEMENT!
