Trevor Jackson, Diggy Simmons, and Tinashe take the stage for a good cause at the 11th annual Peace on the Street Jam. The event, held in Philadelphia, is aimed at promoting anti-violence, and teaching youth how to keep their streets safe.
Hosted by Power 99 FM, the activities also included spoken word poetry, an inspiration key note address by Ulysses “Butch” Slaughter, and plenty of dance and music entertainment. “The Peace on the Street Jam series are perfect events for [the station] and its listeners to rally and help make Philadelphia a safer community. Power 99 FM is committed to being a strong community partner, and for 11 years the Peace on the Street Jams have made a positive impact on Philadelphia’s neighborhoods”, said Loraine Ballard Morrill, Director of News and Community Affairs for Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Philadelphia.
This is not the first anti-violence rally Trevor Jackson has taken part in. In 2013, he recorded a cover of Snoop Lion’s “No Guns Allowed”, as a show of support for the rappers anti-violence campaign. The 17-year-old performer has also participated in an event to fundraise for Cystic Fibrosis, hosted a Youth Empowerment summit, and has worked with NBA Cares and The League of Young Voters Education Fund.
