Corey Thornton Making A Difference Everyday!

My mission is to inspire, motivate and educate our youth through music. Many youth are exposed to violence and community influences that negatively effect their ability to make positive choices. I emphasize positive messages such as courage, confidence, respect, and honor using Hip Hop to translate these important qualities.
