Shy B Joins the Lineup of "Redemption Song"
We are honored to announce that this dynamic performer and community leader has joined our lineup for Redemption Song.
Shy B is a uniquely gifted hip hop artist whose musical genius is matched only by the depth and honesty of his lyrics and his testimony.
Shia Blakeney's story of Redemption is hard won and deeply inspiring. He turned his life around from addiction and heartache a few short blocks from the Actor's Gang theatre, at Beit T'shuvah, a full-service Jewish temple that is also a residential rehab center. He is now the protege for Rabbi Mark Borovitz, and is a tireless spiritual councilor at Beit T'shuvah. Tomorrow night, he will be performing a piece off of his album "Rebel Spirit".
We are proud to support Homeboy Industries and Beit T'shuvah with this event and are grateful to have such an articulate model for Beit T'shuvah in the figure of Shy B.
Redemption is not an abstract concept where these leaders work...we hope that through this event our audiences will become inspired to support the redemption that is offered up Beit T'shuvah, every day.
