Souljahz, School Out Reach

Jan 13, 2003 12:30 PM EST

Souljahz recently performed in 14 public high schools in hometown state California, sharing positive messages from their breakthrough debut album The Fault Is History.

Souljahz performed 30-minute concerts at high schools located in Santa Ana, Long Beach, Pasadena, Duarte, Van Nuys, San Diego, Sun Valley, El Cajon, Pomona, Encinitas, Paramount, and Los Angeles. Crowded assemblies of 13-18 year old students heard messages promoting racial equality as well as a song not on their current album called "Get Free" that promotes the need for education and staying in school. Souljahz also included a dance contest as part of their set.

Their music is powerful hip hop style and has good message about gospel for teenagers.

Souljahz made their debut performance at GMA 2002 with two show stopping appearances. On the strength of those performances, Souljahz was asked to appear at Nashville's River Stages and then spent the summer touring and opening for such acts as Ashanti, Third Day, and Jars of Clay. The group has appeared on MTV, CNN, performed on the One World Jam concert at Radio City Music Hall, and was included as part of a feature story in Seventeen Magazine.
