Aspiring 2B A Better Me benefit concert shines spotlight on domestic violence

Aspiring 2B A Better Me benefit concert was held Saturday May 7 at Nineteenth Street Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.   Grammy winner Yolanda Adams, Stellar Award Winner and Baltimore native, Jessica Greene and recording artist CAS performed for the event.

Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.

Aspiring 2B A Better Me™ is a Counseling/Mentoring Program that helps families of domestic violence rebuild their lives. The benefit concert series helps support domestic violence survivors and their families. Funds raised from this concert will go to support The L.M. Foundation’s development of Aspiration House™, a transitional home in Prince George’s County. The shelter and safe-haven will house up to 25 families who are survivors of domestic violence.   The concert kicked off with CAS. Next up was Stella Award winner Jessica Greene. The singer whose vocal acutity was on full display is scheduled to release new music in September.
