. . . the Cinderella Slipper™ girls

ari-bam“A unique label finding it’s inspiration from the simple words of a young cheerleader at an inner city summer camp for at-risk teen girls. A label of fresh breaths – long on hope, tears and visions. Hit Records Worldwide is the newest guardian of the dream called, music. Hit Records is home to the Cinderella Slipper™ project. It’s about more than just the music.”  — CEO, Hit Records Worldwide

. . . a very special Saturday

FullSizeRenderHRW’s artist, Shayla (of Cargo Planes) and it’s CEO attended an event about how to live a successful life for a group of at-risk teen girls presented by a unique non-profit organization helping kids for 14 years, Daughters of Destiny. In attendance were many young ladies that live at a group home foster care facility and the young ladies enrolled in the Daughter’s programs.

.

Shayla gave an emotional ad-lib talk about never giving up hope to the young teen girls after learning were they were from. For you see Shayla herself had lived in the same home as they now do for three years and recounted some raw feeling as if they were only yesterday – bringing the CEO close to tears.

.

Next week Hit Records Worldwide will speak with the group home concerning a very talented young lady that stays with them. Hopefully, all goes well.

.

During the event one of the young ladies (not affiliated with foster care) keep coming up to the table were the CEO was sitting – must have been half a dozen times at least. She wanted to say something to him but didn’t quite know how to go about it. It was cute.

.

The CEO finally asked her to sing. She sang a song she had written and she is now the newest member of HRW’s “Artist Development” program. Her name is Najma. She is a senior at Blake Performing Arts High School in the music theater program.

cheermain-1

Hit Records Worldwide started as a Summer Camp  initially designed to help break the teen pregnancy cycle by giving young ladies growing up in the inner-city  higher self-esteem and empowerment; and most of all – a fighting chance at living their dreams. The first camp was  held for youth cheerleaders that were part of an inner-city football team in Tampa, Florida.When the young ladies at the camp were asked what their dreams were over 70% responded “to become a famous singer.”

. . . the more we think about it; it’s not as if we actually just throw our hands up in the air one day and announce to the world, “I give up on this stupid dream.” 

Ashley Tampa

No, its not really like that at all.

It is more that we allow our dreams to slowly be ground away; almost unnoticed, a day at a time, a hope at a time.

We at Hit Records Worldwide will protect that dream of yours, nurture it, and more importantly, provide the brute courage for you to jump up in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
