American Idol Finalist Nadia Turner Provides Artistic Guidance to Youth Groups
On March 23 the Green Family Foundation Initiative at the University of Miami partnered with local urban youth groups to host an "uncensored" expressive arts show on HIV/AIDS, violence and lifestyle issues.
Former "American Idol" finalist Nadia Turner, Miami Times Reporter David Ovalle and Miami New Times staff writer Francisco Alvarado were all on-site to offer artistic guidance to show participants, who performed original hip hop, poetry and dance choreography. FOX news stations "South Florida Today" also covered the event, which was also hosted by the University of Miami and Youth Expressions (YE).
The show brought together 200 attendees to watch performances from three organizations: YE (urban arts teen group), Baypoint School North (Department of Juvenile Justice residential facility) and Pridelines (GLBT youth).
