LRM's Red Carpet Interviews at the Gala

December 4, 2023

Find the exclusive carpet interviews from the event in the original article by Gig Patta. Here's an excerpt:

"In its annual gala, Get Lit honored renowned musician Anderson .Paak during the show.

The fundraiser and gala raised funds to increase literacy, mobilize youth and energize communities through poetry and visual media.

The attendees of the event included Get Lit founder Diane Luby Lane, Get Lit board member and All American actress Geffri Maya, National Youth Poet Laureate Salome Agbaroji, poet Angélica María, Snowfall actress Taylor Polidore, League of their Own actress Chanté Adams, and executives from WME and Vans.

The honoree Anderson .Paak is an eight-time Grammy winner, producer, songwriter, artist, and director. His 2020 single “Lockdown” is recognized as one of the best songs that year, including President Barack Obama’s annual favorite music list. He formed the R&B superduo Silk Sonic with Bruno Mars with the debut single “Leave The Door Open” in 2021 and received four Grammy Awards.

Get Lit is a Los Angeles-based education nonprofit organization founded in 2006 that promotes spoken word and visual media to improve literacy and empower youth and their communities. The after-school programs center on classic and contemporary poetry and multi-media expressions. Also, the program assists young people from the classroom to their careers through training with creative opportunities, internships, scholarships, and jobs. The organization offers opportunities for under-resourced young people to create community, transform their lives, and raise their authentic voices.

LRM Online’s Gig Patta was on the red carpet to speak with Anderson .Paak and other guests of the event."
