The 2nd Annual Valentines Gala features Lin Rountree, Randy Scott and Julian Vaughn

Well here’s a great idea for an even greater cause!! Come to enjoy the dynamic and soulful sounds of international Contemporary Jazz recording artists Julian Vaughn, Randy Scott, and Lin Rountree on Saturday, February 16th at the Edward Hotel in Dearborn as they perform for El Olam Cares’ 2nd annual Valentines Gala! There will also be a strolling buffet, silent auction, performances by our youth dance team and more…. and best of all proceeds from the Gala go towards scholarships for underprivileged youth in the Greater Detroit area to attend El Olam’s 2-day Dance intensive at COBO center in June.

El Olam Cares is a nonprofit organization founded in 2015 by Lin and Yolanda Rountree.  Its mission is to provide financially challenged individuals of all ages, including those who suffer from disabilities, with the resources needed to learn the art of Dance and acquire education in the health benefits found therein (mind, body, and spirit).

The ultimate goal of this gala is to raise enough funds to provide scholarships for 50 underprivileged youth from the Greater Detroit Area to attend the 6th annual El Olam 2 Day Dance and Music Intensive program on June 21 & 22, 2018.

“With his hip vibe and soulful sound, the fresh young artist brings the cool factor back to the genre”, says Trippin’ N Rhythm Records referring to Detroit based Lin Rountree. Born in New York City in 1971, the trumpeter and producer grew up in Alexandria, Virginia, where he began playing trumpet around age 11. A talented high school player, he participated in music programs offered through the Duke Ellington School for the Performing Arts and later honed his skills at Florida A&M University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. Also during this period, Lin continued to study the music of artists like Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard or Tom Browne. In 2005, he made his debut with “Groovetree” and returned with several more well-regarded albums that earned him 12 chart topping Billboard singles, including the Billboard #1 Hit “Pass The Groove” from his latest CD. The outstanding live performer has also collaborated with some of the industry’s top R&B/Contemporary Jazz artists, such as George Duke, U-Nam or Tim Bowman.
