On Tuesday, January 24, at the General Provision Downtown in Fort Lauderdale, the Business for the Arts of Broward (BFA) hosted a live presentation, meet & greet, and cocktail hour with Emmy-nominated recording artist Alexander Star for their Arts Mean Business Speaker Series(AMB).
Born in Pennsylvania, raised in Tennessee, and now residing in Fort Lauderdale, Alexander Star has performed in more than 10 countries, including the United Nations headquarters, and participated in Super Bowl LIV campaigns with NFL Stars Larry Fitzgerald, Jarvis Landry, and Mark Sanchez. With a passion for making a social impact through his music, Star has helped over 500 teens in foster care write and record original music via his proprietary ‘Impact Songwriting’ workshops.
“Music is the kind of medicine people enjoy taking, so I write prescriptions based on the symptoms around me,” said Star.
