GREIBO ENTERTAINMENT WINS TELLY AWARD FOR COLLABORATION WITH EX MUSIC GROUP, JERMAINE UNIQUEYE AND CHRISTOPHER ERVIN TO RAISE FUNDS FOR YOUTH EDUCATION, PROGRAMS AND SUMMER JOBS IN BALTIMORE
May 9, 2016, Baltimore, Maryland – Today, greiBO CEO, Shelonda Stokes, and members of Ex Music Group were featured on Fox45 to showcase greiBO’s social responsibility project – Week 18, Baltimore Human. Reliving the moments of April 27, 2015 – just 18 weeks into 2015, Baltimore was on the front page of every newspaper. Like many other areas with significant poverty, a group of people stood up to say, “enough is enough”. Some called it riots, others uprising and some even civil unrest. The bottom line… Baltimore was a City divided and needed help.
Two of greiBO’s partners, Davis Grei and Darryl Pearson produced a video using imagery from Jermaine UniqueEye, Christopher Ervin and others to capture the moments and the overwhelming feelings of the City. The goal was to raise funds for the next generation – to help promote a better tomorrow. The song by Ex Music Group highlights the concept of humanity. After all… we're only human. greiBO submitted the video for consideration to one of the most prestigious awards organizations for film and video production, The Telly Awards. Two weeks ago, greiBO was notified that THEY WON!! Out of 13,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents, their song and video of images from the unrest won a bronze Telly in the music video and social responsibility categories.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake designated April 27, 2016 as “A Day of Reconciliation” in Baltimore and the video was featured as part of the celebration. During that event, greiBO initiated the campaign One Dollar for One Baltimore with the goal of raising $100,000 for education, after school programs and summer jobs for Baltimore's youth. The fundraising will culminate at the at the 2016 African American Festival, hosted by Mayor Rawlings-Blake and the City of Baltimore with a live performance by Ex Music Group. This free cultural festival welcomes over 200,000 attendees annually and takes place this year July 2-3, at the Camden Yards Sports & Entertainment Complex.
Ex Music, will serve as the opening act for the festival’s main stage on Sunday afternoon. Their name represents growing from what they use to be… ex- drug addicts, ex-offenders, ex- abuse victims. “The significance of engaging Ex for the festival and for this piece is synonymous to the climate in Baltimore. We’re not where we used to be and with the right partnerships and support, the sky’s the limit of where we’re heading,” said Shelonda Stokes, CEO of greiBO.
