  • Timolin and Casey Cole with the Temptations Review

    Jennifer and Timolin and Casey Cole

    To carry on the legacy of their father, daughters Timolin Cole and Casey Cole established The Nat King Cole Generation Hope, Inc. The mission of generation Hope is to provide music education to children with the greatest need and fewest resources. Money’s raised for Generation Hope provides for instruction, mentoring and resources. The vision of Nat King Cole’s unforgettable legacy will ensure future generations are given the opportunity to learn and experience the joy of music. Generation Hope believes, “that every child should be exposed to music education. Studies have proven that participation in school music has a positive impact on areas considered outside the realm of music including dexterity, coordination, self-discipline, self-esteem, thinking skills, listening skills, creative abilities and personal expression.” www.natkingcolegenhope.org

    Recently I attend a fundraiser supporting The Nat King Cole Generation Hope, Inc. Although the event was highlighted by the Temptations Review, students who benefitted from the Generation Hope program were the stars. These students who were once cast aside as unable to learn found joy in music and because of the exposure to music provided by Generation Hope, they found their inner talents and learned to excel academically and musically.

    This is a great program to help our young people be productive in their academics. Financial contributions enable more students who are in need to be exposed to music. Make your tax deductible contributions today at: http://www.natkingcolegenhope.org/
