The promising young jazz musician and recording artist, Michael Carter Jr., age 14, will perform a jazz concert and benefit in his home town of Woodbury, Minnesota on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 7:00 pm at the Central Park Amphitheater, located at 8595 Central Park Place. Tickets are $5 in advance or $10 at the door. A portion of the proceeds of this event will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
Michael recently released his album entitled, "The Future", on August 15, 2013. He followed the release with a live concert at Arnellia's Night Club in St. Paul. The show was a sell out and a great success. "I cannot believe a 14 year old can play jazz as well as Michael," stated one patron.
"After a number of Woodbury residents requested Michael to perform for the community, he thought a concert in his home town would be fun. So we, as a family, wanted to make it special by having a portion of the proceeds benefit JDRF," says Cheryle Carter, his mom and Communications Manager. "Michael Jr. is a type 1 diabetic. He is very committed to helping others with this condition especially those younger than him. According to JDRF, there are 95 families/individuals in the Woodbury area that have a direct connection/or child with type 1 diabetes. This is Michael's way of creating awareness of type 1 diabetes in our community while sharing his love for music," she continued
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF's goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until a world without T1D is achieved.
