It was the night of nights for Musicians Making A Difference on Thursday 30th November when their young program participants were able to celebrate 2017’s year of hard work, perseverance and dedication to changing their lives for the better at their annual Red Carpet graduation evening.
This year’s Red Carpet saw 20 young people graduate from the Sony Foundation funded ‘Catch A Falling STAR’ program. Throughout the year, these promising young STARs had receiving intensive mentoring and support from Sony Music staff as they worked to overcome the traumas and negative influences that had prevented them from growing and creating positive change in their lives.
