WELCOME AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
We are excited to announce the founding of the MaxSTAR Urban Arts Foundation (MUAF) a 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization. Founded by R&B legend Maxine Jones, formerly of En Vogue and business and community leader Brian Martin. MUAF’s mission is to provide arts education, food, equipment and mentoring to school-aged children of all ages in urban communities.
We’d like to offer you/your company an opportunity to become a part of our family of supporters for the launch of the MaxSTAR Urban Arts Foundation and the BriSTAR Soul Sessions Live Stream PPV concert series.
Your generous support will assist us in creating an open and safe space to celebrate music and the arts in a fully inclusive and accepting environment while raising money for youth urban arts programs and to support pro-equality social justice causes. The artists taking part in this monthly series are all committed to the fight for equality for all.
The COVID-19 Pandemic has forced the artistic community to find new and creative ways to entertain and engage our audiences. Livestream technology, creating top quality live productions with social distancing limitations, labor, staging, and production costs are high.
Maxine Jones and Brian Martin
