T25CL Entertainment Produced a music concert at the Warner Grand Theater in Los Angeles, California. The Concert Features Jazz, R&B and African Rhythm. The performance was very exciting and unique with the combination of The African Drum and Dance combined with Jazz and R&B. Our show featured The Balle Fette Dance Troupe hailing from Senegal, West Africa, the melodic voices of Rosalyn Jordan-Mills, Brenda Lee Eager and Myron Edwins. The great guitarist Charles Small, the fantastic Saxophonist Mark Allen Felton and a taste of Old School with The Five Tempting Men.
There is also a story to the movie, The United Nations implemented a plan to eradicate One Billion people off of the poverty roles in 2015, commonly called the Millennium Development Goals. T25CL Entertainment was requested to do a performance based on these issues as it pertains to hunger, health and wellness, women’s’ rights, sustainable energy and education.
The featured countries are Senegal, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Malawi. We give special recognition to the Youth Development Ambassadors who are working directly with the issues in their respective cities and townships.
T25CL’s Global initiative is to utilize the common language of music and entertainment to bring hope to those who are seeking help in many ways. Often, governments ignore the real people issues in their countries and sell off their natural resources to major corporations and the wealth is retained by the ruling elite and the masses of citizens are ignored.
Let’s give Peace, Justice and Equality a chance, since all else has failed
Our film also features the story of Dr. Laura Stachel and her journey to combat maternal mortality in remote Africa and other parts of the world.
Dr. Laura E. Stachel is the co-founder of WE CARE Solar, is an obstetrician-gynecologist with fourteen years of clinical experience. She holds an M.D. from University of California, San Francisco and an M.P.H. in Maternal and Child Health from University of California, Berkeley. Shocked by the poor hospital conditions in Nigeria, Laura and her husband created We care Solar to offer hospitals “Solar Suitcases” which fuels reliable lights in hospitals and health care centers around the world. She is the recipient of multiple awards including the 2015 UN DESA “Powering the Future We Want” Award, the UCSF Alumni Award, the C3E Leadership in Developing Countries Award, and the Top-Ten 2013 CNN Heroes.
Childbirth in Darkness
Co-founder Dr. Laura Stachel went to Northern Nigeria in 2008 to study ways to lower maternal mortality in state hospitals. She witnessed deplorable conditions in state facilities including sporadic electricity that impaired maternity and surgical care. Without a reliable source of electricity, nighttime deliveries were attended in near darkness, cesarean sections were cancelled or conducted by flashlight, and critically ill patients waited hours or days for life-saving procedures. The outcomes were often tragic.
