Video Birthdays Announcement and First Installment

Video Birthdays

I recently participated in an after-school program at R. S. Payne called Payne Academy. On segment of each class was called Video Birthdays, which exposed young minds to many different types of music and musicians.

The rest of us may benefit as well from seeing/hearing some new music, so I will bring Video Birthdays to the masses.
