He's trying to reach young people through music.
Georgia Music Association founder Henry Thomas organized several community events over the summer to combat violence, drugs, gangs, and even poverty.
This fall, he's planning to get local artists together for more events to continue that effort.
"Our youth are our future and we're bringing organizations and churches together so we can show them there's a better way than gangs, drugs and violence," said Quincy Smith, Georgia Music Association.
"We wish everyone would come out we need financial support, volunteers and we want to be able to pack that house, we've got a great show in store," Henry Thomas, Georgia Music Assn. Founder & CEO.
The first event is a free talent showcase on Friday November 6 at Monroe High School, doors open at 6pm.
