Journalist Tamron Hall had told members of a New Orleans boys choir that she would help them win a $30,000 prize and she’s doing her part as promised.
Hall, who hosted the UNCF Mayor’s Masked Ball fundraising gala Saturday, March 17, posted a video on her social media pages of three members of The Royal Boys Choir explaining what they need to get the funds.
“These young men were courageous enough to politely ask me, proving never fear the word, ‘No.’ #sundaymotivation !!!” Hall captioned the video. “Please Listen closely and let’s lift them up. Love and hugs.”
“We have a chance to win $30,000,” one boy says in the clip. “All you have to do is vote for us at GulfBank.com/vote.”
Gulf Bank is awarding up to $75,000 in total grants to 10 local non-profits. Voting is open through Friday, March 29.
The mission of the choir made up of middle-school aged boys is “to foster musicality and self-confidence in urban young men and to evoke positive social change in our community through performances and mentorship.”
Many people were on board with helping the boys continue that mission and chimed in to let Hall know the choir had their vote.
“Done. Please let us know if they win!” someone wrote.
“Done! I’m rooting for you, young kings.😊,” said another
