For the launch of their LG Tone Free true-wireless earbuds, LG USA announces a partnership with After-School All-Stars and a group of professional basketball players on a six-week Songwriting Academy that will help students express their hardships through music. The students will be matched up with program mentors and music industry experts and J.R. Smith (Los Angeles), Talen Horton-Tucker (Los Angeles), Jordan Clarkson (Utah), Ben McLemore (Houston) and Darius Bazley (Oklahoma City) will also be engaging in Zoom conversations with the students during the program.
"ASAS closes the achievement gap for students living in communities plagued by racial inequity and lack of opportunity by providing free, high-quality academic and enrichment programs that set them up for success in school and in life. The respected organization collaborates with partners such as LG to offer students innovative programs that afﬁrm and develop their unique voices as future leaders.
