NEW YORK, NY, November 18, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- This year over 350 families in Virginia Beach, VA will kick-off the Season of Giving with a benevolent two-day 'Holiday Give Back' Event graciously provided by award-winning producer, composer and songwriter, Nate 'Danja' Hills and his thriving record label, New Age Rock Stars (N.A.R.S.). Since journeying from his coastal hometown to attain massive acclaim in the music industry, Danja has yearned to offer his hand to the disadvantaged families of his native section of Virginia Beach. Joined by the support of his record label family, including award-winning Recording/Mixing Engineer Marcella Araica, Grammy-Nominated Songwriter Kevin Cossom, Soul Train Award Nominee Luke James along with burgeoning talents Caligula and Wyld Money, this close-knit group will personally deliver heart-felt holiday cheer through this joyous occasion.
"For years I've wanted to give back and it is a huge achievement for myself and my N.A.R.S. team to be in a position to support a community that plays such a large part in who I have become. Way beyond anything I've accomplished in music, I've been blessed to be able to contribute and there is no greater feeling than returning to enrich the lives of those in my hometown. Friendship Village is the foundation of who I am," Danja explains.
The first day of this heart-warming celebration will commence on November 16th at 11:00AM at 1235 Friendship Square, Virginia Beach, VA. Danja will welcome members of the community of all ages to come together in fellowship as they gift packages filled with a traditional Thanksgiving meal and trimmings to each of the 115 families in residence. Partnering with his father's church, Advocate Gift of Life Ministries (2600 Mark Street Chesapeake, VA http://www.agolmi.org), nostalgic relationships will spark a momentous occasion in the spirit of gratitude.
On Saturday, November 17th at 1:00PM at Birdbeck Elementary School (957 South Birdneck Road, Virginia Beach, VA), N.A.R.S Records and local radio station WNVZ Z104 will reveal donations of over 250 complimentary turkeys for local families in need. In addition, giveaways will include N.A.R.S t-shirts and CDs from the label's talented recording artists. These generous donations will answer the prayers of many low-income families in this Virginia Beach neighborhood.
Danja enthusiastically proclaims, "I love this time of year and am excited that I can provide for my community. I lived in Friendship Village for 15 years and everyday I thank God for the prayers and support that I receive from back home."
Danja's commitment to his hometown extends beyond an occasional visit and this new tradition will cultivate a homegrown legend that will provide inspiration, optimism, and assurance for the people of Friendship Village. The altruistic actions of Danja and the N.A.R.S Records family embody their collective belief in uplifting those who have supported their success. They are overjoyed to be able to express their gratitude in a meaningful way and have a significant impact this holiday season and for years to come.
