For the past three years, The Ken Ford Foundation (KFF) and How Big is Your Dream?! Foundation have been helping children realize their greatest life potential academically through exploring, mastering and guiding musical gifts and talents. Both Foundations have recognized the value of their causes by making this year's concert a collaborative effort for the community. Annette Davis Jackson, Executive Director of The Ken Ford Foundation states, "We have all seen a child skipping down the block, playing soccer, bouncing a basketball, painting their nails or even programming for a robotics competition. The focused attention and passion is undeniable. How Big Is Your Dream?! and KFF missions are complimentary, to ensure with a riveting quality, we carve out a path youth talent can follow to realize their dreams through music mastery." In addition, Ken Ford's motto for this event is" "Be Instrumental"
