PRLog - Aug. 4, 2014 - MIAMI -- The Motivational Edge will present its second annual Student Showcase of Arts Excellence on Friday, August 8th from 5PM – 10PM. This event is free and open to the public to see the achievements of these students. This year’s event will be taking place at The Stage in Midtown Miami, located at 170 NE 38th St. Miami, FL 33137. The bold and spirited students will be showcasing original music pieces; including spoken word, rapping, singing, etc. These extremely talented boys and girls from Miami-Dade’s inner-city have been working tirelessly to hone and polish their performances and art pieces. Many of the presenting students come from our Lyrical Expression and Audio Recording Recording classes, which is available to them because of a generous grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation; all taking place at our newly renamed Irie Foundation Allapattah Music and Literacy Center.
