This group only came together a year ago as they all stayed at the same resident and they all shared similar sentiments about education and music

The trio said they will love for young people to also have a qualification because education is as important as anything in this new world of technology.
The youngsters come from different backgrounds and all walks of life and they were brought together by music and education. They believe in reaching for the stars and using what they know best to their advantage.
