State Farm® reinforces its commitment to Hispanic Youth with “Sounds of mi Vecindario” campaign
For the second time around serving as the spokesperson for the State Farm program – “Celebrity Music Teacher for a Day” Gustavo Galindo, along with State Farm agents, will have the opportunity to visit various predominantly Hispanic high schools in six markets throughout the nation including New York, Chicago, Miami, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The kick-off event will be held at New York City’s DeWitt Clinton High School. Galindo’s 2011 debut album “Entre La Ciudad y El Mar” climbed the Billboard Latin charts, debuted as the #1 Latin Top Pop album on iTunes Latino and was nominated for a Grammy in 2012 under The Best Latin Album category.
Galindo will be sharing with approximately 100 students from DeWitt Clinton High School. The lesson plan includes an overview of Galindo’s song-writing process, key learnings about “making it” in the music industry, and a live acoustic performance. Working hand-in-hand with the schools’ music teachers, Galindo’s visits have been structured to be entertaining and motivating, while encouraging students to drive safely and stay in school. At the end of his performance, students will have the opportunity to ask questions and enjoy an autograph-signing and photo session with Galindo.
