ND’s YOLA Meeting Inspired Festival

Thought this was interesting and sweet-in a new interview with Rolling Stone,”The Tonight Show” bandleader Rickey Minor reveals that he was inspired by No Doubt’s meeting with Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles students earlier this year to create a soul music festival that would benefit music education;the result is the Global Soul Festival,which will take place at the Hollywood Bowl this upcoming Sunday. It’s awesome to think Gwen and the guys inspire not only their fans,but fellow musicians,as well. 🙂

The concert was the brainchild of Tonight Show bandleader Rickey Minor. After watching a meeting between Gwen Stefani and the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA), Minor had an idea for a soul music celebration that would benefit music education. “[So] I called Stevie Wonder after seeing the kids and said, ‘Listen, I’m thinking about getting a music festival, would you do it with me?,'” Minor tells Rolling Stone. “He said yes and from then on everything else just kind of fell into place.”
