LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – With each stroke of a drum, young musicians are beating the odds thanks to their instructor, Ed White.
Some of the musicians where once considered troubled youth, but the credit White for helping them find their rhythm.
“He’s taught me how to read, rudiments, everything that you can, anything,” Allen explained.
“We’ve got our young boys who are so angry that they’re sending each other to the grave and the jail,” White told the crowd.
White founded RCDC 22 years ago, witnessing hundreds of children succeed.
“So we can say for that, free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last,” White said.
