Brooklyn, NY- Lea Robinson, who’s one of the co-stars on Bravo Tv’s First Family of Hip Hop and who’s the granddaughter of Sylvia Robinson showed the audience why although she’s an heir to her family she’s also carving out a lane of her own.
Sylvia Robinson founded Suga Hill Records back in 1979 and is widely known as the originator of the hip hop music genre. These are large shoes to fill but Lea lived up to everyone’s expectation.
Prior to her performance the 23 year old singer/song writer, and dancer, sat in front of the students during rehearsals to share encouraging words and why she was excited to be there performing for them. The students responded with excitement for her anticipated performance and passed around the mic to share with Lea and others their talents of what they’ll be showcasing in the show.
What began as a dreary Thursday evening ended as a lit one proceeding Lea coming through and lighting up the stage performing her new single ‘Hey Young Boy‘ at Progress High School’s annual talent show yesterday evening as their opening act. While watching the reaction from the captivated audience as Lea performed it was obvious that her talent for music runs deep. The show took place in the school’s auditorium and began promptly at 6 pm.
This act of philanthropy by Lea shows that no matter how big an artist may get giving back is what matters most.
