Announcing Coldplay’s involvement in the event benefiting the two LA-based youth charities, Senior Vice President of Programming, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment John Ivey stated, “It’s a special scenario for the Los Angeles radio stations and iHeartRadio to have an opportunity to collaborate with Coldplay to support the work of two great local organizations that directly impact the LA community. Coldplay in this intimate setting will be an amazing experience for the audience, plus concert-goers will be helping support LA’s at-risk youth.”
Per Clear Channel: “A Place Called Home provides a safe haven in South Central Los Angeles for underserved youth. They provide programs in education, arts and well-being to empower youth to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives. Youth Mentoring Connection matches at-risk youth with caring adult mentors to help them awaken to their power, unique gifts and purpose. The structured group dynamic provides the resources youth need to reach productive, conscious adulthood.”
