Kashif creates public service announcements about foster care


National Foster Care Month
Internet Video Magazine, May 15, 2007.

Kashif
R&B Producer/Musician and Recording Industry Entrepreneur


It is a short subway ride from Brooklyn’s ghetto to the famed Radio City Music Hall. For foster care alum Kashif, this would become the journey of a lifetime transporting him from the despair of his childhood into the brilliant limelight of center stage.

Never knowing his real parents, Kashif endured an early life of abandonment and abuse. He grew up in eight different foster homes in the poorest neighborhoods of Brooklyn.

Kashif overcame the challenges of his childhood to become a versatile musical performer and the accomplished record producer behind the smash hits of Whitney Houston, George Benson, Barry White and Lil' Kim earning him six Grammy nominations and induction into the R&B Hall of Fame as a “Living Legend.”

Today, this multimedia entrepreneur (and single parent of two adopted sons) is helping other foster children find a better life through his iCare Foundation and as a spokesperson for National Foster Care Month.

To kick-off the Foster Care Month celebration in May, Kashif has produced three new public service announcements to inspire many more people to do something positive that will change a lifetime for America’s 513,000 children and youth in foster care.

Available spots:
· In the Lab (:30)
· I Wanna Be Just Like Them (:30) featuring former Miss Black USA Venice Manuel
· Spark of Life (:30) starring LA Sparks star Tamika Jackson
