Check out an inspiring and motivational speech delivered by Ashton Kutcher at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards the other night.  Where he reveals his real first name and shares with the kids three valuable pieces of advice.  Not only for the teens in the audience, but for all of us to think about and consider.

Harlem’s Gospel for Teens Headed for the Bigscreen

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment are developing a feature film based on the 60 Minutes segment Gospel for Teens.  Gospel for Teens is about a group of teens in Harlem who overcame their personal struggles through the art of gospel singing.The 60 Minutes segment followed Lesley Stahl.  She spent a year trailing accomplished gospel singer  Vy Higginsen.  Vy started the program with the intention of preserving the art form by introducing it to a young generation.  She expected her students to leave their problems at the door and focus on the music. She discovered that kids were unable to separate themselves from their problems at home but soared once they revealed and dealt with their problems.
