It was special night of human trafficking awareness as Telos Entertainment Group presented the Not For Sale concert event last Wednesday night, March 21, 2012 at the Avalon in Hollywood.
The sold out concert featured a diversity of music acts such as Boyce Avenue, Satellite, Tournament of Hearts plus well known artists on Youtube such as Joseph Vincent, Clara C and hailing all the way from Australia, Jayesslee.
Going past the red carpet on to celebrity lounge, this reporter and affiliate Chris Trondsen of Pacific Rim Video / Front Row Features were able to take a moment with celebrity guests and performers to talk about the successful benefit concert.
Celebrity guest Cathy Nguyen came out to support all her Youtube music artist friends along with the fight against human trafficking. Jayesslee had the same resounding reason to be out at the concert. “We were part of a Not For Sale event last year and glad to lend our support to this concert also,” said Jayesslee.
Music artist and former Billboard’s Battle of The Bands contestant AJ Rafael, was singularly excited to meet up with Jayesslee after working with the twin sister music act while he made an appearance in Australia. AJ also wanted to show support for Joseph Vincent who is part of this year’s Billboard’s Battle of The Bands. Rafael also urged his fans to vote for Vincent at billboard.com
For Joseph Vincent, it was one of his first time performing with a full band. Bringing a bit of a throwback from the N’ Sync days, the recent college graduate performed the song and illustrated a little dancing on stage.
Clara C was excited to see that the benefit concert was able to bring a mix of different bands to support the fight against human trafficking.
Closing out the night was Boyce Avenue.
