LIZ MORRISON, host:

On this day, in 2010, a group of young Atlanta rockers called Young Orchids broke into mainstream radio with their hit “Twelve Feet Tall”.

(Soundbite of song, “Twelve Feet Tall”)

Mr. KYLE GORDON (Singer): (Singing) We set the fires… we die alone.

MORRISON: Tonight, the band celebrates the day their first single hit the airwaves by hosting a charity event at the Fox Theatre.

Joining us is their manager and long-time friend, Luis Sandoval, to tell us more about this event.

Welcome to the show.

Mr. LUIS SANDOVAL: Thank you.

MORRISON: What is the purpose of the event tonight?

Mr. SANDOVAL: Well, the boys aren’t just musicians; they are compassionate artists as well. Now that they have become famous, they want to give back to the children of Atlanta through raising money for art programs in inner-city schools.

MORRISON: That’s wonderful. Is it open to the public and how much are tickets to the event?

Mr. SANDOVAL: Tickets are $500 and yes; it is open to anyone who wants to pay that much money.

(Soundbite of laughter)

MORRISON: For more information about the event, you can visit the event page linked to the bands’ Facebook. Mr. Sandoval, thank you for joining us.

Mr. SANDOVAL: My pleasure.
