John Forte Making Live Return After Prison Stay
Best known for producing and co-writing tracks for The Fugees' multiplatinum album "The Score" as well as his two solo albums, "I, John" and "PolySci," John is back in the studio, working on his highly-anticipated new full-length album. He recently released a new song "Life Has Just Begun (Returning Home)" and appeared with Kweli on a remix of Kanye West's "Homecoming."
In addition to getting back on track with his own music, John will be working with In Arms Reach, a program committed to promoting a positive environment for children of incarcerated parents and at-risk youth. Beginning on March 31st, John will teach a twelve-week music course to students aged 12-15 years old at The City College of New York. Designed to use music as a therapeutic means of addressing anger, stress, and pain John hopes that the catharsis of song composition will help children deal with the stigma of having a family member who is incarcerated and rebuild the spirit of those who have been traumatized or abandoned.
