Albany Teens Win Grammy Contest !
Congrats to Lee Reh and Rah-mene McDuffie, who record under the name Young Noble Gentlemen, they won the national Above The Influence contest. This comes with a prize package that includes $5,000 cash and tickets to the 58th annual Grammy Awards.
They came in first place competing with teens all across the nation. If you want to check out the duos song you can listen to it here.
“I’m overwhelmed,” say Reh.
“It still doesn’t seem really, but I’m still really excited because I know it is,” says McDuffie.
Because the duo won’t receive their cash prize until they go to Los Angeles, supporters have started an online campaign to raise $6,000 to pay for airfare, lodging and other expenses for the boys and those accompanying them. As of this afternoon more than $3,000 has been pledged.
The most amazing thing about this song is Leh Reh, didn't even speak English one year ago. If you want to help the duo make the trip to LA you can check out their go fund me page here.
