“The issues that we fight today won’t get resolved if voters stay silent. We need to use our power to build a better future for us all.” -RubyGld Smoke

When schools are facing difficult budget challenges, it is no secret that art and music programs are typically the first, if not only, programs to be cut. This trend is especially prevalent in at-risk communities, where there is even more of a need for a safe and creative environment in which students can express themselves. Funds are often times allocated to help other school programs grow and advance, while art departments are left behind and remain stagnant, especially when it comes to technological and industrial advancements. Symphony Of Change was created to help push the importance of keeping, and growing, music programs in schools and to foster the education and creative expression of students across the country. With a team of award-winning artists, musicians, and educators, Symphony Of Change strives to build a nationwide movement that focuses on the importance of music programs and redefining classical training.

Entertaining the masses with their retro pop music and making marriage look sexy again is only a slice of what this iconic power couple has to offer. Terrance and Dani Jo Williams (RubyGld Smoke) are the entrepreneurs of Quiet Kingdom Recordings and Quiet Kingdom Media Group (film company). The duo is also the founder of Symphony Of Change Inc. – an arts education organization dedicated to equitable arts enrichment programs throughout the US. When Dandria Dani Jo Williams met her husband T. L. Williams in early 2014, it was clear from the jump they were made to do something big together. Their undeniable chemistry was evident even as T. L. embarked on an initial solo career, garnering over 3 million streams with hits like “Gettin Mo Money Than You” and “Melanin.” Meanwhile, Dani Jo was a behind-the-scenes contributor through the entirety of T. L.’s 6 album solo run, co-writing songs and adding vocals. The couple, feeling like it was finally time, has now come out front together with an eclectic mix of pop-soul energy a la “Rose Royce.” The two are completing their forthcoming debut entitled Revolutionary Love, set for release on their label Quiet Kingdom Recordings in 2021.
