Emerging Leader’s Passion for Music and Teaching is Changing Young Lives

Performing and teaching artist Andrew Gibson has worked on albums and shared stages with Grammy winning artists such as Nelly, Lauryn Hill, Snoop Dogg, Huey Lewis and the News, and many more.

Yet none of that is more important to him than the creative collaborations he continues to have with countless numbers of underserved youth in St. Louis, Mo.

In July 2020, Gibson was awarded a We Raise Emerging Leader Grant for sharing his music, teaching, and leadership skills at the Freedom Arts and Education Center in St. Louis, where he is the executive director.

We work hand in hand with Christian nonprofits to end poverty, violence, and inequality in our communities. Take action today and raise up those in need.
