The gala benefited the foundation's Don't Stop the Music program, which is a curriculum based program providing recording studios in public schools to teach students song writing and music production.
In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Dallas shared why his foundation provides recording studios in schools:
"With me, I couldn't relate to school because I was so into music. Every child has a gift, and parents should be paying attention to that. With music, a lot of times they can't get the equipment. Having studios for them at school takes care of that problem. If you could see the turnaround rate and the excitement these kids have! It changes their lives around...they get interested in English, music, social studies. It gives them a way to express themselves." Visit the foundation website here.
