On May 13th, 2011, Jon Bon Jovi was sitting in a circle with about a dozen youth gathered in a small room at the Goodwill Career Center on Buford Highway.
Bon Jovi came to Atlanta, Georgia a day before his band’s scheduled performance at Philips Arena as part of his involvement with the White House Council for Community Solutions. The 25-member group was formed in December by President Obama to identify and address community needs.
Along with fellow council member Michael Kempner, CEO of the New Jersey-based public affairs and public relations firm MWW Group, Bon Jovi, a longtime philanthropist and creator of the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, has embarked on a series of listening sessions with youths from community-based organizations.
“We get to amplify their voices,” said Kempner.
Jon Bon Jovi has many business interests in Atlanta, Georgia, including becomming a partner in the Atlanta Falcons NFL football team.
