AngelStreet mentors girls by providing musical training in communities with limited artistic opportunities.

We seek to empower young women to understand their value, discover their purpose, and become creatively equipped to serve the Memphis community as leaders.

AngelStreet is available to girls ages 8-18 from several schools in the North Memphis community. Auditions are held at the beginning of every fall semester. The AngelStreet experience is an outlet of creativity that strives to invest in young artists to encourage, nurture, and develop deep desires for furthering education. Just as sports teams instill confidence and discipline for many youth in our city, AngelStreet has a desire to do the same through music.
