ATLANTA - Middle School Jazz Musicians Give Back Through Music: They're some of the finest young musicians in North Georgia, and with their new CD, the Inman Jazz All-Stars are proving they're fine young human beings, too.
The Inman Middle School students, under the direction of Ms. Arneesa Woods, recently released All Of Us, a collection of six classic jazz songs. The idea for the CD came about when student Jay Hammond played at an event for Citizen Advocacy, an organization dedicated to enable those with developmental disabilities and integrate them into communities. Hammond's father, John, is a board member for Citizen Advocacy, and he and Jay came up with the idea to record a CD to benefit the agency. The result is All Of Us -- which is on-sale now and which benefits both Citizen Advocacy and Inman Middle School's Jazz Band Program.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken recently stopped by the school, and chatted with those who made this dream project a reality. For more information click here.

We've watched over the years as he graduated from high school and college. He shows us how the wheelchair he lives with now never ties him down. Ron Gant caught up with Crane recently and tells us how he's using his own experience to help others. Click here to see the story.
