In this segment, correspondent Tom Wilmer visits with Grammy-winning producer Andreao 'Fanatic' Heard in Greensboro, North Carolina. They talk about the newly-released album, "Artists United to End Poverty," co-produced with Thomas 'JT' Johnson, Reynard Pringle and Michael Cottingham. The album features a breadth of musical idioms performed by 51 Greensboro regional artists, and album sale proceeds go directly to United Way of Greater Greensboro's quest to end poverty. Heard is founder of the non-profit Culture Pushers, which advocates for the creative community through financial assistance, counseling, wellness, and access to industry mentorship experts.
