In celebration of this holiday season, Disturbing Tha Peace Records R&B Superstar, Bobby Valentino has adopted 15 senior citizens and their families in his hometown of Atlanta, GA. On Friday, December 1st, Valentino will personally deliver vegetable baskets and a truckload of turkeys to the select families at the Harriet E. Darnell Multi-Purpose Center, located at 677 Fairburn Rd, Atlanta, GA 30331.
The 15 families chosen are senior community gardeners from the Atlanta Urban Gardening Program (AUGP), led by Valentino’s father, Bobby Wilson in partnership with the University of Georgia Extension Service. As a young kid, Valentino volunteered his time to the AUGP where he taught the youth and senior citizens how grow fresh vegetables, clean vacant lots for garden sites and help build self-esteem. Valentino has often related in interviews his continuous efforts as a young man to donate his time to senior citizens as a result of the difference the program makes in so many families’ lives.
Singing professionally since the age of 13, the world was first introduced to the sound of Bobby Valentino when he was the lead singer in Organized Noize’s teen vocal group Mista who’s debut single, “Blackberry Molasses” remains a classic to this day. After a highly successful debut album “Disturbing Tha Peace Presents Bobby Valentino” in 2004, Valentino is currently putting the finishing touches on his sophomore album, “Special Occasion”, due in stores on February 13th. With Valentino co-writing more than three quarters of “Special Occasion,” the new album also boasts songwriting and production credits from award winning hit makers such as Rodney Jerkins, Sean Garrett, Tim & Bob, Bryan Michael Cox and Dre & Vidal. Valentino’s evolution as one of the most respected songwriters and artists today will be undeniable once listeners get a glimpse of “Special Occasion,” arguably his best body of work to date.
