My name is Kevin Jönsson and I'm a rapper under the name "Kevin Jazz". I'm 17 years old and I live in Sweden.
Music has always been my escape since I had a tough childhood. My mom's an alcoholic and I never knew my dad since he's been in and out of prison my whole life. It's always been a struggle and I could easily have walked the wrong path in my life to end up as a criminal. But luckily I didnt. I can straight up say that music saved my life, that's why I'm going all in for it.
A while ago I entered a competition by a hip hop platform called "TeamBackPack" where I uploaded a video of me rapping. The people really liked it and I won the competition for that specific week. I was super happy and I didnt even think about the next step; that I could actually get invited to Los Angeles.
Now I recieved an email with a formal invitation to LOS ANGELES to compete in the World Underground LA 2017. This is really a big opportunity for me, but since I live so far away from LA, the trip will be too expensive for me. I live at a foster family and it's been that way for 2 years. However, they didnt want to help me out with this trip. So I'm doing everything I can to it on my own. I took a job at McDonalds but I wont be able to get enough money for the trip until June.
This is literally the biggest opportunity of my life! If I win the competition I will get to have meetings with record lables and I can get out of my sticky situation. This is my only shot, and I really need to take it!
That's why I need YOUR help!
The event is in early June so there's not much time left! Any donation is appreciable, everything between $1 to $10 000. Anything is acceptable! And everything will sure help!
