Ninety3Impact is a live music showcase that centers around social impact and artist stories. Each show has a purpose, a community, or a cause behind it. We are looking to create an experience that gives more of a purpose behind the everyday entertainment we all choose to partake in.
THE MENTAL HEALTH SERIES is a reoccurring showcase dedicated to fighting the stigma around mental illness and creating unique live experiences to better connect with others passionate about mental health. Each artist is specifically curated as they are already outspoken proponents of mental health and use their music a tool for change in this conversation.
A portion of this shows proceeds will automatically go towards NAMI Westside LA - the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI provides education, support, and advocacy to improve the lives of those living with mental illness, as well as their families and friends, mental health professionals, and all who share NAMI’s vision and mission.

Michelle Young + The Collection - Michelle Young and the Collection is a Los Angeles-based band, led by lead singer and poet Michelle Young with collaborator and co-writer Tony Schmitz on keys. The Soulful Alt-Rock group's live shows are more of an experience than a typical show--of the shows, Michelle says,
"Our desire is that audiences walk away with the knowledge that they are not alone, and it's okay to be human. We live in a crazy world and we're all trying to work through our humanity. We want to work through it together.”
On that note, Michelle is also an advocate for mental health issues on social media, in the art she creates and through community involvement. She spent 4.5 years working in the field of psychology as a Behavioral Therapist, 10 years as a mentor for youth and young adults (ages 4-29), was raised by a pastor and businessman who also has a mental illness, and has committed her life to building community, supporting artists and using the arts to give back. Tony has worked with kids for 15 years, developing IEPs (Individualized Education Programs) for those with challenges with learning in typical school environments, and also loves to spend what time he can coaching soccer.
X.ARI - It is X. ARI’s mission to not only raise awareness about mental health but to also focus on using her platform to empower others to turn their pain into power. Musically, X. ARI deftly dances in and out of genre lines, from entrancing alt-pop to gritty hip-hop to electronic elegance. At the same time, her visceral lyrics transmit messages of hope as often as they ponder tragedy. It is the mixture of those two elements when X.ARI’s sound and voice come to life.
