A Message from Rhenzy Feliz, alumnus, The Music Center’s Spotlight program (Acting, 2016)
Growing up, my family moved around a lot. I always had a love for being on stage, but it wasn’t until I was a teen and we moved to Los Angeles County that I became truly invested in acting and performed in my high school productions of The House of Blue Leaves and The Wizard of Oz.
In senior year of high school, I became a finalist in the acting category of The Music Center’s Spotlight program for young artists, which enabled me to further improve my acting skills. After high school, I was so excited to be cast in the show, Casual, and recently in the lead role in Marvel’s Runaways.
I am so grateful to The Music Center for nurturing my talent and the talents of thousands of other young artists through Spotlight. However, for The Music Center to continue supporting young artists like me, it needs our support now before its #30DaysofSpotlight Campaign ends.
Luckily, this coincides with the launch of The Music Center’s Facebook Donate button. Now it is easier than ever before to support The Music Center and The Music Center’s Spotlight program.
Acting in Runaways is the happiest I’ve ever been. I love to perform, and Spotlight was an important stepping stone in my career and the careers of thousands of other alumni.
The Music Center is hard at work to expand Spotlight, but the team is counting on supporters like you to help make the vision of reaching even more young people a reality.
With my sincere thanks,
Alumnus, The Music Center’s Spotlight (Acting, 2016)
