Using her music as her message… award-winning performer, songwriter, actress, mega social media influencer and philanthropist Montana Tucker will headline a multi-arts intergenerational Concert-4-KindnessTM for South Florida audiences. Tucker has 14 million social media followers, and has opened for icons like Jennifer Lopez (JLo), Flo Rida, Ciara and Pitbull. She and her dancers, students and community groups will perform songs, dances, instrumentals, poetry and videos, intermingled with “kindness” cameos by her friends in the arts and entertainment industry. Tucker was recently featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and other national media about retracing her family roots through “How To: Never Forget” a Holocaust docuseries for the TikTok Generation featured on TikTok, Instagram and Facebook and YouTube platforms to share what happens when bigotry goes unchecked. This time, she’ll light up FAU’s biggest stage with her resonating single “Be Myself” and her music videos… all produced to stand up and speak out against hate, bullying and discrimination, and advocate for better education and understanding to encourage unity and peace among her global fans, followers and beyond.

Who better to change the world than the next generation? 

Who better to invest in their leadership and platforms than our generation?

As we lose the generation who beared witness to injustice, bigotry and watershed events in history, who better than their Gen-Z grandchildren
to stand up and speak out against hate, bullying and discrimination, and advocate for better education and understanding to encourage unity and peace.​
