Patti Austin on Good Day LA Tomorrow To Talk About “The Art of Mentoring”

By on Wednesday, January 27th, 2010 in News

Catch Patti Austin tomorrow morning, Thursday January 28th, on Good Day LA. Patti will discuss more about Mentorology (The Art of Mentoring).

Patti Austin says, “Mentoring began with my parents and then with Dinah Washington who brought Quincy Jones into my life”. Quincy was only in his twenties when he met Austin and now not only serves as her lifelong mentor but is also one of the important players in Harvard’s initiative. She has also asked Norman Lear to join the initiative. Norman Lear has been a long time mentor to diverse groups of all ages in his commitment to empower the individual to make a difference. She has also been recruited by Larry Balaban of “Baby Genius” to help his mission to get the learning/mentoring process going musically in pre-school kids.

Patti Austin, in her partnership with “The Foundation for Social Change” also hopes to join and recognize artists such as John Mayer, Mary J Blige, Chaka Khan, Randy Newman, Alicia Keys, Gloria Estefan, Sheryl Lee Ralph and many others who have made mentoring a priority in their lives.

Good Day LA airs from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM and is simulcast live on
