CAPA Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to generating sustained support for the Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA). As Philadelphia’s premier arts magnet high school, CAPA offers majors in Creative
Writing, Dance, Instrumental music, Media, Theater, Visual Arts, and Vocal music. CAPA Foundation was launched in 2014 with support from CAPA alumni Questlove and Black Thought of The Roots in response to massive budget cuts.
Presented by CAPA Foundation with support from Boot and Saddle, this show will feature some of CAPA’s talented alumni. Join us and show your support for arts education in Philadelphia. Featured performers include Boy Wonder, Cole., and Charrity Nangle. Visit capa-foundation.org for more information about the Foundation or email email@example.com if you are interested in performing or presenting at future alumni events.

Pop/R&B artist, Jeremy Cole has been a long time in the making. Born and raised in Wilmington, DE, Jeremy basically grew up on the stage. Most of his influences came from Pop, R&B, Rock, and Country music from the 80s and 90s. A graduate of the Creative and Performing Arts High School in Philadelphia (the same school that produced Boys II Men, Questlove, Bilal, and Jazmine Sullivan, among others), Jeremy relocated to NYC at the young age of 18 initially to study acting. He stayed after signing his first management deal at the age of 20, eventually calling Brooklyn home. He has appeared on NBC's hit, "The Voice" and is a veteran of television's legendary "Showtime at the Apollo". He is also a former session singer for Cynthia Biggs(co-writer of Patti LaBelle's "If Only You Knew), and a one-time background singer for Elisabeth Withers (star of Broadway's "The Color Purple"). He has appeared at numerous venues throughout NYC and nationally, and was also featured on house dj/producer, Benji Candelario's record, "Some Songs". Jeremy's debut singles and videos, "Can't Crash" and "I Want Your Body" were both released in 2011.
In just a few short years, Boy Wonder has become one of Philadelphia's most promising and interesting young artists delivering a high energy blend of Pop Music that blends Funk, Rock, Soul, Blues, Hip-Hop and Jazz.
