How Does Music Empower Bill Carbone?

I was going to be a rock star, not a nonprofit leader. My musical consciousness blossomed in 4th grade—the late 80s. I still remember the first time I purchased my own music. It was two cassettes: Poison, “Look What the Cat Dragged In” and DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince, “He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper.”
