Singer-mentor Patti Austin to be Inducted Into Hollywood Bowl’s Hall of Fame

Recognized as a tireless philanthropist and artist, Patti Austin will be inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame at the Hollywood Bowl opening night. Steven Tyler, Joe Perry & John Legend will also be honored as inductees.

Grammy Award winner Patti Austin is being inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame along with three other artists—John Legend, Steve Tyler and Joe Perry—in a benefit concert to be held on June 22, 2013 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. The 14th Annual Hall of Fame Concert will benefit the LA Philharmonic's Education Research Program. It commences in June and will feature the four inductees performing with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra under the baton of conductor Thomas Wilkin. Tickets are available here.

The Hollywood Bowl is the largest outdoor amphitheater in the United States and is located right in the heart of LA's Hollywood, California. It has been the venue for many of the world's finest performances since its inception in 1922. Each year organizers fete musical legends by featuring them in a concert ushering in a new season and inducting the performing artists into the Hall of Fame.

The program will highlight Ms. Austin's career, from starting her singing career at the age of four to becoming a philanthropist through her Blue Movement (a cause to end domestic violence against women, children and men) and Over My Shoulder Foundation 'OMSF' (a non-profit organization that promotes mentoring through music and design).

Ms. Austin personifies the mission of OMSF — to break down cultural and age barriers to facilitate self-empowerment and transference of knowledge between the disciplines of music and design — as she herself has benefited from mentoring and, in return, has mentored younger artists in various ways. Ms. Austin calls this "Mentorology" — a term she and co-founder Dawn Carroll coined to describe the OMSF mission. Among Ms. Austin's distinguished mentors are notable legends Quincy Jones and Dinah Washington.

This year's Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame Concert is being organized by producers Wayne Baruch and Charles F. Gayton, whose attention was caught by the music video of Over My Shoulder. The song Over My Shoulder was written by Dawn Carroll, Charlie Farren, Brynn Arens and Barry Orms.
