The CYWA has been one of the cornerstones of Coatesville, helping women in need. Recently, CYWA launched a performing arts program called the House of Blues. Since its inception, because of limited resources, the House of Blues is having trouble effectively expanding the program to the community.

The group just migrated from Florida, where they were well known for their headliner performances.
Smith III has indeed performed for over 35,000 fans in Florida. The group became so popular that they wrote and recorded their first album called Diamond in a Rock. The album is fun, inspiring and talks about issues that faces today youth, such as poverty, abuse, and challenge for single parents. Since the release of Smith III’s new album earlier this year and the transition to a new market and new fan base, The Smith III has no fear in their talent to captivate Pennsylvania, and the U.S.
This was made clear with the performance at South Brandywine Middle School, Coatesville. “Their inspiring pop sound is exactly what these children need to start thinking about their future”, said Principal Mallozzi (former principal of South Brandy Wine). After which, they won Victory’s Got Talent in Philadelphia, PA.
Smith III has been making a big impression on children and adults alike. They were featured in Billboard Magazine, and were recently awarded 2013 awards of Excellence by Children Magazine.
