American Idol, Ayla Brown Visits Club

American Idol, Ayla Brown Visits Club - This past weekend, Country Music singer, Ayla Brown visited Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester to spend time with the lucky winners of the “Ayla Brown” live auction package from the Club’s Annual Grand Drawing Fundraiser. Ayla spent the day mentoring the three lucky winners, shared her experience in the industry, and what it takes to become a singer. With Ayla’s help the teens wrote and recorded their own song “Just Can’t Get Over it” within just a few hours. With the help of Ayeisha Mathis, the Club’s Music Director, the group recorded and mixed the song within the Music Clubhouse. Congratulations to the three lucky singers and thanks to Ayla for her support of the Boys and Girls Club.
