Singer-songwriter Victoria Shaw unveils new music project for New Orleans youth

NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – New Orleans is famous for jazz, but now the Country Music Association is putting its boots on the ground in a big way.

They're investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in making sure every kid in the city can play the music they love.

Superstar singer-songwriter Victoria Shaw stopped by the Twist set to tell us how.

Shaw, who wrote hits like “I Love the Way You Love Me,” said the CMA Foundation is donating to three organizations - VH1 Save the Music, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation and Notes for Notes.

Notes for Notes built a music studio inside the Boys and Girls Club on Broad Street. The kids there can use the recording studio for free, and there are people there to show the kids how everything works.

Here’s Victoria Shaw performing “I Love the Way You Love Me”:
