    Buffalo, NY –New York State Senator Antoine M. Thompson (D-Parts of Erie & Niagara Counties), welcomes singer/songwriter, Lloyd and his message of hope to area students.   This event will start at 4:00 PM Friday, May 7, 2010 at the Edward Saunders Community Center. The center is located at Bailey and Suffolk.
    The 20 year old R&B sensation rose to fame quickly and learned some tough lessons along the way, but now he’s prepared to help steer the lives of young people in a positive direction with his message of hope.


    “We must continue to re-enforce the messages of getting an education and staying out of trouble to our young people so they can realize their dreams.  I applaud what Lloyd is doing and wish him continued success,” said Senator Thompson.


    Violence is a problem in many communities and the goal here is to show students a better way of life by involving their peers.
