Hi everyone! My name is Manuel Garcia. I am a music student at Miami Arts Charter School in Florida.
I feel so lucky to be experiencing the feeling of deja vu while creating this support page since I was given the opportunity to attend A Cappella Academy for its 2016 session this past summer and many of you helped me afford that life changing experience through Gofundme.com (below is my group NOTEorious performing "Pay my rent" during the 2016 session showcase)

As surreal as it still feels, I am being offered the opportunity of attending this intensive educational program once more this upcoming summer! (June 29th - July 9th).
Unfortunately this is the last session I'm eligeble for since I'll be turning 18 and will be leaving off to college in the fall.  (below is my accepted audition for this summer session of A Cappella Academy)

This past summer, I came back from A Cappella Academy as a totally changed human being, in the best way you could imagine that statement. I learned more over those 11 days than I had ever learned in my all year-round classes at school. The people I met are by far the most genuine humans I have ever encountered in this world. Most of my friends from Academy and I can't go a day without talking to eachother even though we are spread all around the world. A Cappella Academy showed me how to be a genuine artist and how to appreciate others. I gained so much confidence and motivation, which helped me move forward with my music education and career. 

The total cost for the summer session of 2017 is $1995 but I added the cost of a round plane ticket (approximatedly $300).
This cost pays for:
-all classes
-lodging 
-all meals
-all activities
-transportation to all events

This opportunity means more to me than I would ever be able to express with words. Your help has a great impact on my possibilities! You can help me by either donating whatever amount youre able to, or simply sharing this page with others!
Thank you in advance for helping me to slowly reach my goal <3
