St. Lunatics' Murphy Lee In-Store & Toy Drive Event @ Vintage Vinyl St. Louis
As reported by Jeff Bernthal at St. Louis Fox TV
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI-FOX2now.com) - A Grammy winner from St. Louis is in the U-city Loop, (Dec. 16) Wednesday night. Murphy Lee of St. Lunatic's Fame is behind a toy drive that he hopes becomes an annual tradition, "I had a dream last night. It was just one person in the store. It was just me and one of my, my number one fan." His nightmare did not come true. Plenty of fans lined up at Vintage Vinyl for a chance to meet him. He said, "Feels good to be Murphy Lee today."
You could say he's living a dream. That's because this multi-platinum selling artist is about to reach another milestone. He's releasing his latest project, Age of 21 along with a DVD. He decided to combine this signing event with a toy drive, "It's just, it's just my duty, you know, I have kids and they kind of get what they want out of me, so it's great to be able to help, help others."
Lee hopes his success story is an inspiration to others. The St. Louis native now owns his own recording label, "I went to school. I graduated. I formed my career, took my career to another level, now I'm an entrepreneur."
Lee also hopes to bridge what he calls a generation gap. He thinks parents have a hard time understanding today's kids, "All we see is that they're wilding out, they're going crazy out there and really they're striving and asking for attention so much."
Lee hopes the attention on this toy drive will remind his fans success isn't just about making money - it's also about giving back.
Some of the toys will go to Project Ark, an agency helping kids affected by AIDS. The others will go to a Christmas wish party sponsored by the Demetrius Johnson Foundation.
