"In October 2021, King's Theatre had the great joy of presenting Keonté Beals to perform his powerful music, share his beautiful children's book, and bring his inspiring message to youth of all ages in Annapolis County. Keonté gave multiple performances in five schools (from Elementary to High School). In addition, we brought one elementary school to King's Theatre to experience Keonté in the theatre environment. He also visited Bear River Mi'kmaw First Nation and made some meaningful connections there. These shows reached approximately 1000 youth in total. From the first word, the first note, Keonté had the students spellbound. He has a true gift for connecting with youth of all ages. The youth responded resoundingly to his affirmations, laughed at his stories, stood respectfully in as he sang the Black National Anthem, sang along to songs he taught them, asked him a million questions, and mobbed him for his autograph at the end of each show. Later in the year when the students were asked to identify a hero or do a profile on a great Nova Scotian, many chose Keonté. His message was that you have the power to be a success at whatever you choose. He delivered his message with joy and love, and made a lasting impression on the lives of our youth."
