What is REVAMP LA?
"Revamp LA” is an annual two part second chance program for Los Angeles, California homeless music artists. Part one is a twelve month recovery program entitled "Revamp to Recovery" that provides ten Los Angeles homeless music artists with housing, therapy/drug recovery assistance, job placement plus food and essentials for an entire year as they undergo our artist development program.
Following the completion of part one of our “Revamp to Recovery” and artist development program; Part two of our program gives all ten of our participants an opportunity to perform in our annual “Revamp” homeless music showcase. An intimate outdoor community music event centered around bringing more awareness to the homeless epidemic in Los Angeles through entertainment.
Ten homeless music artist/musicians face off, performing one original song for our live intimate "Revamp" audience and our panel of music entertainment industry judges, the top performer based on both our live audience votes and our judges final decisions wins the "Revamp" title and a free music video from God Over Everything Movement Production Company. All participants receive continued treatment follow ups following our one year program.
What is our Mission
The Homeless population in California continues to climb; Since our last “Revamp” the homeless population has risen 16% to 151,000 people as of 2020. As homeless statistics continue to grow we become more inspired to make a change to give California homeless individuals a second chance back into society. Revamp aims to not only give hope to the less fortunate but to also focus on and treat mental illness which has invaded the LA homeless community. We believe everyone deserves a second chance at their dreams and most importantly a fresh start at life.
Despite the current health crisis and the postponing of this years "Revamp" homeless music showcase, we can still extremely use your financial support. Our goal in the meantime is to meet our financial mark to fund our four step "Revamp to Recovery" treatment program and music artist development program below, to continue to change lives to give the massive LA homeless community hope.
Don't forget our Homeless during this horrible COV19 pandemic.

Revamp music competition helped change my life, they helped me get back on my feet and gave me hope to one day reunite with my son"
Past Festival Winner - Antonio Lamar
Antonio moved to Los Angeles to follow his music dreams of becoming a rapper in the early 2000's leaving behind the mother of his child and his new born son. Upon his arrival he hit the LA club music scene running and eventually lands a production deal with DMX's production company the "Ruff Ryders". After receiving the production deal his focus became less on the music and more on his new lifestyle of partying, women and drugs. He eventually lost the production deal and hit the clubs once again performing, with hopes of getting another deal. After months of recording and performing he eventually became homeless, sleeping on the streets and couch surfing.
Through these struggles Antonio realized that family was most important not a rap career. Unfortunately after fifteen years of un-stability, Antonio's son; Antonio Jr. no longer wants to keep in contact with his father despite Antonio Sr.'s several attempts. Antonio dreams of one day reuniting with his son now that he is stable, to finally have a face to face talk with him.
We need your help to make this dream come true of reuniting Antonio with his son after fifteen years. Please click below to find out ways to support.
