Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Ashanti Douglas can add National Youth of the Year Ambassador to her many accolades. As an alumna of the Glen Cove (N.Y.) Boys & Girls Club, where her mother, Tina Douglas, taught dance, Ashanti performed for the very first time on the Club’s stage. Today, Ashanti can claim the #1 spot on both the Billboard Top 200 and R&B album charts, a Grammy for best contemporary R&B album and numerous hit studio albums. Her role as Ambassador of BGCA’s Youth of the Year programs is her way of giving back to the organization which first helped her hone her artistic talents and love of music.
