Santa Claus Heads Straight to the Ghetto with Grammy Award Winner Anthony Hamilton

Grammy Award winner Anthony Hamilton believes in the power of collective action and encourages music lovers to head straight to their community and sponsor a family this holiday season. With the release of his new music video “Santa Go Straight to the Ghetto,” Hamilton honors the late James Brown though a re-make that taps into the spirit to help those in need.

“Often times we think that the world’s problems are too big to solve,” said Hamilton, a Charlotte native. “Each of us has the power to shape a person’s life. No gift is too small when it comes from the heart.”

In addition to sponsoring families in his hometown, Hamilton also mentors young people from his neighborhood and surrounding communities. The father of six boys, the 17-time Grammy nominee frequently uses his public platform to address some of the nation’s most pressing challenges. His singing voice is just the beginning. He penned an op-ed on the need for responsible policing, which was featured in publications across the country. The culinary enthusiast also has a new book, Cornbread, Fish, and Collard Greens that shares the intimate moments behind the music and also features some of his famous recipes.
