Steve Harvey Awards Musician Shamarr Allen $10,000 for ‘Trumpet is My Weapon’ // STEVE on Watch

A brand-new episode of STEVE on Watch is AVAILABLE NOW. In this new episode, Steve sits down with New Orleans musician, Shamarr Allen, to talk about the program he created called “Trumpet Is My Weapon” – a gun-for-trumpet exchange.

Seeing gun violence as a prevalent issue in his community, Allen wanted to give the youth a chance to turn to music instead of violence. Any kid with a gun throughout New Orleans can hand it over to him – no questions asked – in exchange for a free trumpet. He has successfully been able to give away (7) brand-new trumpets already and, to reward him for his part in bettering New Orleans, Steve Harvey rewards Allen with $10,000 to continue his mission.
