PAL program hits stage with former Pink Floyd singer

Fifteen Police Activities League (PAL) youth were selected to perform on stage with Roger Waters, former lead singer of Pink Floyd, during his recent sold out concert at Time Warner Cable Arena on July 10.

"The youth were able to experience the professionalism and dedication involved with putting on such a concert, as well as, the amount of practice involved," said Jeff Hood, executive director for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg PAL program.

Since 1968, PAL of Charlotte-Mecklenburg has been providing supervised athletic programs and educational endeavors for youth in the area, according to their website.

Participants at the concert included Maya Hood, Jachai Brown, Brittney Conner, Danielle Robinson, Ariel Outland, Ivy Briscoe, Miyonah Whitaker, Charles Rosser, Kalani Polite, Jahmia Jackson, Antonie Jetter, Nehemiah Nellons, Orande Smith, Aaliyah Buckhalter and Demario Pagan.
