ATLANTA – On Thursday, April 21 the W Atlanta – Midtown hosted an exciting musical performance for hotel guests and the public alike. Taboo, the Grammy-nominated musician from the pop group Black Eyed Peas, hosted a listening session and live performance of his newest album, Magnificent.

The event was held in partnership with the American Cancer Society, which Taboo serves as a global ambassador for helping to combat cancer through prevention, healthy living, and screening.   With the American Cancer Society headquartered in Atlanta, this was a special hometown performance showing Taboo’s commitment to growing the partnership while educating himself and others along the way.

In addition to Magnificent, Taboo is producing new music and is set to release a series of singles this year. Being a Native/Mexican American, he is releasing a record for the Latin community in time for summer. Always collaborating, inspiring, and being inspired by others, Taboo is partnering with the Atlanta Music Project as part of his commitment to music education. He will be presenting the youth in the music program with a master class about leadership, discipline, and healthy living as keys to success. The master class is based on his book entitled Falling Up.

The W Atlanta – Midtown experience served as an opportunity to connect with partners and friends in the industry, raise awareness for charitable causes that Taboo is passionate about, as well as showcase new music.
