Soul Surfer Records has changed the name from Music for Charity to "David Ezrin Music for Charity" to honor our brother who was a part of this great program.

David Ezrin Music For Charity
Soul Surfer Records has a program called "Music For Charities" This creative new program makes it possible for Charities to have their information and graphics printed on a CD with the music of the Irvine young artists and other Soul Surfer Classical artists. The charities are able sell or get donations for the CD’s generating income and sharing the gift of music. The Artists are able to finance their program and expand into other communities across the country in hopes of pushing the levels of modern classical music to new highs. This program was very special to David and he wanted to see this opportunity offered to schools and artist across the US and Canada. We hope to continue to expand and grow this program with the help of each of you and companies across the nations that believe in the power and gift of music.
