What started as a single YouTube video aimed at giving hope and courage to bullied LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) teens has turned into a worldwide phenomenon with rally cries echoing the catchphrase "It gets better." Thousands of videos have flooded the internet from everyday people and celebrities like Stephen Colbert, Jane Lynch, Ellen DeGeneres, Margaret Cho, Tim Gunn, Kathy Griffin, Sarah Silverman, and even President Obama. Now the initiative takes to the stage in a nationwide tour, with music from the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles -- offering song and story as inspiration for LGBT youth and all those who suffer discrimination.

Best known as bandleader of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Doc Severinsen brings The San Miguel Five performing “El Ritmo de la Vida” as part of the Society for the Performing Arts’ Cinco de Mayo celebration. This ensemble came together not long after Severinsen moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, in 2006. With Severinsen’s soaring trumpet sounds blended with the music of classical guitarist Gil Gutierrez and violinist Pedro Cartas, this electrifying experience features classical Spanish music with a jazz flair and includes gorgeous Latino and American ballads, some great movie music and the popular gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt.
The event is part of the CenterPoint Energy Music Series.
