Last Tuesday, Anthony Steele, Berklee City Music alumni, performed for the “BET Music Matters Tour” in New York City.

Anthony said:

“Upon getting the call I was very much excited to experience something different on a great stage for a great cause. Every time I’m blessed with opportunities it always makes me see the bigger picture of why I started playing music [with my] passion, hunger, and the continual desire to “Do what you love for your career.””

BET’s Music Matters is a campaign that highlights the next BET superstars through music, bios, videos, photos and intimate interviews where the artists explain who they are and what music means to them.

Anthony’s professional education comes from the Community Music Center of Boston, the Boston Arts Academy High School, and Berklee College of Music, from which he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Performance in 2006.  He is a recipient of numerous awards and accolades.  Some of which include being named the “Best of Boston” in 2002, in addition to receiving a Musician Citation for Performance at the International Association for Jazz Educators (IAJE) Festival in 2001.
