Today we’d like to introduce you to Chavonne Stewart.
Chavonne Stewart is an American vocal instrumentalist, entrepreneur, community advocate and philanthropist. Born in Los Angeles, CA, Chavonne’s formative years were characterized by close family ties, music and spiritual fellowship against the challenges common in underserved communities. After graduating from Washington Preparatory High School in 2003, the songstress began a career as a studio and background singer.
Chavonne’s soulful voice has granted her the opportunity to travel the world and perform with acclaimed artists such as Mavis Staples of the legendary Staples Singers and Jackson Browne, with whom she also appeared as a featured vocalist on several albums, “Naked Ride Home”, “Time The Conqueror”, and “Standing in the Breach.” She has also recorded featured and background vocals for George Benson and Al Jarreau “Givin’ It Up”, Mavis Staples “Live: Hope at the Hideout”, Ruben Studdard (American Idol’s second-season winner) “I Need An Angel”, and John Fogerty, “Wrote a Song for Everyone”, Faith Evans, and Beyonce to name a few.
Chavonne’s view of the world blossomed in cadence with her musical career, but these were just the first of many petals – and – thorns in her journey through womanhood. Over the course of a few years, she has proven she could rise above the misfortunes of her upbringing and smash socio-economic statistics. Just shy of her quarter century mark of existence, Chavonne married Cameron Stewart. Within five years, her family and responsibilities multiplied to include three bright girls of her own.
Off the mic Chavonne continues to make a significant impact in her community through the lives of young girls. As Founder and CEO of Exposher Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of inner-city youth girls, her voice now amplifies their dreams and goals. Exposher programs and services focus on excellence, career development, and personal management. Currently, the organization is working toward the procurement of a headquarters facility to better serve the community and expand the organization’s reach. Her vision and passion for Exposher is routed in her own experience rising above the freys of environment and circumstance.
The phrase it takes a village to raise a child is the cornerstone of the Exposher mission. The organization is a part of that village for giving hope to tomorrow’s leaders and visionaries. “I believe if you can see it, you can reach for and achieve it. My goal is to expand the vision of what’s possible for young girls from my neighborhood and neighborhoods like the one I grew up in and ensure they know their value and are confident in creating their futures.” – Chavonne Stewart
Has it been a smooth road?
Running Exposher has been a smooth and enjoyable road!
We’d love to hear more about your organization.
Exposher is a mentorship organization serving inner-city girls. Our mission is to expose underserved girls of diverse backgrounds to career and life opportunities. We do that by putting on monthly workshops.
I’m most proud of the positive impact our mentoring is having on the girls of Exposher. Grades are raising, attitudes are changing in a positive direction, the girls are excited about their futures, and they have so much hope for themselves now!
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love the fact that I grew up in a city that some people would look at and simply look over because I am the possibility for other girls like me that greatness can come from South Central LA.
