Mikeyy Austin is a 21 year old hip-hop/soul music artist, musician, bandleader and an arts advocate right here in our community. He wants to use his talents to inspire those that have experienced similar struggles, while giving hope and confidence to listeners. He also believes that it is not enough to just speak, platforms are created to make tangible impacts within our community. Outside of his musical career he also runs an arts organization that aims to highlight local artists while raising scholarship money for Lansing School District seniors continuing their education in art programs. In just four months they were able to raise $4,000 and surprised four students with $1,000 scholarships each. This year they are hoping to double what they did last school semester!  

Lansing is a small town with big potential, filled with community minded residents that aim to build a Lansing that is inclusive, diverse and celebrates differences. Individuals use all forms of art to build the 517 into this vision.
