On August 16, 2011 singer, socialite, and "King of Hancock Park," Norwood Young, shocked the city of Los Angeles when he landed on the front page of the Los Angeles Times after announcing that he was selling his iconic home “Youngwood Court” aka "The House Of Davids." The story states that Young was now choosing to give up his opulent 22 room mansion located in the prestigious neighborhood of Hancock Park to pursue his passion of singing and performing without living in the shadows of the infamy of the home.
Young, who is no stranger in the music industry began his career as a teen on the television hit show "Star Search", and later having some recording successes both international and domestic including lead singer of the legendary jazz band “Pieces of a Dream”, says “I always wanted to be known for my music, but somehow my home became the "real celebrity," and I then grew jealous of my own home”.
"Although I have few regrets in life, I pray that this concert will shift the focus to the beginning of a new era, the message and entertainment of my music." Young says.
For more than 15 years, Young was known for hosting lavish theme parties attended by the who’s who in Hollywood and his extravagant, fantasy land holiday decorations that attract hundreds on tourist, media and onlookers every year. However, throughout this time, Young battled drugs abuse, memories of sexual abuse as a child, and mental health issues. Young writes about his journey in an all telling and inspiring memoir, "Getting Back to My Me” which released in 2010.
Norwood Young was named the spokesperson for the National Coalition against Domestic Violence, where he recently spoke at a congressional briefing in Washington D.C. to create awareness and dialogue regarding sexual abuse amongst children. At the end of Norwood's speech, he performed a heartfelt impromptu rendition of "Let There be Peace on Earth that brought the congressional attendees to their feet in ovation.
"It was then that my purpose to sing and give back was reaffirmed, and I knew I could make a difference through music, the universal language” says Young.
