Music Village is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to leverage the power of the performing arts to support community organizations, leaders, and public servants focused on preventing child sexual abuse, increasing diversity in the community, and promoting the arts in conjunction with quality education in public schools by raising awareness, fostering community engagement, and fundraising.

On September 10th, 2016, Pop/R&B recording artist Carl Brister brought together artists of diverse musical genres to inspire unity in the community of West Orange through music. This inaugural event took place at West Orange’s own Oscar Schindler Performing Arts Center (OSPAC) amphitheater and was created in response to acts of violence and brutality toward marginalized people throughout the country. Since then, Mr. Brister has been committed to presenting The Love + Unity Fest on an annual basis as a way to bring people together in love through music.
