Jourdan Urbach was named by Teen People Magazine as one of the “Twenty Teens Who Will Change the World,” and certainly not without reason. The We Are Family Foundation is proud to announce that this 2011 Global Teen Leader will be performing at our upcoming 10 Year Celebration Gala!

Jourdan has received international acclaim for his work as a violinist, recording artist, producer, science researcher and philanthropist. At just the age of seven, Jourdan developed a keen interest in neurology after visiting the pediatric ICU at Beth Israel North Hospital in New York City. He witnessed the isolated and underserved young patients suffering from devastating neurological diseases. It was then that he knew he could use his talent for music to positively change the world.
