MIAMI – South Florida recording artist Barachi and his label partner, GMUSIC gave away 200 turkeys in Lauderhill, Florida for the holidays. Residents who came out to get their turkeys were excited to meet the person behind this generous gesture.

The Lauderhill Regional Chamber of Commerce and Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies assisted with logistics and getting the word out to their constituents. Barachi, who was raised in South Florida, will release his debut project, “Therapy,” as a nine-song visual album.

“Helping people is my passion and every family deserves to eat a healthy meal on Thanksgiving,” Barachi said. “We appreciate the support of our partners, GMUSIC and Health Benefits Groups in helping us with this effort.”

“We were honored to lend a helping hand in this very successful pop-up turkey giveaway in the Lauderhill community,” said John G. Beckford, immediate Past President of the Lauderhill Regional Chamber of Commerce, long-term resident and active member of the community.

“We, at GMUSIC are honored and humbled to partner with Health Benefits Group in our efforts to ensure that families in the Lauderhill community enjoy a beautiful Thanksgiving as they partook in the Turkey Giveaway. Florida was hit hard after Hurricane Irma and the people of Lauderhill are deserving of this blessing as we endeavor to offer kindness to those in need. We are a young company with a charitable spirit and passion for those less fortunate,” said Lindsay Guion, CEO of GMUSIC, who has also managed Ginuwine and D’Angelo.

The songs on “Therapy” speak about balance, wholeness, love and real relationships. Barachi – who co-composed and coproduced every song with High Volume (Gucci Mane, Jason Derulo, Busta Rhymes)

and another emerging South Florida producer – said the peace, joy and happiness found in his music are the same things he wants to share with his fans.

Barachi and Guion said they hope to continue the giveaway in future years and make it even bigger to provide for more families.
