Positive Vibes Only is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created by Chicagoland singer-songwriter, RJ Griffith, to create a safe space where area youth can share their creativity and spread positive vibes! RJ has had his music in radio rotation, in movies, and his song “Good Day” was recently being used in a commercial as the theme song for the new Fox Good Day Chicago marketing campaign. He has also toured across the country with a national recording group, performed on national television and was invited to sing the national anthem multiple times at the Chicago White Sox games. RJ finally started gaining recognition for his music is in his late 20’s, but was always frustrated that there were not more opportunities for him to showcase his talents at a younger age.
As a child, RJ wondered why adults always got to have all the fun, and now he is finally in the position to change that and give Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana youth the opportunity to showcase their talents and socialize in a positive environment while having an amazing time doing it! This is a chance for young people to meet new friends while feeling comfortable showing off their creativity in singing, dancing, spoken word, comedy, acting, and more in a judgment-free zone. Positive Vibes Only officially became a 501(c)(3) non-profit in June of 2019 and the majority of our events take place in East Chicago, IN. The organization also provides free educational sessions for youth once a month such as group vocal lessons, acting classes, mental health coping skill sessions, anti-bullying sessions and hold other community events such as food and book bag drives as well. We hope to see you at an upcoming event soon!
