J.A.M.P. students bring the funk with youth program

AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- A local program is giving kids an outlet while shaping them into musicians. The kids may be young, but they've got a whole lot of soul.

"You start dancing, any instrument you're playing, I don't care if you're using every single part of your body playing it you're going to dance to the music," said drummer Nicholas Turmon. He's just one of the kids involved in the James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils, or J.A.M.P.  READ AND WATCH FULL STORY AT WRDW.COM
