Thank you for your interest in One BEAT Away our non profit organization. My name is Anthony Juba and I am the Founder and President! Music has and will always be part of my life’s awesome foundation and village. I’m a singer, songwriter, composer, producer and humanitarian with the sole purpose of utilizing my artistic and philanthropic background to make a profound impact on many of the societal, educational and health issues our world continues to face.
I founded One BEAT Away after tragically losing my nephew Jayden just a few weeks after his first birthday. I can tell you this continues to be one of the most debilitating things I’ve ever experienced, but I knew I needed to find a positive and productive way to channel this pain while building his legacy, thus the creation of One BEAT Away Inc.
Loosing Jayden made me realize I could transcend my gift of music, through acts of service into something far greater than myself. I will always use my gifts and public platform to inspire, enlighten and paint vivid pictures into the memories of those struggling to hold on to anything happy and real. I will always use my gifts to bring light to darkness, hope to the hopeless, healing to the broken, opportunities to those with no vision, justice to every form of injustice and acceptance for all. W. H. Auden once said “love each other or perish.” We must believe that everything we need in order to be the best us begins with us and that we embody the power to be everything we can be and more to this world.
Music is a remarkable and power tool with the capacity to touch each of us in incredible ways. Regardless of what culture, religion or ethnicity we represent, music is a universal conduit capable of connecting us all no matter where we are or what language we speak. Music heals, restores, unites and provides so many other countless benefits to humanity. Its therapeutic, reduces pain, anxiety, stress and has the capability to reconnect us with certain periods or events in our lives, suggesting that music can support emotions and memory recall with cognitive disorders such as dementia. Music is Life, Hope and Love!
Who I am goes much deeper than my own personal gains. I’m determined, purposeful and passionate about the positive imprint I want to leave behind for my predecessors, ensuring I too leave this world better than the way I found it. My artistic and philanthropic platform will never deviate from this.
If you share the same vision, whether it’s through our work with dementia patients, supporting dementia research, if you simply appreciate the arts and want to ensure students in low-income areas are able to receive the gift of music through instruction and/or extracurricular activities, or if you simply want to make a difference in the lives of others, I implore you to join our movement through your time, service and/or tax deductible donation.
Together we’re One BEAT Away from…
And The BEAT Goes On………
