Miami's Own Unforgettable Moment - The Daniel Coulanges Story is Premiering Thursday, May 4, 08:00 pm on WBEC-TV

With an album of lost footage from his uncle, Desouvre encourages people to live their lives to the fullest with Miami’s own “Unforgettable” moment. Like the rise of vinyl sales Desouvre hopes to bring to life the music his late uncle Daniel Coulanges.  Kendall resident Yanatha Desouvre shares a heartwarming and remarkable story (featured in the Miami Herald, Miami New Times and WLRN’s The Public Story Teller an NPR affiliate) on http://tinyurl.com/danielcoulanges about one of the world’s finest guitarists, Daniel Coulanges. In 1989, two years before Magic Johnson announced he was HIV positive, Coulanges lost his life to AIDS; he was a mere 28 years old. Although his life ended far too soon, his legacy will last forever. Desouvre is using Coulanges music to raise awareness about HIV, encouraging everyone to know their own HIV status. This is important everywhere, but especially in Miami-Dade County, which Care Sources indicates is the number one county in Florida for new cases of HIV.
