About The Event

Transforming Pain to Power is a 45 minute motivational performance during which Daniel Beaty shares his journey from growing up with a father who was a heroin addict & dealer and an older brother who was addicted to crack cocaine, to discovering his purpose by watching Dr. King, graduating from Yale University, and developing his current career as an internationally renowned actor, singer, and writer.

At an early age, God gave Daniel a vision of his life despite the chaos of his home. This presentation is about the triumph of faith over adversity and includes poetry, music, and character excerpts from his award winning plays. Past engagements have ranged from the White House to church & corporate events to school performances ranging from elementary through university level. This presentation is the basis for Daniel’s book that will be published by Penguin in March 2014.

My goal is to place my book Transforming Pain to Power in the hands of as many young people as possible to inspire them to know that no matter where we come from or what were are going through we have the ability to create extraordinary lives. I have partnered with a non-profit Children’s Institute Inc. http://www.childrensinstitute.org/waystohelp/donate/ to accept fully tax-deductible donations to underwrite books.

In exchange for this support, I am traveling across the nation to 25 cities donating my performances to young people between mid February and the end of March 2014.

 I would be extremely grateful if you would consider making a donation to Children’s Institute: http://www.childrensinstitute.org/waystohelp/donate/  and specify the donation is for The Daniel Beaty Book.
