Hope Is Where the Heart Is


The HEARTBEAT FOUNDATION is a non-profit corporation and operates exclusively for multicultural and educational purposes. We support, promote, and assist ethnic minorities by creating not for profit multicultural events, fund raising events, and art programs that will generate social awareness and consciousness particular to specific communities while promoting cultural diversity.

In 2019, IZA Brazil’s POP Phenomenon, Latin Grammy Nominee, and Judge on the TV Show “The Voice” kicks off a new album in Manhattan. In the Same Year, Biquini Cavadao, the Iconic Brazilian Rock band lands in Boston to promote Brazil’s Rock History.

- In 2020 with the support of the Heartbeat Foundation, the 9th Annual Brazilian Festival was held in Fort Lauderdale, and the only LIVE Brazilian Celebration held in the entire Country, setting new standards of safety in the Industry as a Covid Safe event.

Helping The Community

In 2020 - Celebrity Musicians banded Together to launch Fundraising Campaign for Struggling Brazilian Immigrants in the Arts, Events & Entertainment Industries in South Florida. In response to the economic fallout the Coronavirus Pandemic has inflicted on Brazilian immigrants living in the United States, this campaign has raised funds and helped individuals with $500 financial relief checks.
