Four young men ages 16-18 are part of Exit Sign and their director is Chaz Bruce, a musical educator himself.
Bruce created the acapella group more than three years ago as a way to help young African American males "exit" poverty and become successful, educated and productive members of the community.
"They practice by themselves just about everyday, " Bruce said. "But we practice together at my house two to three times a week."
The members of the group are London Graham, Blake Crayon, Kurtis Washington and Maurice Johnson.
Crayon said he wouldn't be the young man he is today without Exit Sign.
"Overall I would say it has totally changed my life. Being a part of this group has made me motivated to do better, " Crayon said "Not just in school but in life. It also has helped me want to motivate others."
Exit Sign performed at Kent Knappenburger's annual Chamber Choir Festival. The group has also worked with RPO, CEO of the New York Institute of Dance and Education and international producers Sean Mcleaod.
Bruce said Exit Sign is not just a singing group, it is a movement.
"I created Exit Sign to show a group of young black males how to use their natural talents to get them to the next level of success, " Bruce said. "Members of Exit Sign realize that it is their jobs not just singing and dance, but to inspire their peers to strive to positively effect their community."
