The Power of Social Media & North Philly

Google Justus Rivera and what do you get? How about a kid from North Philly on the news and all over Twitter. The best part...he got asked to be a guest on the Ellen show! Imagine that. The power of social media at its best. According to the NBCPhiladelphia story, "The prodigy was discovered by Kutcher on the corner of 18th and Walnut on Sept. 5. The actor then posted a video he shot of Justus’ sidewalk performance to his Twitter account." From there some producer saw the video and asked Rivera to be on the show.

So the next time you see a random guy, girl or child on the street trying to make $$ (with a talent), don't dismiss them...give them a chance.
