Eric Genuis to perform ‘Concert for Hope’ benefitting the Adult Rehabilitation Center in Otay Mesa

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Musician Eric Genuis has inspired countless individuals who are spending time in prison. Genuis has devoted his life to play in places “where people are forgotten.”

These places include prisons, rehab, inner city schools, homeless shelters and for the elderly.

But that’s not all, Genuis also performers for our veterans suffering from PTSD.

He played in his first prison in his 20s, and instantly knew this is what he wanted to do with his life. He explained an inmate stood up during his first concert and shouted something like, “I forgot what hope felt like.”

Ever since, Eric Genuis has made it his mission to bring hope to those in need.

Genuis joined KUSI’s Jenny Milkowski on Good Morning San Diego to promote his upcoming “Concert for Hope” that will benefit the Adult Rehabilitation Center in Otay Mesa.
