The NextGen Stars® show is pleased to present academic scholarship opportunities to the "Next Generation of Stars". A non-profit division is being established and gifts-of-kind, will be used to establish PAID internship opportunities for instructors and producers "in-training", to assist creating projects for our next generation.

The first scholarship fund will be from any of the net profits generated by the sale of the sound recording owned by David Musial (p)1998 Form SR, of the song "My Way". It was composed by Claude François, Jacques Revaux, Gilles Thibault & Paul Anka. It was made famous by Frank Sinatra. One World Artists ANGELO CERRONE sang this as a very rare, unique tribute at the PUBLIC MEMORIAL SERVICE for FRANK SINATRA, at Saint Francis Roman Catholic Church, in Hoboken, NJ on May 18, 5:30 PM, 1998. Prof. Musial was the Manager for Angelo Cerrone as a recording artist and entertainer. Musial was in the process of producing many recordings for Angelo at this time, as well as producing cartoon character voices with him. Musial (who is also a professional church musician since 1970) placed a very high quality professional stereo microphone, just inches away from his lips, and recorded it digitally CD Quality, as he sang these songs at the Memorial Mass for Francis Albert (Frank) Sinatra. THIS WAS THE ONLY CLOSE MIC RECORDING of the HIGH QUALITY made at this unique event. David Musial immediately prepared it and registers a U.S. Sound Recording Copyright, and "locked it into a vault". It has NEVER been released anywhere until December 12, 2015, the 100th Birthday Celebration of Frank Sinatra.


  David has the understanding that there is some type of charity which benefits children from the estate, so David decided to establish a fund which may help college students help the Next Generation of Children become "Stars" in their own field! Details about how to qualify and when the funds will be distributed, will be published on this page in early 2016, as the fund is properly established and registered as a 501c3.

The inspiration for this concept...


Professor David Musial, the founder of this program, was born into a very humble family of farmer/factory workers. They had to quit high school to help on the farms. David also worked hard as a child, he practiced music for hours at a time. He used his "inventive" abilities to create pushcarts, clubhouses, eventually he learned to build Amateur "Ham" Radios, how to repair motorcycle and automobile engines. Eventually he started to be awarded with a multitude of sponsorships/scholarships which, he did not apply for. David was sent to the prestigious Juilliard School of Music and New York University under full-private sponsorships. David received a private artistic grant to create the award winning "Smart Trax". Professor David Musial went on to create the Award Winning Bachelor's Degree Music Technology Program at Stevens Institute of Technology, where he secured additional grants and also inspired & supervised grants for gifted students.
