Jorge Narvaez

RealityChangers
The hugely popular YouTube channel /RealityChangers (http://www.youtube.com/realitychangers), which has over to 150million views, was started by Jorge Narvaez, a young father with the desire to share songs, stories, skits and more all with a focus on family, community, art and music. The channel follows Jorge along with his two daughters, Alexa and Eliana, as they record cover songs, take on family adventures, and chronicle their lives all through video.

Narvaez began uploading personal vlogs (video-blogs) to YouTube in 2005 and as his channel and its content grew and evolved, fans began to follow. In December 2010 Jorge and daughter Alexa uploaded a cover of Edward Sharpe & TheMagnetic Zeros’ song “Home” and within days millions of people around the world took notice. The video’s viral success caught the attention of Ryan Seacrest, Ellen DeGeneres, The Huffington Post, CNN, Time Magazine, America’s got Talent and many more, securing a now loyal fan base that continues to stay engaged with all things. The channel features new content each week appealing to its 413,000+ subscribers.

The name /RealityChangers stems from Narvaez’s involvement in the Reality Changers Foundation (http://realitychangers.org/) which he helped found in 2001. The foundation gives inner-city students the academic, financial and emotional resources to go to college; and as a first-generation graduate of both high school and college himself, theReality Changers program was a driving force in Narvaez’s own education success. Narvaez strives to teach his daughtersthe same values that he learned through the foundation—the ability and drive to create and change their own reality.
