Ferreira, who grew up in New Sharon, will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 27, at the Emery Community Arts Center on the campus of the University of Maine at Farmington.

Ferreira combines rap and saxophone. The music program and RSU 9 teachers inspired him to pursue a music career.

By day, Ferreira teaches music at the Boys and Girls Club in Boston, where he works with inner-city youths five days a week. By night, he performs around the Boston area.

The Internet has expanded his audience. One video went viral in Farmington, he said in June when he started a scholarship program and presented the first one to a Mt. Blue High School senior.

Ferreira wants to include local people and represent the things he loves about his hometown for this video.

"I want them to support me first. That's where it all began," he previously said.
