Four celebrity soccer coaches battle it out for a good cause at the first ever Supply Cup on October 5th in Los Angeles! DramaFever is proud to sponsor the Supply Cup, Los Angeles' first charity soccer match raising funds to fight poverty by building secondary schools in the poorest neighborhoods around the world. The Supply is a leading non-profit organization dedicated to building long-term solutions to poverty (find out much more about this The Supply here). There's some major star power behind this sure-to-be-epic match for a great cause. Check out the trailer here, and then let's meet the celebrity coaches!
KEVJUMBA: You know this guy. With millions of YouTube subscribers, 19-year-old Kevin Wu aka KevJumba is a YouTube phenomenon. Like you, we've been watching Kevin since his high school days. He's hilarious, real, and he's even tight with Jessica Alba. But he's also a very generous guy, and we couldn't be more psyched about Kevin's hosting The Supply Cup.
PHILIP WANG of WONGFU PRODUCTIONS: Team captain Philip Wang (center) has been making videos since 2003, but it was the rise of YouTube that catapulted the trio into internet stardom. Starting with lipsync and dance videos and then branching out to music videos and shorts, Wongfu Productions now specializes in all aspects of filmmaking–from big name corporate commercials to down to earth videos with their community members.
AJ RAFAEL: Singer-songwriter sensation AJ Rafael has been stirring audiences online since 2006. With popular covers, original tracks, and adorable music videos, the 23 year old has achieved Partner status on YouTube. From his work with autism organizations to his present participation with Supply Cup, we can't wait to see what's next!
DANTE BASCO: Captain Dante Basco calls himself a veteran, and no wonder! He's an screen actor, voice actor, poet, producer, and dancer. We loved him as the voice of Zuko in the Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender, and also as the voice of Jake Long from the Disney series American Dragon: Jake Long. And we can't wait to see his adventures with KevJumba in "Man-Up, the Movie," their upcoming feature .
