Tory spoke to CNN from Los Angeles last week, about the importance of using his platform to give back to the community. He said:
“It is very important that any artist give back because at some point you were also regular. At some point, you were a normal person like everyone else. I always tell artists that people feel exactly how you felt when you were in that place “.
