Cleveland was Michael Stanley’s town. Through his skill and talent, he created a soundtrack that defined Cleveland over decades. And through his love for this place and its people, he established a legacy of giving back, one that has already impacted the lives of so many Clevelanders. In his honor and to continue to keep his legacy alive, the 10,000 Watts of Holy Light Fund was founded.
