Hernandez appeared at international jazz festivals such as Montreux, Montreal, Jamboree (Poland), London Jazz Fest, Jazz Fest Ottawa, as well as concerts in Budapest, Madrid, Guadalupe Islands, Martinique and Moscow.

It is the first fund raising concert for the Children’s Art Foundation to help fulfill many kids’ dreams: This coming Fall they are ready to paint the biggest schools’ murals ever!

Murals are permanent art works which adorn the school for many years to come where the kids will be proud to come back and show off to their own future generation. The support of musical greats Gil Gutierrez and Gabriel Hernandez will match the donation from the San Miguel Community Church and the children from three colonias Ejido de Tirado, San Luis Rey and Guadalupe will now have a chance to paint the very first murals in their communities. The three mural projects begin in the Fall and will be completed by Christmas 2014.
