We are deeply honored to have been asked to work with the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas H.S. in Parkland, Florida.
The original song posted below, which was written and recorded in one of the classrooms at MSD as we worked alongside Music Therapist Bree Gordan, puts forth the emotions and insights of these young people as they participated in the Healing Through The Arts initiative at Camp Shine this summer.
We invite you to hear another side of their story…
