A bit of a blast from the past from the summer of 2009, Music Saves – I Shall Be Released:
I loved this video! And what better way to overcome adversity, then through music. Music Saves was developed to raise awareness for Music Therapy programs such as VAMS (Vancouver Adapted Music Society) & The Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund and the wonderful work they do to help inspire folks to achieve their dreams, disability or no disability (really hate the word disability, incidentally – as something is only a disability if you treat it as such).
Felt inspired to post this now, as The Shore 104.3 fm is launching Music Saves II this Wednesday, November 3, 2010, featuring Dan Mangan, Odds, John Mann, Kuba Oms, Jim Byrnes, C.R Avery, Barney & Dustin Bentall, The Van Horns, VAMS Allstars, Adaline and so many more performing Dave Mason‘s Feelin’ Alright.
You can “Win Your Way In” to the launch, including live performances from members of this year’s and last year’s video by staying tuned to The Shore and interacting with their twitter and facebook feeds. Can’t wait! Hoping to be there myself!
