“Music is something that connects even the most different people. Singing really helps me to release any stress or adversity that comes my way. Soul Sounds had become such an important and meaningful part of my life. Not only have I learned more about music, but I’ve also made some of the greatest friends ever. The experiences and challenges we have faced as a choir, has made me mature as a person. It is a blessing to be a part of what I consider a great family.”
