Jekalyn Carr - On The Impact of Music on Emotional Well-being

We partnered middle-school aged kids and their caregivers with mental health experts and musical artists like KAMAUU, to create an album of exclusive songs, inspired by the hidden emotions revealed in their conversations. The artists transformed these conversations to help kids express themselves – crafting a song for the feelings of that child. When your kid can't find the language, help them find the lyrics.
