8 Years #InHarmony: by David Brown

By October 5, 2017 Blog

Eight years ago today. That’s when Harmony Project launched. No corporate or community funding, no guarantee that it would work, no promise of anything beyond a two-night performance at the Lincoln Theatre, and 88 people on a stage.

Today, eight years later, our team is working on the details of a 1,000-voice concert at Nationwide Arena; there are 250+ students in after-school programming every week; men and women who experienced homelessness and differently-abled adults whose voices were not being heard are now singing for their community and standing in the spotlight they deserve; incarcerated women are learning that their location does not define their character as their voices carry across the globe to children in South Africa; thousands of volunteer hours are in process as people cross social divides to work together painting youth housing facilities, planting gardens, serving meals, singing to infants, building a music room for middle-school students, and giving their time to countless organizations who request a Harmony volunteer.

If you are thinking about taking a leap of faith, I can’t tell you whether or not you will succeed. But what I can tell you is this: It’s something Dr. King once said: “Don’t be afraid to take the first step, even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”

Eight is the number of new beginnings. Can’t wait to see what the next eight bring.
