HANDY (Helping Abused Neglected Disadvantaged Youth) with the support of the Riverwalk Trust will host the “Library of Us” LIVE Concert Experience on Saturday, November 20 at 4:30 PM.
Don’t miss your chance to experience the bold vision and inspiring stories behind “Library of Us” as HANDY’s youth perform live alongside Emmy-nominated Impact Artist and Songwriter Alexander Star at Esplanade Park in Fort Lauderdale.
Library of Us is a collaborative musical album which features songs written and performed by Alexander Star and youth from HANDY. The album consists of six original songs written to express the journeys that youth in foster care (and other vulnerable situations) encounter during their lives.
HANDY and Alexander Star designed the album’s flow to be a ‘song library’ consisting of six chapters focusing on the students’ (and Star’s) experiences with the following realities: Chapter 1 – What are You Afraid of? (Fear & Insecurity) Chapter 2 – Volcanic (Abandonment) Chapter 3 – I’m Aight Though (Insignificance / Failure) Chapter 4 – My Solid Ground (Lessons & Realizations) Chapter 5 – Not Like This (Lost & Found - finding your gifts amidst your circumstances) Chapter 6 – Way Too Much Faith (Spirituality)
All proceeds from the “Library of Us” concert will directly benefit HANDY’s youth and people of all ages are encouraged to attend.
