Let Lyrics Speak

Let Lyrics Speak is The You Rock Foundation’s after-school program (and forthcoming app) where students select song lyrics and expand on them with their personal stories to express emotions and thoughts that they would normally hide. We've discovered that individuals intuitively share so much more with music because the discussion is tied to something that already gives them a cathartic release. The music acts as the catalyst for much-needed (and often life-saving) conversations that likely wouldn’t happen without it. The program's proven to be a uniquely wonderful way to create community that offers support to those suffering in silence.
