Have you ever shared your special talent with others?

How about on a giant, pineapple-shaped stage alongside your mentors, family and friends?

On Tuesday, April 30th, our Miami crew took over Ball & Chain for another successful Spring Showcase, and – dare we say it? – this one just might have been the most rockin’ showcase yet.

Students from over a dozen of our school and community sites all over Miami-Dade County came together to share the spotlight and show off how far they’ve come over this past year of hard work, teamwork and music-making! We heard original songs and pop covers with our kids’ own unique creative spin. We watched dance performances that made us tap our toes and jump for joy. We witnessed our students – for many, their first time performing publicly – demonstrate their talent, dedication and exuberance in front of an audience radiating so much support and love.

Performing in public is one of the hardest things a musician can do, yet these kids stepped into the spotlight with confidence and charisma to rival even the most seasoned rockstars. They’ve practiced hard and grown a lot over the year, not only as musicians, but as young leaders in their classrooms and in their communities. On Tuesday night, they showed us what it means to #ChooseYourSound.

Yeah – we’re pretty proud.

We had so much fun, and already can’t wait to jam at next year’s Spring Showcase! Thank you so much to Ball & Chain for hosting us, and for supporting our mission – and thank you to everyone who came out to show some love for our rockstar fam!
