An amazing festival-style musical offering will be provided by artists affiliated with Lost Voices, a group of Michigan singer-songwriters who help kids heal from all sorts of trauma by helping write and perform original music. Hosted by humorist, musician, and Lost Voices Founder Mike Ball, the afternoon will feature Josh White Jr, Annie & Rod Capps, Jen Cass & Eric Janetsky, Sharon Tse & John Finan, and Bobby Pennock.
“Along with the music, guest speakers will help you learn how to get involved to end modern day slavery,” says Mike Ball of Lost Voices. “Find out about the human trafficking problem in Michigan, and how you can support the programs that help survivors to heal and transform their pain into strength.”
