They Share Something Heartbreaking, But It’s So Beautiful When They Come Together

On any given night in the United States, over 500,000 sleep outside without protection. Homelessness affects hundreds of thousands of people across the country, and in quite a few states, numbers are rising.

Many people write off those experiencing homelessness as being lazy, and they speak ill of those struggling with addiction. In reality, however, these people could be anyone. They could be your grandmother. They could be your neighbor who lost his job. They could be the wounded veteran who was let down after serving her country.

Even though kind citizens across the nation spend their time and money helping them, the system often works against homeless people. After all, keeping morale up is hard when employers don’t want to interview them and passersby stigmatize their circumstances. That’s why the Dallas Street Choir is so important to homeless Texans.

By raising their voices, they uplift their community and stand in solidarity together.

Even though homelessness affects thousands, it is an isolating experience. Through the power of music, these people can join hands with others who share their struggles. To learn more about the Dallas Street Choir, visit their website. You can also donate to their cause here!

Toddler Moved To Tears By His Sister’s Performance Is The Best Thing You’ll See Today

Music can evoke emotions that we don’t even know we are holding back.

That’s why music therapy is necessary and effective for so many people. Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” certainly had an unexpected effect on two-year-old Tyler Noftz, who heard it for the first time while at his older sister’s piano recital. He listens to the music while sitting on his father Josh’s lap…then, something starts to happen — he cries. But these aren’t sad tears at all!

Tyler is so adorably moved by the beautiful composition!

Musicians everywhere are now urging Tyler’s parents to get him a musical instrument. If he is so deeply affected by music now, he just might grow up to make beautiful compositions, too.

They Played The Theme From Star Wars Outside John Williams House And THIS Happened

If you’re a Star Wars fan, you have to see what these two musicians just did.

Earlier this month, 13-year-old Bryce Hayashi grabbed his trumpet and a fellow musician and headed down the street. Their goal was to set up shop outside someone’s home, but that house didn’t belong to just anyone.

The pair put a stand on the sidewalk near composer John Williams’ property and started playing one of his most famous pieces. You may have heard of it.

Williams has had an illustrious career, but this song — which was composed back in 1977 — is probably his most iconic. What a way to honor a music legend!
