Join Us in Honoring Frontline Heroes

Music has long served as a unifying force during challenging times.

For Worldwide Day of Gratitude -- a student-led global movement spearheaded by YOUnison -- please join us in honoring first responders and healthcare workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic through music. ๐ŸŽถ

Our staff, teaching artists, and students have partnered with several East Baton Rouge Parish musicians to create a special rendition of โ€œLean on Meโ€ by Bill Withers, which has emerged as a rallying cry during the pandemic.

This rendition features 20 musical contributors, from singers and percussionists to violinists and trumpeters. Please check out our musical tribute on YouTube .
We would love if you could share this video widely to spread a message of gratitude to the frontline heroes in our community. Use the hashtags #LeanOnUs, #DayofGratitude, and #KOProud to share on social media.

We greatly appreciate all the first responders and healthcare workers who are putting their lives on the line to keep us safe during this pandemic.

We can't thank you enough, but hope that our gratitude shows through our music. ๐Ÿ’™
