International Youth Summit
I had the great honor of performing at an International Youth Summit in Giza, Egypt in August. Teens from fifty different countries were in attendance. During my performance, I asked for volunteers to come on stage with me. The result was a magical moment with teens from all socioeconomic, religious and ethnic backgrounds enthusiastically joining me to play, sing, laugh and dance together as one. Music truly is the thread that unites the world and what a blessing it was for me to witness this first hand. I will never forget that moment nor the connections I made with teens there.
