Announcing the “Let the Sun Shine In” Tour!

Chasing Summer in Nicaragua

“Let The Sun Shine In” Tour

So, here’s the crazy plan. We leave Nashville on March 1st for an epic journey to go to five countries over the next five months to bring music, art, songwriting and creativity workshops to children all over the world, especially children affected by trauma.

We believe art and music can heal the heart on a deep level. We have seen it firsthand in our own lives, and we’ve seen it in the lives of kids all over the world. We are partnering with five organizations to bring music and art workshops to kids in Nicaragua, Germany, Poland, Israel, and Ghana. 

Our hope is that in doing art and music together, these kids will feel more freedom to create, express, understand their emotions, and have tools to create masterpieces or simply to dream again.  We can’t even imagine the cool things we will learn from these kids, and we want to showcase their art and also create collaborative music recordings. We’ve written brand new songs just for these kids, and we can’t wait to have them sing and record these songs with us for you to hear. 

Lastly, with enough support, we hope to capture a documentary about the healing power of music and art in the lives of these kids.

Please join us in this effort!

Here are three ways you can get involved.

  1. Please share any ideas you have for children’s homes or orphanages you think we should visit in the comments below.
  2. If you have any ideas for corporate sponsors (airline tickets, musical instruments, etc) please email us at sunshine@chasingsummer.us, or consider donating your unused airline miles to us!
  3. Join our Kickstarter campaign when it is live next week – we’ll send an update to let you know!

We have this beautiful, colorful, ambitious vision to share music and art with kids all over the world and watch the beautiful creations that spring up from them. Our hope is that the art and music from these kids will bring sunshine into the hearts of everyone who hears their voices and sees their artwork. 

Thanks for your support!

Here are some pictures of our past work doing music and art with kids around the world – we are so excited about the next phase of the journey!
