Finding Lost Voices
It's not funny, but he is. The Michigan Mike Ball is a humorist, columnist, author, and now singer/songwriter. He has a great cause.
His Lost Voices foundation helps incarcerated and at-risk youth. It provides writing and music programs to help the kids find their creative selves...and maybe eventually careers along with goals and self-confidence.
His folk produce workshops in creative writing and music performance. More description and pix appear at their Facebook page.
This Mike Ball's effort grew out of a career day he participated for incarcerated kids in 2005. His background appears here. His foundation now gets support, and performances, from Michigan-based folk and blues singers as well.
Good on him.
