HOW MUSIC AND TEEN SPIRIT ARE FIGHTING ADDICTION
Each of us is familiar with the healing power of music. Whether you are listening to some powerful rock and roll tunes or meditating to some soothing New Age voices, melodies have a way of making us feel empowered, calm, or energized. Let’s also not forget that many lyrics contain powerful messages about human existence, romance, and (most importantly) learning difficult life lessons. Sometimes, music can heal you better than a therapist or psychiatrist ever could and can help you feel like a better person all the way around. Obviously, the organizations Facing Addiction, NCADD, and MusiCares® understood this truth when they teamed up to create the MusiCares® Teens Make Music Project. As part of this program, teenagers have the opportunity to share uplifting stories about sobriety and strength through music and lyrics (and can win a great prize as a result). Let’s take a closer look at this incredible program and find out some more information.
Making Lives Better with Music
As part of the MusiCares® Teens Make Music Project, officials have offered teens the chance to heal and uplift people through powerful message about sobriety and relapse, all through the power of original music. Back in 2018, young musicians (ages 14 to 18) created original works of music that focused on life “above the influence” or reveal the bitter moments of drug addiction and alcoholism. After creating these projects, the teens were instructed to submit their songs to the program. During January 22 to 27, 2019 (National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week), officials will announce the 2018 winners.
Inspiring and Uplifting the Victims
Above all else, this program will provide inspiring messages to people who not only need to hear about the reality of their struggles but also receive amazing feedback from the next generation. After the final rulings, the first-place winners will receive tickets to attend the GRAMMY® Awards and additional events related to this incredible night. Additional prizes include exclusive tickets to the Vans Warped tour, cash, and additional materials. (If anyone you know wants to get in on this exciting opportunity, they have a chance to work on an original musical composition before the deadline of December 2019.)
