Constructing Their Own Art
On one Friday afternoon performers Johnny Oah, Ashley Prince, and Sean DeCrescenzo took the stage at the Connection Drop-in Center as performers.
Johnny played the ukulele and sang cover songs from Mumford & Sons, White Blank Page, to Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s, Over the Rainbow. Johnny had the privilege of playing for Monarch High School’s graduation and sang at The Connection for practice. It was his first performance as a musician.
Ashley and Sean were no strangers to The Connection. They played once before and many came for support. They both belong to the band, Cooler than Kyle, and have played for numerous venues including Broomstock. They performed covers such as Zombie by the Cranberries as well as their own songs like Colorblind. Ashley also attended Monarch High School with Johnny and was friends.
After the concert, all students participated in painting bags for Project Angel Heart for their meal delivery service for terminally ill people. All bags went from bland brown to creative canvases of color. Everyone went home content from listening to great music and volunteering for a wonderful cause.
