Music is the Calm After Hannah’s Storm

Local radio station 104.7 The Fish grants “FISH Christmas Wishes” each year.  In 2016, The Gift of Music Foundation was proud to join forces with the Fish and their sponsor Chick-fil-a to help make a few of these wishes come true.

Most recently the entire family was living in a travel trailer in the driveway of their destroyed home in Louisiana (destroyed by last summer’s floods.)  Hannah lost all of her musical instruments in the flood, (including her beloved flute) and the family was not insured for floods –  so they lost EVERYTHING!  Her father Michael came to Atlanta to pick up some contracting work to get the family back on their feet, and is in the process of moving them in Atlanta.  The Gift of Music Foundation was touched by the story and we were happy to provide a flute for Hannah who can now join the band in the Forsyth County School where she is attending. Sometimes great things can happen in the face of adversity.

We believe that music matters.  And when we see the joy it brings to a young person who may not have the resources to follow their musical dream – well, that’s why The Gift of Music Foundation was started.  If you believe in music too, please join the cause and make a contribution today.  Together we can make more of these stories come to life!
