Good evening Buck’s Rock!
I am not very political. And I don’t really like to watch or read the news. But enough is enough.
I think that one thing that we can all agree on is Freedom.
The good news is that we just happen to have a stage.
And we happen to have a voice.
And we happen to have 300 teenagers who care about their future.
And I had the idea that we should use our collective voice and this platform to sing about what matters to us.
Not only paying tribute to freedom but we’re celebrating the freedoms that we have.
And I hope tonight that we can make Woody Guthrie and Pete Seger and Ernst and Ilse proud.
