about urban voices project:

Urban Voices Project brings the healing power of music directly to individuals marginalized by homelessness, mental health issues and unemployment. Community singing and music education combine to provide practical opportunities for individuals to transcend their current circumstances and participate in a creative program of positive change.

Composed of artists and performers from the Skid Row neighborhood in Downtown Los Angeles, this project is presented by John Wesley Health Centers (JWCH Institute) to bring music, health and well-being, and community to one of the largest homeless neighborhoods in the United States. Urban Voices Project serves as a “bridge” to Wesley’s health and wellness services for our homeless. Through music education, musical workshops, and a performing ensemble, we share music and its healing power with many individuals and audiences inside and outside the neighborhood of Skid Row.
