In the summer of 2016, our friend and extremely talented musician Steph Johnson co-founded “Voices of our City”, a choir for people experiencing homelessness in San Diego. The choir provides the voiceless with a voice and showcases the human potential and talent living on the streets.
A new documentary called The Homeless Chorus Speaks by noted filmmaker Susan Polis Schutz, chronicles the touching story of the choir and its members. The film will air nationwide on various PBS stations beginning this month and there is a screening of the documentary Friday, March 9 at the Laemmle’s Music Hall in Beverly Hills. Check out the trailer here:
Steph has performed concerts all over the world and released multiple records over the past decade to critical acclaim. Her most recent recording “Music is Art” was produced by two time Grammy award winning producer Kamau Kenyatta (Gregory Porter/Best Jazz Vocal 2014 + 2016). Her song “Maybe” is featured in the “The Homeless Chorus Speaks”:
