Playing For Change Is Music and Music Is Love

Great ideas are often accidents. And so it is with “Playing for Change.”

What started as a documentary film project morphed into an effort to inspire, educate, and validate people who have few, if any, resources. The project is supported by those who believe in its worth but is fueled by the resilience of the human spirit.

It speaks to me in many languages, but the translation is the same: nothing bonds us, uplifts us, and unites us like music — and music is love.

Call me a romantic and a dreamer if you will. It matters not to me. I will always adhere to the principle that when all else fails, let us lift our voices in song; and if we can’t sing, then dance brothers and sisters…dance.

About Pam Avery Printed

I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1972 with a major in journalism (public relations) and a minor in business (marketing). My experience for the last 40 years includes working in the corporate world (banking), the newspaper industry (advertising design and sales), owning and selling a restaurant, restoring and utilizing several old buildings on the property, teaching private dance and drama lessons for 20 years, free-lance writing for a national textile firm, publishing two children’s books, and ghost writing a book. My last tour of duty before beginning the current chapter was working as a reporter, photographer, and columnist for five weekly community newspapers. And now I teach...media writing at Columbus State University in Columbus Ga. I consider myself very fortunate--I get to be around intelligent, energetic and enthusiastic young people. What a joy. I believe the written word is one of the most powerful tools known to humankind. And now we have the ability to reach millions with a simple click of the mouse. Wow.
