A Powerful Message Told with Music
Michael shares his incredible story of dealing with anxiety, depression, and coping through and with music. His guitar gives him the safety to share this powerful message. Don’t miss it.
We have to thank a dear friend, Joanne, for sharing this video with us. This performance in Greeley, CO touches on very sensitive issues. Mental Illness, Depression, Suicide. Give it a watch and I think you’ll see just how important it is that we share and communicate with one another. None of us heal alone. Although it may bring you to tears, it’s a happy message. Michael is incredibly talented and brave.
