Transform: The Power of Music at GRPS

Transform: The Power of Music at Grand Rapids Public Schools from Way Creative on Vimeo.

A short documentary on how music transforms education for students like La’Cora, Madison, and Olivia at Grand Rapids Public Schools.

The documentary was produced for the Grand Rapids Student Advancement Foundation’s 2016 MindShare fundraising gala. The documentary features the choirs of Alger Middle School, Coit Creative Arts Academy, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Leadership Academy, who collaborated to record the song “Together We Can Change the World” as a thank you gift for guests.  The Student Advancement Foundation provides support to Grand Rapids Public Schools in areas such as music so that every child has the opportunity to reach their potential.
