We are proud and honored to reshare this video, produced by Playing For Change in partnership with Turnaround Arts.
Turnaround Arts infuses struggling schools with arts as a strategy for reform. The program was founded by President Obama’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities and is now run by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Turnaround Arts currently works in 73 schools, 38 districts, and 17 states and the District of Columbia.
“Everyday People” features Turnaround Arts students alongside their Turnaround Artists including Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Paula Abdul, Misty Copeland, Elizabeth Banks, Keb’ Mo, Forest Whitaker,andmany more performing this timely song by Sly and the Family Stone.
This video was created to inspire the idea that all children deserve access to the arts in school and that the arts have the power to create change.
