Sing It Out
About the Event
SING IT OUT is AHA!’s yearly signature event and has been called “…Santa Barbara’s feel good event of the year.” It is the culminating celebration of one of AHA!’s after-school groups. Each spring, we shepherd a dozen teens through a 13-week program where they are coached by music and theater professionals and AHA! facilitators to learn, master, and perform a solo rock and roll cover song in front of an audience of 600.
Public speaking is said to be the greatest fear of most people, and for most of these youth – most of whom do not have singing or theatrical experience – getting to the point where they can bust out a rock and roll song backed by a live band is truly a process of transformation. As they learn to overcome fears and individual challenges, these youth also learn to support their peers, accept support from peers and trusted adult facilitators and coaches, and to stand tall and sing their hearts open. Last year, we were thrilled to have had the participation of Martin Gore of Depeche Mode! Don’t miss this year’s surprise.
