This I Believe RI: Music Speaks

Apr 24, 2013

I imagine every single one of us has been deeply moved by a particular song or two that takes us right back to pivotal moments in our lives.  It’s almost like imprinting – a certain melody or lyrics can connect us instantly to an earlier moment that was transformative. As the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen said in the 19th century, “Where words fail, music speaks.”  And that’s what we hear from 13-year old Jania Brown.

Jania Brown is an eighth grade student at TAPA: Trinity Academy for the Performing Arts. She is a dancer, musician, and cheerleader. For Jania, a voice from beyond the grave changed her whole vision about music.
