Finding Common Ground Through Music

By Rob Smith, Program Manager

I met one of our tenants years ago at St. John’s Kitchen in Kitchener. They had a microphone and PA system set up so that people could come up and play a song, or recite some words that meant something. We realized that we both liked this Australian band that I’ve always liked, The Church. We found common ground with this tune, and with him on the guitar and us sharing the microphone, we bashed out a version that was all our own… Here is the original… The Church – Under the Milky Way

That tenant has now been stably housed at SHOW for 7 years.
