New Organization Hopes to Save Lives Through the Arts

A new organization has just launched called, _____ Saved My Life, which focuses on the positive effects of the arts on one's life. Touching first on music, they will be collaborating with artists to write songs on the matter:

Each artist will present a song: a personal story describing a low point in life and how they were able to cope with the situation or change it for the better.

They hope to spread the message to those seeking inspiration or finding something to relate to. The bands lined up to contribute will be announced soon.
