Jose Antonio Abreu: Let’s bring music to kids worldwide (TED Prize winner!) (by TEDtalksDirector)
“Mother Teresa of Calcuta insisted on something that always impressed me: the most miserable and tragic thing about poverty is not the lack of bread or roof, but the feeling of being no-one, the feeling of not being anyone, the lack of identification, the lack of public esteem. That’s why the child’s development in the orchestra and the choir provides him with a noble identity and makes him a role model for his family and his community.”
What an astounding and inspiring TED Talk. A recommended, hope giving 19 minutes.
