Technology is an absolutely remarkable thing, as it allowed me to connect (& to record a Tapestry video!) with Elizabeth Stookey Sunde of music2life. Liz founded music2life with her father, Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul and Mary. Because I interviewed her about a year ago for an article for The Daily Collegian, Penn State’s student-run newspaper, I had a hunch that she would be the perfect candidate to feature on 20/20 Productions’ Tapestry. Fortunately, that inclination was right, as the interview was so much fun and quite insightful!
Now, I don’t want to give too much away before the video goes live, but I will say that it’s definitely going to be another empowering Tapestry take simply because Liz is such a remarkable woman. It was neat to hear about how music2life has really evolved to become an organization that goes beyond utilizing the power of music to inspire social change (a feat in itself!), to creating an atmosphere and programming capable of actually motivating people to make a difference.
Liz was also kind enough to compile and share with us a playlist of music she personally finds impactful, which we’ll make sure to share when the video goes live — but here’s a teaser: K’naan’s “Take A Minute” and the Dixie Chicks’s “Not Ready to Make Nice” are both on it.
So make sure to stay tuned for the video — and, while you wait, pop over to music2life’s website to find out more!
