Steph Johnson-Executive Director/Creative Director, Voices of Our City Choir
October 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
President Chris’ initiative for 2020-2021 is to build awareness and action around homelessness in San Diego. This makes the program on October 15 one he is excited to share with the club: Musician/Jazz vocalist Steph Johnson, is the Executive and Creative Director and Co-Founder of Voices of Our City Choir, the “Golden Buzzer” semi-finalists on America’s Got Talent Season 15.
Steph and her team are changing lives of our unsheltered neighbors through music. She noticed the suffering and began outreach that brought food, clothing, blankets and friendship to people experiencing homelessness. Inspiration came from doing outreach and discovering that many people living on the streets were artists and musicians with no outlet, and so began Voices of Our City Choir. Steph was named the 2020 Woman of the Year by San Diego Assemblymember Todd Gloria and is a gifted musician with a heart of gold.
In this illuminating program you will learn more about how Steph sees the challenges and lessons from those living on the streets, as well as some success stories (over 60 people are now in reliable housing and rebuilding their lives with dignity and a sense of home again.) Plus, you will glean what it was like to win the Golden Buzzer this spring and some behind the scenes stories from the AGT experience.
Don’t miss this special program, filled with hope and heart–it’ll change the way you look at homelessness.
