Music Heals International (MHI) was founded in 2013 with the goal of bringing music and musicians to the children of Haiti and to other parts of the world. MHI programs are designed to teach and inspire, using music as a powerful force for education, creativity, and healing. For its first project, MHI will collaborate with the nation's leading non-profit for music education, Little Kids Rock, and the Haitian relief organization, J/P HRO, to bring LKR's very special program to schools in Port Au Prince, Haiti for the first time, focusing on the community of Delmas 32. The goal is to provide a transformative experience in kids’ lives, and with the power of music, to inspire the creativity and confidence that are critical to success in school and in life.

Tickets for the show are available now via Ticketfly.com.
