[00:00:12.090]Today is the i2choir concert.
[00:00:14.050]I2choir is a inclusive choir.
[00:00:16.020]It has individuals with disabilities,
[00:00:18.560]it has individuals without disabilities,
[00:00:20.500]it has college students, adults, children.
[00:00:23.740]Anybody that wants to come sing is welcome to come.
[00:00:25.966]♪ And I don't know if I believe it's true ♪
[00:00:31.400]My daughter has a passion for music
[00:00:34.230]and this is one way for her
[00:00:35.610]to actually get out there and do what she loves
[00:00:38.800]and just fill her heart
[00:00:41.030]and fill her bucket, as she would say.
[00:00:43.330]Let's do a little bit of Hero everyone.
[00:00:47.710]So we are in our seventh year
[00:00:49.640]and we wanted to create an outreach experience
[00:00:53.060]for individuals in the community
[00:00:55.790]who would like to learn to sing,
[00:00:57.680]and with a particular focus on trying
[00:01:00.880]to model inclusive practices
[00:01:03.410]for individuals who happen to have disabilities.
[00:01:06.259]♪ So nice I knew you ♪
[00:01:09.500]Rhonda has been such a blessing.
[00:01:11.420]Grace has some visual impairments
[00:01:13.140]and Rhonda has brought an iPad
[00:01:15.560]so Grace can make it as big or little as she needs to.
[00:01:18.210]And she makes sure that everybody feels part of the group
[00:01:22.060]and that everybody has the same tools
[00:01:24.200]that everybody else does,
[00:01:25.240]and for that, we are forever grateful.
[00:01:31.250]Music has a number of therapeutic effects,
[00:01:33.870]but there is something about our being able
[00:01:37.130]to accomplish something together
[00:01:38.810]and to engage in the arts together
[00:01:41.040]that makes our world richer
[00:01:43.950]and helps us experience humanity
[00:01:46.130]in a very meaningful way.
[00:01:49.081]Go Big Red!
[00:01:52.024]♪ This is me ♪

[00:01:54.557]I know a choir you should go to.
[00:01:57.825]It's pretty awesome being in it.
[00:02:01.368]♪ Oh, oh, oh, oh ♪
[00:02:04.563]♪ This is me ♪
