I had the wonderful delight to talk to film composer James Lavino today. James studied music at The Juilliard School in New York City. He recently scored the Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning HBO documentary film “Which Way Home.” He talked about that film and how emotion has universal themes regardless of ethnicity. It is something that binds us all together. I found this to be so true when our team was in Kenya a few weeks ago. Although there were language barriers, there were no barriers to understanding the emotions that were conveyed. We felt the appreciation and thankfulness of our most gracious Kenyan hosts. And I believe they sensed our broken hearts as we visited their villages and saw deplorable conditions and children in such need.

Having grown up in a family where music has always been so important, I am excited to see what James will create that will help bring our story to life.
