Last weekend my family went to see THUNDER SOUL. Presented by Jamie Foxx, this joyful movie follows the extraordinary alumni from Houston’s storied Kashmere High School Stage Band, who return home after 35 years to play a tribute concert for the 92-year-old “Prof,” their beloved band leader who broke the color barrier and transformed the school’s struggling jazz band into a world-class funk powerhouse in the early 1970s.
This is an amazing story of the power of music to change lives, and a testament to the impact of mentoring young people. Since it's a "small" movie, it will probably only be at the Rave through next weekend. It's not to be missed - inspiring for anybody who is or has ever been a kid, parent, or grandparent!
