Once-homeless youth debuts album
January 8, 2014

One of my favorite blogs, Colorlines, posted a video that caught my attention. It’s a link to a video about Lesedi Lo-Fi, an up-and-coming artist whose music on the street caught the attention of a major record producer. While his pop music is upbeat, the lyrics in his debut album “Street Faces” refer back to his struggles of a life on the street as a homeless youth.

Lesedi Lo-Fi’s story reminds me that young people who experience homelessness, just like any other young people, have gifts and talents to offer their communities if they are just given a chance to do so. Take a listen!
