ā€œIā€™d never had anyone there to support me.ā€ You’d never guess it, hearing foster child Adreanna “AJ” Patterson sing. She attributes much of the confidence and skill she exhibits now to her participation in The Possibility Project, who use the arts to empower youth to change their lives and communities for the better. AJ wrote the song “Shine” with professional composer Malcolm Cross, who directed a Possiblity Project musical in which she took part, and who helped develop her natural talent into the vibrant and soulful voice you hear on “Shine”. Hear Malcolm accompany her in a really fantastic performance of this potent inspirational song.

On Camera with Painter Calvin Grimm

The canvases of abstract expressionist painter Calvin Grimm draw their power from his longstanding relationship with the natural world. His work and experience stand as testament to the fulfillment offered by such a relationship. He notes that a powerful, direct connection to our environment seems conspicuously absent from many aspects of modern life. Watch the interview for more on spiritual peace, oil spills, sea kayaking and art.
