Carla Canales, Founder/Director of The Canales Project, is pleased to announce our newest initiative, Hear Her Song! Created to celebrate and give voice to stories of women who are changing the world for the better, Hear Her Song brings together an extraordinary array of songwriters, musicians, singers and artists to create songs, performances and recordings that will offer new and powerful insights into the nature of women’s leadership and the challenges women face worldwide.
Through collaboration with partner organizations Vital Voices and Women Like Us Foundation, 20 distinguished women were selected to be honored for their achievements and courageous life choices, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former First Lady Michelle Obama, Chief Theresa Kachindamoto, Sister Marilyn Lacey, and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Each of the honorees were provided with questions to help provide insights into the critical choices they have made on their paths to success, choices that helped them overcome obstacles and realize their visions. The answers to these questions were turned into lyrics by TCP's Poet-in-Residence,
Jacqueline Suskin, and furthermore formed into complete songs by selected emerging female composers, under the guidance of the project’s Music Director, Kurt Crowley, who is perhaps best known as the music director of the Broadway musical Hamilton. These composers include Sarah Elizabeth Charles, Emily Estefan, Emily Hall, Molly Joyce, Tania León, and Georgia Stitt.
