FREEDOM SINGS USA *WHO ARE THEY?
Freedom Sings USA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit based in Chattanooga Tennessee founded in 2019. They pair professional songwriters with veterans, active military and their families to help them tell their stories through song. They hold weekly ongoing classes on Wednesday mornings and Thursday nights in Chattanooga, Tennessee and sponsor events and group retreats throughout the U.S. including right here on the Western Slope Of Colorado through Welcome Home Alliance for Veterans. Those we serve need no musical background, only the desire to tell their story. In a typical session, the songwriter listens and encourages the participant to lay out the "puzzle pieces" of his or her experience. Together, they arrange those pieces into verses and choruses. The result is a complete song that they can call their own, then as alumni they have the support every week of other veterans who are alumni and to support new veterans just writing their songs. Chattanooga started as a prior program but outgrew that concept to want to have ongoing support for the veteran and be a dependable source they can rely on.
