Choir Serving the Homeless Makes Carnegie Hall Debut - A Tempo, Saturday at 7 pm
Since joining the Dallas Street Choir in April of 2016, Carmelo Cabrera has found a new source of hope as he struggles to navigate the challenges of being homeless.
"Singing - it allows me to say, hey, I really am somebody, and my voice does count, and I can be heard," said Cabrera, who along with other members of the choir made their Carnegie Hall debut this past Wednesday.
Founded in 2014 by Jonathan Palant, who also directs the Credo Choir, the ensemble is open to those facing homelessness in the Dallas, TX area. After its Carnegie Hall debut, the choir performed Thursday at the National Cathedral. This week on A Tempo (6/17 at 7 pm), A Tempo host Rachel Katz will interview Palant and Cabrera about the concert experience and the impact the choir has had on its members and community.
