A Door County musician is helping disadvantaged youth with opportunities in music a half a world away. Hans Christian, owner of Studio 330 in Sturgeon Bay, has worked with vocalist Holly Olm to produce a song called “YOU” that is a fundraising tool for the International Youth Music Project. The program provides musical education for HIV-positive children in Africa. Christian explains the impact that the project is providing for children and orphans in Kenya and Uganda.
Christian adds that the International Youth Music Project gives many disadvantaged children in Africa opportunities for self-expression through music, as well as educational opportunities in music production. The project was founded by Nashville-based singer Aaron English. Nearly $2000 has already been raised locally by Christian and Olm to date with a goal of $5,000.
