Music for A Cause


Twenty-seven Jane Long and Grady Middle school students engaged in a semester long Music Production class during the spring of 2010 offered by Texas Beacon of Light Outreach in partnership with the nationally recognized Citizen Schools Program. Students were taught by Janece Simpson and Executive Director, Shanceler Terry. “We love returning to Jane Long. Here it feels like home. This year adding Grady Middle School to our teaching rotation has been an exciting addition.”


Students were given a ten week challenge to write, produce and perform a song that promotes a particular world or community concern. Jane Long students not only performed but won second place in the infamous Jane Long Talent Show, performing “We Must Come Together”, a song focusing on the tragedy in Haiti and challenging all to look beyond their worlds and focus on others. Grady Middle School students focused on a global concern – saving the environment.


“It was an amazing night. We are so proud of our students,” stated Janece Simpson.
