Sing For Your Life: a story of race, music, and family

Sing For Your Life

Product SKU: 9780316300674
Sales price: $28.00


This 2017-2018 CLSC selection by Daniel Bergner chronicles Ryan Speedo Green’s suspenseful, racially charged, and artistically intricate journey from solitary confinement to stardom. At the age of 12, Ryan was sent to Virginia's juvenile facility of last resort. Today, he is a rising star performing major roles at the Met and Europe’s most prestigious opera houses.  Bergner takes readers on Ryan’s path toward redemption and illuminates all that it takes — technically, creatively — to find and foster the beauty of the human voice. Through Ryan’s story and Bergner’s writing, Sing for Your Life sheds unique light on the enduring and complex realities of race in America.

The CLSC presentation will take place Thursday, June 29, 2017 at 3:30pm in the Hall of Philosophy.
