Young@Heart Chorus is featured in a special segment entitled “Champions for Change” on CNN which airs today Tuesday, May 14th at 7:45 AM.

The special will air again during the 11 AM hour Wednesday May 15 and during the 8pm hour on Saturday May 18. Watch it now here.

CNN anchor John Berman first met Young@Heart in 2008. 11 years later we were still on his mind… so he came back to see us as part of CNN’s Champions For Change, a week-long series featuring journalists revisiting stories and people that have had a lasting impact on them.

When CNN’s John Berman first met the Young@Heart Chorus in 2008, the remarkable group of senior citizens was bringing worldwide audiences to their feet. The chorus members — ranging from 75-90 years young — break all the rules, belting out the most surprising range of rock-n-roll hits. Today, they go even further: their collaboration with young prison inmates spreads the message that life can be fulfilling whatever the obstacles. 

Special thanks to John Berman and his entire team for featuring us and highlighting our work again on the program.
