This Performance by Patti Smith & 250 back-up singers is giving me Hope (& Goosebumps).

Patti Smith urges us to use our voices.

That’s it.

That’s the article. That’s the share. That’s the story.

This incredible powerhouse of a woman and 250 back-up singers just brought tears to my eyes and hope to my heart as I listened to this performance of “People Have The Power” from 2019.

If anyone still needs a rallying cry to register and vote, this is it.

If anyone needs to be reminded of the power of community and coming together as one, this is it.

If anyone needs a little faith restored in the power of democracy, this is it.

If you, like me, needed a little hope in your heart, you’ll find it here.


Listen for yourself and harness your voice: 


Some of the best comments from YouTube:
