Samantha Kirshtein + YouNow

From big benefit concerts like Live 8 to individual songs like John Lennon’s “Imagine”, music is often used for a greater purpose; Connection. If people of all walks of life, shapes and colors can connect through a favorite melody maybe everyone can join forces to support the same cause, inspire a real change. It’s that powerful notion of connection that has led Indaba member, Samantha Kirshtein, to write her most important song.
