I have my mother's voice

How can music save us from…ourselves? This week we hear from Ena Marie Abel-Mireles, a music teacher from Portland, Oregon. Ena laughs and sings and is open about the fact that she regularly has suicidal ideations. When Ena was 13, a traumatic life-altering event happened to her. That one moment has directly affected her passion for living, giving and teaching people how to sing.

Her story is entitled. “I have my mother's voice.”
