I was a kid in the street robbing houses, doing drugs, heading for crime. I got to go to school everyday and play my trumpet in my junior high, and it gave me something to believe in. Music is the voice of God, man. It’s the thing that keeps us together. It crosses every boundary that exists. Every boundary. I’m talking about boundaries to other dimensions beyond ethnic, economic, social-economic and every boundary. Music brings us together. Music is the voice of the people. Music is love. Music saved my life.
