“It was a terribly painful recovery, but I always felt better when there was
music around. A family friend of mine would come into my hospital room everyday and play all of my favorite songs. Even though it hurt too much to sing, I was always humming along. The music made it feel like I was never hurt to begin with; it went deeper than the physical pain. Music healed my soul; that’s when I fell in love with it.” Eight years later, at age 12, Kenzie received a full medical release. Kenzie is now partnered with a non-profit organization as the Colorado State Ambassador for Blue Star Connection, an organization that provides musical instruments for the purpose of music therapy to children who suffer from mental and/or physical illness and trauma. Because she understands the level of healing that music can provide, Kenzie is a true ambassador for Blue Star.
