Diamonds Under Pressure

AP7U6954The soundtrack of Determined 2 Make It was created and performed by the boys and girls of the Southeast Michigan Juvenile Justice System in Youth Arts Alliance! music workshops. Most of these young people are featured in the documentary along with workshop facilitators, Ben Cohen, Akili Jackson and Yusuf Lateef of Radiant City.  The sound is mostly hip hop with original lyrics written by the youth with their poetry, stories of pain and suffering, and hopes and dreams for the future. Radiant City produced an album, Diamonds Under Pressure, with the 9 songs created in the workshops. To listen to the tracks, click on the following link:
