Hi, my name is Tamara Fyke. And this is the story of Love In A Big World.
I started working with kids when I was in high school – camps, community organizations, schools. After graduating from college, I was a substitute teacher for urban schools in Nashville. The kids were tough, but I told them that if we had a good day I’d sing for them. While we were waiting for the buses to be called, I’d sing…they sang too…and we’d talk about life. My 12 year-old students told me that they thought they would die before the age of 21 because of the trauma they had experienced in their world. I thought, “Can music be used to give kids hope and teach them about making wise choices?” And Love In A Big World was born.
