Making Connection Through Music
11 year old Keila Wakao | TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet

For Keila Wakao, music was a way for her to cope with the hardest time of her life: her father's diagnosis with cancer. At 11 years old, Keila was overwhelmed by this life-changing news, but playing her violin gave her a way to show her father how much she loved him. In this beautiful talk and performance, Keila shares the beautiful music that helped them both survive.
