THE REAL DEAL
THE REAL DEAL is a song that addresses the need to talk about what’s really going on. It birthed the idea of THE REAL DEAL being more than just a song with a positive message, but a chance for open discussion and expression with people coming together to share stories and healing together through the creative arts.
With the increasing rate of suicide across Australia its important that we start addressing the core issues by dealing with trauma and addiction cycles, talking about domestic violence and how to be safe, providing alternatives to quick fixes by coming up with solutions that will last and bring healing to communities.
Science tells us that music affects both sides of the brain and can be a powerful tool for creating new positive neural pathways. It is my hope that THE REAL DEAL song will bring a message of hope to someone who needs it right on time. The snap-bands have been made to serve as a reminder of the positive message in the song. Every time a person feels down they can snap it on their wrist as a distraction from negative thoughts and remind themselves that they are loved no matter what!
THE REAL DEAL concept is a heartbeat for connection and community, to see restoration, to listen and be heard, to accept and be real with each other as we journey life together. We can’t change the past but we sure can make a future !!!
