Let Them Roar’s New Single Raises Funds for Immigrants
Local band Let Them Roar is releasing a new single and music video on June 20 called “I See My Light,” a song inspired by four immigrant women who took sanctuary in Colorado to keep their families together: Sandra Lopez, Rosa Sabido, Ingrid Encalada Latorre, and Araceli Velazquez. Let Them Roar wrote the song after being moved by these women’s stories, which the band feels have the power to bring communities together. The song, video, and artwork are available for purchase at LetThemRoar.com, where information about the sanctuary movement is also available. All proceeds will be donated to the sanctuary movement in Colorado. The band is planning launch parties on June 20 and 21, with details forthcoming on the website.

Summer of Music Sponsorships Still Available
In 1985, the Summer of Jazz was launched as a way to bring together community and celebrate the sounds of Jazz. Over the years, the focus has expanded to include many forms of music, but the values of bringing people together, enjoying picnics, summer mountain evenings and great music continues to be a strong Glenwood Springs tradition. Now in its ninth season, the Glenwood Springs Summer of Music continues to meet with great success. These efforts would not be possible without generous sponsors and donors. Sponsorship opportunities are still available to continue the Summer of Music, which kicks off this month on June 26 at 6:30 p.m. in Two Rivers Park. Email GlenwoodSpringsSummerOfMusic@gmail.com for details on how you can support.
