Thank you for leaning into music and helping other people…to find some solace amidst this pandemic.
I’m so grateful to you for this community.
- Crys Matthews, social justice music maker, Nashville
This is an amazing, amazing experience. I seriously don’t know how I would have made it through the pandemic without the Daily Antidote, it was truly a life saver when I desperately needed a place to sing and to be with people. I think the Daily Antidote really saved lives. It saved my life, it saved spirit, it saved good mood, it saved graciousness, and I am very very happy to be a part of it.
- Ysaye Barnwell, former Sweet Honey in the Rock, DC

Stephen and Jo, I need to go,
but I don’t I don’t wanna go home.
Shine like I’m supposed to do,
even through the Zoom, I still feel close to you.

This changed my life in many ways… now looking at a family that has been created from all across the world. Especially in the last year, when there was a lot of difficulty and a lot of pain going throughout people’s hearts... and through that time, we were able to create such a beautiful imagination.

I know that for so many people, this has been an extraordinary anchor.

There’s so much reciprocal joy that happens here.

I want to thank the DAS for introducing me to music I may have otherwise not found.
The Daily Antidote of Song has been a major factor in my recovery,
it’s just been so wonderful to experience the love and the joy.
- Jim Harkless, Jubilee Voices, MD
When there are real needs that are really met, that’s when things flourish. This is flourishing because real needs are being met. It feeds us, it nourishes all of us, because the folks who are giving are also receiving.

Daily Antidote is a silver lining of the pandemic.
