About The Angel Band Project:
The Angel Band Project came about as a result of the tragic loss of Teresa Butz in 2009 to a horrible act of sexual violence. After witnessing the emotionally powerful singing at the funeral from Teresa’s musically talented family and partner, Teresa’s lifelong best friends were inspired to record them. Teresa’s brother, Norbert Leo Butz, and Teresa’s surviving partner, Jennifer Hopper, joined their efforts.
Their aim was simple: to capture the power in the music they heard to help others heal from the effects of sexual violence. The resulting benefit album not only helped them heal, but gave them the inspiration to create the country’s first music therapy program designed to treat survivors of sexual violence. The organization currently funds programs in St. Louis, MO, New York, NY and Seattle, WA.
All proceeds from this event will provide life-affirming music therapy for survivors in crisis.
