Rain Perry's Let's Be Brave

Singer-songwriter Rain Perry brings you good ideas from inspiring people for troubled times. Then, she composes a song based on each interview! In a time of divisiveness and outrage, let's bring out the best in ourselves and gather inspiration and hope from unexpected role models: a cop who fights gangs by teaching kids music; a border lawyer working to reunite families; a small town teacher saving the world with personal stories, and more.

We have big challenges facing us. Let's be brave.
