The Singing Brothers of Stilwell are a collection of students from the Martha E. Stilwell School of the Arts in Jonesboro.
The group of black and hispanic teenageers just wrapped up a performance at the The National Association for Music Education conference in Texas.
GPB's Leah Fleming traveled to a recent rehearsal to hear from young men like Cardell Smart, who talked about the importance of music in his life.
Leah also spoke with the founder of the group, Jimmy Cheek, about his vision for the program.
