Bio: Founded in 2016 by award winning musicians Steph Johnson and Nina Deering, Voices of Our City Choir was created in response to the housing and homelessness crisis in San Diego. The choir serves as a space for mutual aid and community building, as well as giving voice to San Diego’s homeless community, past and present. In a short period of time (only a year and a half) the choir has helped more than 29 of their unsheltered singers to secure safe housing and/or shelter. Voices of Our City offers assistance to members with clothing, food, transportation, health services and more with the help of donors, volunteers and the money they raise from their live performances.
