RaeLynn: From Cello to Babette to The Voice

Why Music in Schools Matters to Her

Long before RaeLynn hit that famous stage on The Voice and made Blake Shelton turn his red chair around, she was a middle school student playing the cello in the orchestra.

Then in high school, she was playing Babette — the sassy French feather duster (and maid) — in her school’s production of Beauty and the Beast.

So, yes, having music in schools is very important to RaeLynn.

“Having that experience at school taught me discipline and rhythm and creativity. And for so many kids, that’s their livelihood,” RaeLynn told me last week when she was in Chicago promoting the 30th anniversary of National Music in Our Schools month with a week-long bus tour.
