'When it comes to taking care of mental health, the sky is the limit' (25 photos)

Algoma Family Services hosted the 3rd annual 'The Sky's the Limit' music showcase Thursday night

An audience comprised of mostly young people was treated to a special musical performance Thursday night at The Tech as Algoma Family Services (AFS) presented its 3rd annual ‘The Sky’s the Limit’ concert showcase, part of Children’s Mental Health Week.

With Constable Sonny Spina at the emcee helm, the evening included performances from Korah Collegiate’s Lime, Collage from Notre Dame du Sault, acoustic duo Dalton Povey and Chris Elgie, local superstar songstress Tianna Legacy, Christian rapper Bold Noize, and blues-rock trio Electric Church. In addition to a song in their heart, many attendees left the performance with prizes in-hand thanks to generous donations and volunteers from AFS Youth Engagement and YOUnion.

“We believe when it comes to taking care of your mental health, the sky is the limit!” says Ali Juma, Algoma Family Services CEO. “Music is one way to take care of mental health. I have a vision of building a music program at AFS, our very own School of Rock. This program would offer a way to heal, to grow and to find peace through music.”

Other ‘The Sky’s the Limit’ events hosted by AFS throughout Children’s Mental Health Week included free infant mental health workshops, a 3 on 3 basketball tournament, and drum fit and community kitchen events at area elementary and high schools.
