Schwartz’s composition weaves music with gripping and hopeful lyrics based on texts from the It Gets Better Project. Dan Savage, co-founder of the Project, worked with Schwartz as he created “Testimony.”
“I liked using the words of the people who contributed to the ‘It Gets Better Project,'” said Schwartz in a statement. “So 'Testimony' is quite authentic in terms of what’s being expressed and then I just set it musically.”
"Testimony" was performed by the 275 members of San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus. To view the performance, click below.
