Students​ ​at​ ​the​ ​Dallas​ ​Academy​ ​of​ ​Music​ ​and​ ​Performing​ ​Arts​ ​and​ ​well-known​ ​Nashville​ ​producers have​ ​teamed​ ​up​ ​to​ ​re-record​ ​Michael​ ​Jackson’s​ ​hit,​ ​“Heal​ ​the​ ​World,”​ ​in​ ​celebration​ ​of​ ​the​ ​song’s 25th​ ​Anniversary.​ ​Even​ ​after​ ​25​ ​years,​ ​this​ ​song​ ​remains​ ​relevant,​ ​especially​ ​now.
DAMPA’s​ ​version​ ​of​ ​”Heal​ ​The​ ​World”​ ​is​ ​now​ ​available​ ​on​ ​iTunes,​ ​Spotify,​ ​Amazon,​ ​and​ ​CDBaby. The​ ​song​ ​was​ ​originally​ ​created​ ​as​ ​a​ ​gift​ ​to​ ​those​ ​affected​ ​by​ ​Hurricane​ ​Harvey.​ ​However,​ ​in​ ​light​ ​of the​ ​recent​ ​tragedies​ ​across​ ​the​ ​US,​ ​all​ ​proceeds​ ​are​ ​for​ ​the​ ​RedCross​ ​to​ ​allocate​ ​to​ ​those​ ​most​ ​in need.

“Heal​ ​The​ ​World”​ ​features​ ​the​ ​DAMPA​ ​Ensemble​ ​-​ ​student​ ​vocalists​ ​who​ ​were​ ​nominated​ ​by​ ​their teachers​ ​in​ ​the​ ​voice​ ​and​ ​musical​ ​theatre​ ​departments.​ ​The​ ​students​ ​enjoyed​ ​working​ ​together​ ​and combining​ ​their​ ​amazing​ ​talents​ ​to​ ​convey​ ​such​ ​a​ ​beautiful​ ​message.​ ​They​ ​had​ ​a​ ​great​ ​time performing​ ​the​ ​song​ ​and​ ​learning​ ​about​ ​the​ ​studio​ ​recording​ ​process.

The​ ​song​ ​was​ ​produced​ ​by​ ​Nashville​ ​producer​ ​Christopher​ ​Harris​ ​and​ ​Lisa​ ​Jenkins,​ ​Owner​ ​and CEO​ ​of​ ​DAMPA.​ ​The​ ​students​ ​were​ ​directed​ ​by​ ​DAMPA​ ​instructor​ ​Isaac​ ​Leaverton.​ ​Also​ ​featured​ ​on the​ ​track​ ​is​ ​guest​ ​artist​ ​Jason​ ​Eskridge.​ ​As​ ​a​ ​performer​ ​in​ ​Nashville,​ ​Eskridge​ ​has​ ​worked​ ​as​ ​a background​ ​vocalist​ ​and/or​ ​opening​ ​act​ ​for​ ​Zac​ ​Brown​ ​Band,​ ​Lyle​ ​Lovett,​ ​Randy​ ​Travis,​ ​and​ ​others.
