Hiland inmates send messages of love to their children
It’s not every day that people go to prison expecting to have a good time. But on Saturday at 1 p.m., the public is invited to a community concert at the Hiland Mountain Correctional Center.
The occasion: to hear songs from the “Lullaby Project,” which brings together Hiland moms and local musicians to write lullabies for the inmate’s children.
This is the second year of the project – with a new group of inmates and musicians.
This week on Frontiers, Rhonda McBride and photojournalist Will Mader spent time with Shawn Muese’ Fesagaiga, who took part in the program last year as an inmate.
Now, she’s back at Hiland, but not to serve time – instead, to mentor other inmates. She also performs two of the songs on this year’s Lullaby CD.
Fesagaiga says the lullaby she wrote last year, “Angels from Heaven,” helped her to reunite with her children when she was released this spring.
Here’s a preview of this week’s Frontiers, “Lullaby 2017: Paying it Forward,” which airs on Sunday, November 19, at 4:30 and 10:30 p.m.
