A friend of mine in college recruited me to volunteer for Camp Kudzu in 2008. One week, and I was hooked. This happened to be the year after the legendary Jon Allmett passed away. I saw the effect of his legacy immediately, as the music program that he built defined the culture at the camp and the enthusiasm of the kids was something that I had never seen before. I’ve admired and been inspired by Jon ever since.
A few years later as I ventured into a career as a professional musician, Kudzu asked me to step up and help continue the music programs, and I have been there every year since, trying to do Jon Allmett’s legacy justice.
I wrote “Where the Kudzu Grows” as a reflection of the culture that I’ve witnessed at Kudzu that helps these gets deal with this terrible disease called Diabetes. It’s all about the community, and the feeling that you’ll never again be alone when you are struggling.
