Sometimes we find needed inspiration from the most simple of concepts. Music connects us. That is the comforting truth that the film “August Rush” carries. With an “Oliver Twist” like tale, we go through a child’s journey to find his parents, and the parent’s journey to find purpose.

In 2007, amid personal struggles, “August Rush” was a ray of hope and the positive motivation Shaun Booker needed to persevere. Since that time, Shaun has become an international artist and teaches the language of music to new students, young and old. It’s been over a year since our last Moving Music conversation, so we settled back, and dove into the movie that showed up for her just in time.
