creativity is a passion for the women of Southern Halo. “Education and
music are important to us,” reflects 21-year-old Natalia Morris, the
group’s principal songwriter. “High School Nation brings artists
like us in to perform for students and we’re able to talk with them and
encourage them. The organization also donates a recording studio to each
school they visit. It’s pretty amazing.”
young women are committed to ensuring that all students have access to
the knowledge that they – and others like them – have learned through
challenging work … and the occasional misadventure. The Backstage Pass Series offered
at GRAMMY Museum Mississippi targets kids grades three and up – and
offers students the opportunity to explore a variety of music careers,
hear artists’ stories first-hand, and meet industry professionals. This
allows for a more realistic understanding of the level of talent,
commitment, and perseverance it takes to succeed in the music business.

The siblings were excited to participate in the Series.
“The focus is on younger kids, and I remember being so full of emotion
and creativity at that age,” notes drummer Christina, now 19. “Music is a
great vehicle that encourages people to share thoughts and feelings
with others who might relate,” adds bassist Hannah, the youngest member
at 18. “Our experience is that it definitely brings folks closer.”
In addition to performing, Southern Halo has beenpromoting
their new single, “I Think Too Much,” from their current album, JUST
LIKE IN THE MOVIES, and has visited radio stations in Alabama, Illinois,
Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin, and West Virginia this
