Community outreach has long been a part of Dave Jay’s mission to raise children’s spirits. The singer has an ongoing relationship with Music That Heals, and has performed his highly acclaimed show, Kids Love Dave Jay (KLDJ), for the organization along with many others including, the Special Kids Intervention Program. Dave has a sensitive insight into the needs of these special children,” says Program Director Natalie Postelnek.


Dave Jay uses character-driven original music, physical humor and his exuberant personality to delight kids of all ages. His highly acclaimed KLDJ show incorporates rhythm, movement, a puppet and other fun surprises to get children on their feet, joining Jay in song and interacting with characters like Buck B’Gak the chicken or The Beatles. Kids and adults can’t resist the infectious energy Dave Jay brings into the room. “I see myself as an artist” remarks Jay, “the children’s smiles are the works I passionately create upon my canvas.”


For the month of February, Dave Jay is honoring one of the most important foundations of childhood – friendship – and raising awareness for Music That Heals, an organization he passionately champions.
