It speaks to our humanity, while providing hope and a vision for the future. Watch the full interview:
Now it’s time to dive Behind The Mic with Shure Audio Engineer Jack Drury. Join him behind the scenes at the Signature Brew Taproom to talk you through the microphones we used to capture Jake's performance.
