Take a trip across time and space to witness this powerful moment from Welcome Campers 2019: Aisha Badru’s poignant nighttime performance of her original song “Bridges.” As fireworks go off overhead and campers look into the campfire to roast marshmallows, Badru closes her eyes and looks into her own storybook. The lyrics of “Bridges” carefully illuminate the true weight of an earnest commitment to another person. But although promises are never certain, they are often the only way forward. And as she sings, “I’ll stick through it / Oh, I swear,” her sandpapery voice smooths the fear out of every corner and edge.
