She was 15 when she gave birth to him. Shawn tells the moving, powerful story of him Mom.
Toronto Song Project presents Shawn Costanzo.
On the one hand, he had an idyllic, Tom Sawyer like childhood: free-range, unsupervised, roaming his west end neighborhood down to the Humber River. On the hand, his teenage Mom was neglectful, and their relationship was short lived. Shawn is an inspiration and a glowing example of resilience and overcoming pain and loss. And that singing is the best therapy.
