SANFORD, Fla. -- As the George Zimmerman murder trial unfolds, one woman is using her voice to try to ease racial tensions in central Florida.
Faye Henderson is singing a song for Sanford.
"This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine, this little light of mine. You gotta let it shine. If you do other things, you're not letting it shine," Henderson said and sang.
Henderson thinks it's time that the City of Sanford shined.
She said she saw her community destroyed after Trayvon Martin was killed, and is trying to build it back up through music.
"Whatever the outcome is, we must trust God, and we must trust the judicial system. This is our country, this is our land, this is our home," Henderson said.
To save their home, a group of women from her church choir got together and started singing in public, and to strangers.
To lift them up and bring them together.
"You don't forget who you are or where you came from," she said.
They sing about the history of the city, about Trayvon and his family, and she says most importantly about forgiveness.
"We're telling everyone just keep peace. Keep peace in your mind, in your heart."
