Lubbock musician performs for reunified families in the Rio Grand Valley

Posted: Updated:
BROWNSVILLE, Texas -

"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain," that's a quote from Bob Marley. Matt Morgan, a Lubbock musician, traveled to the Rio Grand Valley to do just that -- ease the pain for families separated at the border, using what he said is his God-given talent.

"You know they are going through such trouble, but there is people here that care," said Morgan. "There are people who want to see them reunited with their families."

Morgan said as a musician his life tends to be always on the go, but he doesn't turn a blind eye to what is happening in the country. The separated children at the border has been a consistent headline stuck in his mind. Morgan packed his bags and drove down to the Rio Grand Valley to perform for reunified families, hoping to bring some peace of mind.

He said regardless of your political affiliation or your views on immigration these migrants should be treated like people. 

"At the end of the day we are all human," said Morgan. "No matter where you are from, no matter where you are born you know we all have a heart we all have a soul, we all have thoughts, feelings and emotions."

During his trip to the Rio Grand Valley Morgan got a chance to perform at a refugee and homeless shelter in Brownsville and at the Catholic Charities Hospite center in McAllen. Morgan hopes that through his music he is able to connect with these migrant families and bring a sense of reassurance while they deal with the immigration process.
