You’re His Child is a heartfelt meditation on religion, family, and song. Through live music, sound, and her performative interaction with archival recordings, actor Emmy Bean engages the history of her great-grandfather—a kitchen-table hymn singer from rural Missouri—telling stories about family and music through his voice and her own.

Bean’s performance begins immediately following Vanessa Valliere’s 15 minute opener.
