Popular Music alums, MUNA featured in heartwarming Vice video

The band MUNA, which was formed by Thornton Popular Music alumni Katie Gavin (BA ’15) and Josette Maskin (’16), along with Naomi McPherson, recently sat down to record a video for Vice’s Noisey series “Call Your Dad” — but things didn’t go exactly as planned.

When band member Josette rang up her South African father on speakerphone, he quickly turned the lighthearted exercise into an inspiring, heartfelt testimony about the power of music to affect social change.
