An Irish inspiration

This Friday, Project Literacy Kelowna is celebrating 25 years of work in Kelowna. The organization is recognizing the volunteers who help people with reading, math skills and more. The Words and Wine Gala features food, drink and music by Irish singer songwriter Julie Feeney. The internationally acclaimed musician is flying in from New York just to play the show. Robert Jung helped bring her here. He spoke with Daybreak's Chris Walker about how he discovered Julie's music during a difficult time in his life.
