#UKirkMixtape Vol. 2 is here!

The past few weeks we've been collecting new songs for the #ukirk mixtape... for this volume we asked y'all to add a song that reminds you that you've changed, since Lent is a season that honors our ability to change. We got some great submissions, including Avril Lavigne, Kenny Loggins, Britney Spears, David Bowie, Trisha Yearwood, Chance the Rapper, and even a surprising television theme... Thank you for sharing these songs and stories with us. We had a blast hanging out and listening with our friends at MTSU this week. And you can continue listening with us on Spotify... Click the mixtape above, or find the link on our social medias.
