- It's my rock, it's what makes me tick
and I've loved it from a young age
and I can't imagine life without it.
It's what really enables us to kind communicate.
The performing arts, the classical arts,
all of it, it's what makes us human.
- It's an exciting time for the arts.
So many people are reached that couldn't have been before.
- [Renee] Without PBS, I don't know if I'd be a singer,
I don't know if I would have had that spark.
- [Joshua] Public broadcasting is something I grew up with,
so, you know, my parents always had it on.
I don't think there's a better bang for your buck
than putting it into the arts.
I think we need the arts more than ever.
