Students Compose Powerful Song Inspired by Boston Marathon Attacks

BOSTON, Mass. — One year ago, Berklee College of Music students Callie Benjamin and Ben Johnston saw the Boston Marathon bombings from different perspectives.

Callie witnessed the bombings first-hand while Ben saw the attacks through the eyes of a combat veteran.

Both turned to music to help process the traumatic event that occurred just blocks from the school.

The result was ‘I Don’t Have a Song for That’, a powerful song inspired by the tragedy.

In the video above, the song was performed by fellow Berklee College of Music students on the April 15 anniversary of the marathon attacks and posted to the college’s YouTube channel.

The 2014 Boston Marathon takes place on Monday, April 21.
