Up With People is a nonprofit organization that uses performing arts to deliver messages of hope and goodwill throughout the world. Their show “A Song for the World” shines the spotlight on the people and organizations in each community they visit.

Up With People's visit to Naperville is sponsored by RR Donnelly and Sons. Heritage YMCA, KidsMatter, Kidz Kabaret and NCO Youth and Family Services are beneficiaries of the show proceeds.

Up With People was founded on the principle of using music as a means to communicate with and inspire people. In each city the cast visits, participants perform in a vibrant and moving musical stage show that brings the community together, highlighting local partnering organizations and sparking people to action in meeting the needs of their communities, countries and the world.
