Archie Charles Williams is a 59-year-old singer from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. When he was 22 years old, he was wrongly convicted of a crime he didn't commit and was sentenced to life in prison without parole. He spent the next 37 years locked away before finally being released in 2019. The main thing that got Archie through this time was music. He joined the "church" choir in the prison and found comfort. He even formed his own band with other inmates, saying, "When I sung, people would come to listen. They loved it and wanted to hear me. It brought me joy. Music made me feel connected to the world."
