“I wanted to thank you. Singing and music have been my lifeline from a very grim personal place. When I first started I was at a vulnerable, hurting time. And the music healed…., the friendship of the others has been a help, but music itself has a power, music has been like the water that has fed the blossom, cleaned the wound.”
