- ...marvelous, music and message-laden production... it was felt deeply by the audience. Everyone on the stage was a part of the harmonious whole and you radiated such love and energy throughout.

- We loved the concert tonight; you really got us thinking about a lot of things. Yes, as you said tonight, we're all in this together.

- Inspiring, fun and moving. And the band - WOW!  What talent!

- I was moved throughout by the power and passion and joy and compassion in your voice and the mastery of your presence and connection with the audience! The band of course was KILLER FAB! Wow!!!

- I enjoyed, especially the Yiddish Tango, which moved me to tears.

- Your message of tolerance and inclusion came across loud and clear.

- What I was not prepared for, though, was your rendition of the Japanese song - done with heart and subtlety which showed the your vocal range and strength. Very moving.
