"Just wanted to drop you a line to say how much we enjoyed your shows at our 2 libraries. We had lots of comments on how fun, positive, and encouraging your songs were. I took my CDs home and listened to them and especially liked the song "Tools". It gave me goosebumps. What a great message! Keep up the good work!"
