I had the pleasure of seeing you perform a concert today for second graders at Dallastown. It was fabulous and that’s all that my students could talk about for the rest of the day! I was very excited to learn that you would be our performer this year because I vividly remember a concert that you gave at MY elementary school! When you played “Happy Go Lucky Shoes” I felt like I was in 5th grade again! I just wanted to thank you for being so inspiring to our youth and for delivering such valuable messages throughout your performance. Wishing you continued success and hoping to see another concert soon!
