“It is a privilege to be present and involved in an event where all come together for the enrichment of humanity.


RenéMarie’s inborn desire is to be a part and support the brotherhood of mankind and she has spear headed this fundraiser. If we are here it's because a universal power is guiding us towards a purpose which is helping all those afflicted with Aphasia: “A language disorder caused by an injury affecting a persons ability to communicate.


And what a better way to do it than through music which has no boundaries and speaks the language of GOD.”
