I am being completely honest when I tell you that practice was over and everyone was just sitting around and talking. It was as if everyone likes each other or something?? But seriously, a choir that practices together, stays together!!
I get a glimpse of someone who came to our fireside and felt love for the first time in a long time.I look out into the audience and can see what it looks like on someone’s face to feel hope again.
