"She raises the roof!"

"Therese has a rare gift hands are like wings,
her voice a melody.
A rare gift. It is potent magic!"

Chris Casey, Educator

"What a transporting afternoon of storytelling and performance. I am not sure I’ve recovered yet. Thérèsé's talent, warmth, passion, intelligence, beautiful singing voice haunt me yet. And who could forget the words of children speaking the words of children’s rights between the stories which ingrained in our souls humanity’s need to nurture its children? Her program reminded us how all over the planet children are daily sacrificed to the antigods of greed and materialism. And yet, she managed that storytelling magic: the ability to convey a message that inspires hope and action for good through bypassing the vein of guilt. The stories, the love, the passion you bring…may yet ripple out and produce the change you so desire: attention and equity for all children…She brought the house down, literally and figuratively!"
