The Educators Say
“Our goal throughout
this week was to send the message of RESPECT and HARMONY

and you helped us accomplish this task. One of our teachers
said it so well, ‘Gary showed us an extraordinary
way to teach the ordinary!’ ”

to sing and chant all day. They loved the performance
as I did. The lyrics
have a powerful positive message so relevant for children

outstanding performer; great songs, positive messages.
