Your performances were a highlight of my week. While it is true, I can see you all at home in Charlotte, it is even more special when I get to see the reaction of our global LGBT family when they see how amazing you are! Kudos to every one of you in One Voice and Sotto Voce!

Four years ago I met and sang with these awesome peeps from One Voice Charlotte in Denver at GALA 2012, and last week we gathered again in Denver. They sang stunningly, and I was overjoyed to reconnect with them, hear their incredible performances, and share the love and joy that is GALA Festival again!

One Voice of Charlotte, the 3rd GALA showstopper, Gerald Gurss conductor and composer. Sublime beauty, folks.
I’ve loved this chorus since their GALA set 4 years ago (one word: Santorum). The whole program was amazing, and this year’s set raised the bar even further. They are one of my absolute favorite GALA choruses.
GALA Festival 2016 has been a career highlight for sure! One Voice Chorus of Charlotte, thank you for singing with precision and heart. One Voice was honored to be selected as a “showstopper” of the festival. I’m beyond humbled. Glenda R Elliott: Certain kinds of love never die! Thank you for your beautiful story!

One Voice from Charlotte, NC. … it (Glenda & Lauree) was amazing. I had opportunity to hear it performed twice. Still blown away.

The story of the creation of the song, and the story within the song, hit me right in the gut and reduced me to tears. It was so beautiful, and so heart-wrenching for me on so many levels. Thank you, Glenda and Gerald, for yet another moment that demonstrates the power of music, and the power of love.
For me, this (Glenda & Lauree) was the most heart wrenchingly beautiful performance of GALA.
Biggest “ugly cry” yet!!
