Reviews for Society Of Singers

Role: Board Member
Rating: 5 stars  

As one of the founders of SOS, I am extremely pleased to see its wonderful success acknowledged. When Gilda Maiken, Donna Manners, Randy Van Horn and I put the organization together and asked Ginny Mancini to be our the first president, we were filled with expectations of being able to benefit all singers. I had the great pleasure ,while serving as President of the Hollywood Media Association, to present the first donation of a measly $250 from that organization to Tony Martin as the prepresentative of the Society of Singers. That was the original seed money that helped defray the start up funds needed.

I am very proud of my association with SOS and can only give my best wishes for its continued success.

I served as the first Secretary and later a VP and helped in fund raising. It ws such a pleasure to see the first assistance go out to Ella Mae Morris who was so very deserving of our help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I can't think of any changes as I am no longer a member of the board of directors.

I joined the Society Of Singers Board because I believe in the mission of the organization to help singers in need. Through financial assistance, scholarships and counseling, I believe that SOS enables life-long music fans like myself to give something back to singers who have or will touch so many people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing and hearing the testimonials from singers that have benefited from the services of SOS.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get more people involved in helping this great cause.
