Wow... where do I start? Singers Marin is one of the best assets in Marin...hands down. It has been instrumental in changing the young lives of two girls for whom I will be forever in gratitude. I am the guardian of two beautiful girls whose mom died in a car accident at a young age and endured neglect and abuse from their former caregivers. And although these girls have been extremely resilient in overcoming their past traumas, they have been challenged by self-esteem, self-worth and confidence issues. Then Last Summer we happened upon the Singers Marin "Musical You" Musical Summer Camp in Mill Valley spear-headed by Jan Schiff and Amanda Morano. Amazingly, In two weeks these girls were singing Broadway tunes in groups and proudly alone on stage. It was simply magical! Then during this past schoolyear, both girls had the confidence to enter their school's talent show. Proudly they both sang...with no accompaniment...and in acapella..."Put A Little Love in Your Heart" to an audience of over 200 people. I don't think their was a single dry eye in the school that night after their performance. I attribute this success to the Singers Marin who introduced them to singing songs in a magical way which has now become part of their souls. And now, they sooo enjoy proudly sharing their songs with others. The gift that Singers Marin gave these girls is not easy to find or come by...and no amount of money can buy it. It is a gift that will no doubt will last these children a lifetime.
