I am a social work intern at SOS and have come to believe in the mission of this great organization. SOS helps an under-served population in some of their greatest times of need and is so valuable. I only wish more people knew about SOS and that more successful musicians supported it.

I am Brenda Lee Eager, singer/songwriter/actress/ vocal coach. I am happy to write and tell you how SOS and Wendy have helped me in the past years. It has not been an easy road being in the music business these past 43 years and there were times that I needed help and had no place to go. I was led to S.O.S and they saved my butt! Twice! I pray that in the near future that I will be able to start contributing back to the fund because it is where I want to give back and help someone else who is pursuing their dreams.Peace and blessings to all , we truly are ONE!

I am a singer. I am a member of Society of Singers and a volunteer whenever they need me. Since I was a little girl I dreamed of being a singer. I support SOS in order to protect the dream of every singer. When a singer falls on hard times Society of Singers is their safety net. It is our obligation as singers to become donor members. May I never need their help. For those who do need their help -- especially in these recent difficult years -- we must support the mission of Society of Singers.
