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 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.
