I was fortunate to attend the Power Up Gospel Choir Workshop in 2021. The on-line experience was phenomenal. The workshops were enlightening, informative and it was great to experience community within a larger body of singers. A highlight for me was the panel discussion with the guest speakers. Experiencing their openness, vulnerability and wisdom reminded me of the wealth we have access to.
Much looking forward to PowerUP 2022.
I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you again for the invitation to present at PowerUp 2021. It was truly an honor to present! I also wanted to share with you how beautifully organized the event was!! As a Clinician, I felt taken care of, and was always welcomed into each space with love, kindness, and warmth. This is a true reflection of the heart and excellence that TMC continuously demonstrates. Presenting online in the virtual realm, we can often feel disconnected, but somehow you all made it feel as if we were in a room together, holding each other up as a family. That was truly heartwarming for me
Thanks again for spearheading this AMAZINGLY ANOINTED EVENT!!!
