Thank-you very much...

This experience has helped me to become more confident on stage and in performing in front of others.

By working with music and industry professionals, this has given me the tips and skills needed to become a better performer.

I would recommend this program to kids that like to sing and want to perform and learn new skills.

Wow what a fantastic evening! You should be very pleased. The whole experience, right from the video auditions through to the show last night, was very organized and so much fun for the performers.
Madelyn learned a lot from the workshops. Just a great opportunity for all of these young people. It was great to have them up there singing with a band.
Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into making this a success.

I absolutely loved participating...

It helped me get over my fear of performing in front of a large number of people, and I'm not so shy anymore! 

I'm also happy that I got to meet new people and make new friends! ;)

Rob, I wanted to thank you for everything you do for young artists and singers.

I thought the whole process for Durham's Best was great... I think it's great experience for them.

We really enjoyed ourselves and we realize how much work you put into the whole process and we appreciate everything you do!
