Audience member Stephanie Vitug was very moved by the performance, “It’s beautiful, inspiring, and it really touched my soul.”
“I could feel it resonate in my heart and in my soul and it just gave me a sense of awe and wonder. It was very peaceful. To see the message of compassion and what they are wanting to send out into the world of peace and beauty and love, and the connection of you know … um. Dance and music touch all cultures so I think the message that it is sending out is one of beauty and love and compassion and peace for all of us,” she added.
