I’m in Austin Texas and just heard two performances by the Grammy Winning Choir Conspirare. My friend Matt Alber was guest soloist with the choir. It was a magical experience in so many ways. The conductor Craig Hella Johnson is a beautiful human being who is making change through his music and the message of love. The choir members are all professional singers and come from all over the United States. The glances of affection and joy they had for each other and their leader throughout the performance were astonishing. I have never seen that before. Matt’s voice came through like an angel…he truely has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. That sentiment was definately shared by the response of the audience. More than his voice, Matt shares a mission to make the world a better place and he radiated that feeling throughout the performance. I am so blessed to meet and have colleagues and friends engaged in making postitive change in this world. Thank you Matt for inviting my to come to Texas to hear you sing and for the friendship and values we share together. It makes life really rich and meaningful.
