Dear Ms. Bracewell:

On behalf of the youth, staff, and board members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County, we would like to extend a heart-felt thank you for the wonderful music workshop you presented to our youth on May 19, 2005. Your gift of music is something that will reside within their hearts and their spirits throughout their lives.

You have a natural ability to relate to youth. Even though our Club members come from a wide array of cultural backgrounds, you were able to make a connection with each and every one of them. You immediately grabbed their attention with your easy smile, quirky sense of humor, and child-like openness. You kept their attention as you performed renditions of everything from Bob Dylan to Sheryl Crow to your own original songs.

Id didn't matter that they didn't know any of the songs. Your vibrant stage presence, outgoing personality, and remarkable musical talents held their attention for the entire 75 minute workshop. As anyone who works with youth knows, that is not an easy task. In addition, you opened them up to a musical genre that the majority of them might never have taken the opportunity to experience or to appreciate. That, in itself, is a wonderful gift.

Thank you for sharing your many talents with us and touching the lives of our youth. We wish you success in all your endeavors and we look forward to the day when our paths might cross again.
