“When Rosalie began to sing, my life changed permanently. If I had ever questioned the existence of a higher being, that question vanished. Tears poured uncontrollably (but quietly) down my cheeks, as prayers that I didn’t fully understand rose out of her from what felt like her deepest core. Rosalie is the essence of spirituality…When she sings the world vanishes and her music fills every space in my being…She is a rare and exceptional human being. And when I listen to her, whether it’s when she’s talking or singing, I believe anything and everything is possible.”
