Our Story

Dear friends,

Be Delighted began from a question: how can people utilize creativity in their everyday experience to feel joy? Having performed for thousands of audiences over the span of a long career, I have witnessed how singing to and with people plays a crucial role in well-being. Through the years, people shared with me heart-wrenching stories of loss and/or trauma. No matter what avenue the losses stemmed, or the level of grief felt, I observed how the craft of singing positively influenced the mind, body, and spirit, and thus began the call-t0-respond…Sing4Wellness!

There is an 'artist' in each one of us, crafting, molding, shaping, and using our talents to create a life that sings! In the pursuit of this excellence, I believe the societal ills that plague a society will dissolve. Just think for a moment of the lyrics that made you cry, a photograph implanted in your memory of the ‘good times,’ a dance that brought you closer to a significant other, a sandcastle children made with their parents, or a letter to a loved one. Whatever act of creativity, it brought a unity, a memory, value and dignity of an individual, that somehow inspired forgiveness, empathy, compassion, and love. Our imperfections require that we have the arts because they bring us into the realization and progress of humanity.

 

We are excited about our programming and hope you will join us on the journey! Let your heart be moved by the art around you! Let’s preserve the wellness of our society. Let’s Be Delighted!​

Sincerely,

Our Mission

Create a world where people can live joyfully, empowered by the arts.
