At a recent benefit performance…I was approached by a young girl and her father. She was recovering from a vicious attack that had placed her in a wheelchair – hopefully, with the Lord’s blessing, not for life. The assault left her partially paralyzed and it was all for her iPhone. A long story short, I felt compelled to give her the flute I had rush ordered, the instrument she called, “An angel’s voice…”. Alicia cried when I gave it to her and it was only with my insistence that she finally accepted it. Afterwards, we played together on the stage to an empty auditorium; Bach’s Sonata No. 1 in B minor – I wept because she played so beautifully! We wept and I was humbled. She continues her education and journey at Juilliard this coming fall.
