This isn't just "the newspaper". This is The Daily News! That's HUGE, Ridmila! So congrats to YOU!! She didn't come to hear me sing that's for sure.... (If she did she would've run away or cried -- for different reasons than why she cried for you guys.....)

Good cheer and congrats to you and the children for exhibiting such talent and grace in an exciting moment in time!

I'm so happy for you that your efforts have made it to the Daily News - now for a television (maybe Good Morning America or David Letterman?) exposure.

Keep up the marvelous work!

Just a reader ...

You know, I've been a big fan of Tori's since 1993. She's been my favorite musician since I first discovered her, and for a while there I bordered on obsessed. In recent years, though, my enthusiasm has kind of cooled. I still counted her as my favorite, but I didn't listen to her music nearly as often as I used to, I didn't voraciously read all the news about her, etc. etc. When I first bought American Doll Posse, I wasn't crazy about it. I bought it at the midnight release the day it came out, but I only listened to it all the way through once and then sat it aside.

When I saw you kids taking Tori's music and making it your own, and when I saw how you moved her and how she moved you - when I saw this diverse and talented and amazing group of kids feeling the excitement and passion for Tori's music that I once felt - it sparked in me again. I listen to ADP now and can't turn it off.

Thanks, PS22 Chorus, for reminding me of something I had almost forgotten!
