Quotes from performers:

Michael Moses: “Having an audience that really appreciates the songs is a good thing,” Moses said. “If we make one person smile more today than yesterday, it has made my day because we touched someone”.

Late drummer & vocalist Nat Epstein (formerly with the Spike Jones Orchestra) continued to perform for Inspirit while in his 80’s said, “I experience things through playing for Inspirit that I never even saw performing in New York City. To entertain people in need is equal parts music and therapy – for both myself and the audience.”

“Inspirit booked my first gig for them at the Palm Beach County Work Release Center,” says Rod MacDonald, a preeminent Greenwich Village singer/songwriter in New York during the ’80s and ’90s before moving to Delray Beach to help care for his parents. “They did the paperwork, provided sound equipment, got me past the guards, and invited the inmates,” he says of the minimum-security facility, “all so I could sing for these guys who were probably glad to have anything to break up the boredom of prison life. They’re a good audience. They listen and get involved. Real music fans.”

Delray Beach singer/songwriter Marie Nofsinger. The setting was Harmony House, a shelter for abused women and children in West Palm Beach. “I really felt the old heart strings at work on that sunny Mother’s Day. It wasn’t so much thinking about what those women and children had been through while I performed, but more about the expressions on their faces, the smiles, the laughter, and the momentary distant looks that I was drawn to. It was a joy to see them dance and laugh, and to watch their children watching their moms have fun.” “I have performed in many settings for all kinds of audiences,” Nofsinger concludes, “but being invited to share music at this safe place for women and children gave me a tremendous spiritual boost and renewed hope for our planet.”
