It’s you—the soprano who relies on the other singers to help her know just the right note, then sings it with gusto.

It’s you.

Without singers—like, a whole bunch of them—we’d have no choir.

Don’t think of the “good” singers or the “good” musicians or anyone else as the backbone of the choir.

You are.

Thanks for being a good vertebra. We need you.

-Bro. Ryan
