What People Say

BTS logoFamilies we have served write to us about their experience:

“Beautiful! I was uplifted all day!”

“You sang to my husband while he was in hospice. I know he was able to hear your music. It was a comfort to him and the family who was there. Thank you.”

“We just wanted to thank you for the beautiful and calming songs you sang to our mom. She passed away shortly after you stopped by and we feel that the peace that filled her home afterwards just helped her cross over better. Thank you again for your beautiful voices!”

“I never would have guessed that a few songs could help so much. After you left, Mom started playing music in the house every day. Thank you so much.”

“Your voices were those of the angels my father had by his side as he left this life and went to the next. You helped him experience complete peace in his last moments.”

“On Monday my dear husband will be laid to rest. I am so thankful to all of you who came to sing. I remember the last time you were here he sang along with you. God bless each of you.”

“Your gift of song touches the soul, bringing hope and joy.”
