We sing, we dance, we laugh, we make new friends, and we have fun! Singers Company is more than just hitting notes and following steps; it empowers young girls to perform, gain confidence, and make friends! There is beauty and value in each and EVERY voice and when girls feel confident & empowered they make better decisions, look for the good in others and grow up to be powerful women & moms. These confident girls change the world one person, family & community at a time. It is inspiring to see a young girl, once afraid to leave her mother's side, get up in front of a large crowd and sing a solo with confidence!

"As I watched the girls perform today the tears wouldn't stop running down my cheeks. You are building their self esteem, and they are singing with joy in their hearts. Your program is so much more than singing. I am forever grateful for all that you have done and for all that you continue to do. Thank you again for creating Singers Company and sharing your passion with all of our daughters."
