“I barely took any notes because he was so incredibly engaging .. to transmute his journey into art so beautifully! Rene’s voice is needed on this topic to inspire more compassionate communication. He took the noise others asked him to “stop & turn off” and turned it into a beautiful offering for the world. Keep rocking it!”

“Physically and emotionally moving. He turns his own voice into his instrument, beyond just the singing. Rene doesn’t need a backtrack – he IS the back track! Great laughter and crowd interaction. His slides were part of the performance and made us laugh … that’s not easy to do with slides!”
