What Others Have Said...

  • "The concert truly was one of the most special events we have had here…. The kids, faculty and administration couldn’t stop talking about it the next day…this event exceeded our expectations and has aided in the building of fellowship in our entire school."

    Tony B.
    (De La Salle High School - New Orleans, LA)
  • "I've also listened to your [CD] (3 times!!). It's gorgeous, as usual. I love your arrangements of the traditional carols. They're so refreshingly original. Love what you did with them. And your voice is just beautiful. I liked In His Presence very much. But, your Memorare is my favorite. Your singing "Ave Maria" over the choir towards the end is wonderful."

    -Fr. Jim M.
    (Chicago, IL)
  • "Thanks again for coming to Mater Dolorosa! Like I mentioned in the time of sharing, my relationship with Mary has changed dramatically from just being there for the day. I truly appreciate your willingness to share the gifts the Lord has blessed you with."

    -Tanya C.
    (New Orleans, LA)
  • I have listened to the CD literally non-stop since (your concert) and it has ministered to me greatly and brought me into special times of communion and worship and praise of Him…I have listened to Christian worship and contemporary Christian music since 1979…and never have I been ministered to so greatly to get deeper into the presence of God as I have through your music."

    Patricia S.
    (Avondale, LA)
  • "I just got home from Lorraine's concert. She is unbelievable and inspiring. Her faith is so strong, so pure. She makes me feel proud to be Catholic."

    -Kylan A.
    (Metairie, LA)
  • "I would like to take a moment to extend my personal thankfulness to you and to all those who accompanied you for a magnificent and spirit-filled concert at St. Peter Catholic Church. Your vocal performance was truly a magnificent interplay of God-given talents and well developed musical skill. It certainly touched the hearts and minds of so many of our parishioners…your beautiful voice, magnificent musical compositions, and your willingness to share your gifts to others, show that you truly have a heart that is on fire for God."

    Rev. Robert C.
    (St. Peter's Catholic Church - Covington, LA)
