Singing in tribute to the lives lost in the recent Boston Marathon bombing, Dallas' performance of the Star Spangled Banner sent chills throughout the crowd at the International Beach Tennis Open - Publishers Printing Company BTUSA Sunshine Open.
Athletes from all over the world felt Americans grief while Dallas sang America's National Anthem.
We look forward to working with you at future events Dallas!

"I've never heard the National Anthem sung so beautifully! I actually got tears in my eyes. I could tell you felt the song."
"You add so much to these military ceremonies. It's heartwarming!"
You have a beautiful voice. You made me cry as I listened to you singing the National Anthem. I am a patriotic person,I have military family members from the Civil War and WWII
Your singing was truly an inspiration to all who were a witness to your music ministry. We will surely recommend you to anyone who would like to share in that ministry. You are welcome at Mayflower Church anytime. Blessings to you!

You did an amazing job singing our National Anthem!
You are truly blessed with an Angel's voice!
Gorgeous vocals and beautiful demo tracks! So glad you are alive and sharing God's gift of music with us. ~Anna
“Thank you for the awsome job you did singing the national anthem opening night for us!”
"From the start of the audition until the end of the performance Dallas was refreshingly energetic and professional in every aspect of carrying out her duties. We will certainly use her again in the future"
“probably the most beautiful National Anthem ever...next to the late great Whitney Houston. Not only did Dallas mezmerize the Crowd with her beautiful voice, she pounded your heart with patriotism and passion!”
I listened to your CD this morning. I got tears when I heard the words, it was like you were speaking directly to me!
Good Morning -- Thank you so much for your musical reply. Your song is beautiful and you have been blessed with a beautiful voice. I have played your song a number of times. I don't believe I have had the pleasure of meeting you. I have been attending the early service...again, thank you for your thoughtfulness. Peggy always here and then we attend a Church of Christ in Falls Church, VA. We will have to make sure we meet each other. Again, thank you for your thoughtfulness. Peggy
You have no idea how much you are missed! And God is using you to still bring such love & encouragement to my life. I am so grateful for you :) Please pray for me. Loveya! Bobbie
Praise God (!!!), He gives Libby the strength to handle these health obstacles as they arise -- Libby is amazing because God made her that way!! Oh my, Dallas, once again, I didn't set out to ramble your ear off like this. I just wanted to thank you for your prayers and support. After your flower, card and hug delivery on that Sunday, Libby was so amazed at your expression of love for her and what she was dealing with. Several (actually MANY) times she said things like "I can't believe she did this for me!" or "Mom, I can't believe someone that I don't even know cared enough about me to do this!" or "This is the sweetest thing someone has ever done for me!" -- I guess you get my point, she really appreciated it!Sometimes this 'in-between-age' (college age) can fall through the cracks, even in the church, and it did my heart very good to see my daughter ministered to in this way.Thank you seems so inadequate....Because of Him, Melody
YOUR SONG, GOD IS GOOD BLESSED MY HEART AND I SHED A FEW TEARS AS YOU ARE REACHING OUT YOUR HANDS AND LETTING PEOPLE KNOW SURELY, THAT GOD IS GOOD ALWAYS TO THOSE WHO HAVE MADE THEIR PEACE WITH HIM AND OTHERS THEY HAVE KNOWN. PRAISE GOD FOR HIS LOVING KINDNESS. I SO ENJOYED THE SONG GOD GAVE TO YOU, THAT I HAVE SHARED IT WITH MY EMAIL BASE, I AM PUTTING A PLUG FOR YOUR CD, I WILL SHARE IT WITH OTHERS. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN IT IS FINISHED, I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR ALL OF YOUR SONGS.
Dallas, All we can say is.... WOW. You have a wonderful talent. We had no idea you could sing so well. Salina and I listened to your songs this morning. My favorite... (they're all great)... is My Last Breath. The quality of the music, words and your signing is outstanding. Congratulations on your project.
David and Salina H.
All of these elements along with everything else that will be added will be delicately mixed and balanced to let each song develop emotionally from start to finish. I think everything sounds fantastic.
I was listening to this pastor/inspirational speaker today. (I've been downloading lots of seminars to my ipod these days.) I came across this guy on a whim 3 days ago. The topic of his message was entitled.. "Life Is Good..." It was a 5 part series and the particular one within the series I was listening to was called "Life Is Good, When You Have Dreams." This man said something that smacked me so hard, he said this;
"All of our dreams, our passions and our creative forces driving us to succeed in whatever it is that is deep within us, were put there by God. He made us this way, with that particular dream and passion. We sometimes get to a point in our lives where something so terrible happens and it seems as if your dream has been crushed like you will never reach it and it has been killed. God, who placed this dream within you before you even knew you had it, is also a resurrecting God. He is in the business of resurrecting. God knows and is showing you, that whatever dream you have such a passion for, HAS TO and WILL DIE! The power God gives you, is the ability to see that with him, you can resurrect those dreams. And when you do, you will know that THIS was the purpose of God put into your life to use in ways you never knew were possible."
Talk about a OMG moment 4 me girl!!
For me to resurrect my dream from the dead with God, I now know I am to use it and channel it in such a way to help those who I know need it so much.
Thank you Dallas for all you have done for me. You have helped me more than you will ever know. Have a wonderful evening!
I just wanted to express to you something that you had said to me that has stuck with me throughout all that I have endured these last several years. Many people were physically, financially, mentally and spiritually there for me in my time of need, but only very few offered me words or even one line of perspective changing thoughts that have stuck with me and will continue to do so.
You are one of the few. You visited me in the hospital several times, as most did, and one of the times you told me something that, at that time, was hard for me to grasp. You told me that through all I was going through, the question of "why" toward God, should not be uttered, for the outcome, whether it be full recovery or not, would be the tool God would use in my life to possibly change others. All things were for a reason and maybe the reason was what I chose to do with the end result.
I never forgot your words, and through all the struggles I endured I kept them within my mind's arms length. I know now, that I was given this gift to help people. I intend to do this and have God guide me the through the plan he has already established for me. I deeply thank you and thank God for sending you to me with the words that will never escape my mind, never sway my goal and I will pass them down as as way to "Pay them Forward." Thank you again! Your inspriation and kindness will never be forgotten.
Just thinking about you & wanted to let you know. I miss your smile, your infectious optimism & your love of life. I know that I was blessed to have you come into my life even for just a short while! And just thinking about you gives me a warm, loving feeling.Funny how certain people can light up a room. And you do even when you're not even in the room :)Hoping things are going well for you guys!MUCH LOVE,Bobbie
You are not alone. We are all thinking of you and praying for you. I wish you the very best with these procedures. It's hard to believe you are going through all of this... You are so healthy and happy. May God rest his hands on you. Love, Melissa
Dallas: Jan and I will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. I have had quadruple bypass surgery so I understand the heart procedures. Nothing to them You will do fine. No worries!! I guess being away, we have been out of the loop. I didn't know you had these medical problems. I know you as being happy and optimistic - that helps you more than you know. You have a lot of friends pulling for you - most of all the Good Lord will see you through!! Dennis and Jan

Dear Dallas, I tired to call you last night but the voice mail on your phone was full. I just wanted to tell you how blessed I'm just to have you as a friend. Everytime you come here, our appointment time is more like a counseling time and I have enjoyed every minute of it. What I called about was just to let you and Craig know how much I praise God for your life and I am glad you are still alive. Seeing you was really good and I wanted to let you know that I will keep praying for your speedy recovery. God Bless you Both and if you need anything just let me know. Love u muches, Jackie
