A one-of-a-kind, out of this world event….Gene’s legacy couldn’t be in better hands.”

Ignacio Darnaude, , Sony Pictures

“What a wonderful time we had last night….How great it was for you to come to know Gene as only a wife can know a man….and how very special of you to be willing to share this with all of us. Your remarks were charming, informative, humorous and heart warming all at the same time.”

Walter Painter, Emmy-Award Winning Director & Choreographer

“It was a great experience watching the show you presented.  It was informative, concise and thorough, and you conveyed the genius of Gene Kelly wonderfully.  It moved like a story, and with you at the center of it, guiding us through, we all got an idea of who Gene Kelly really was.”

Craig Spivek, Writing and Creativity Consultation at BDPictureFILMS

“Last night’s celebration was a remarkable and loving tribute, so personal yet so universal. Gene’s professional contributions and innovations to the worlds of film, music and dance will certainly have an everlasting place in history, and will inspire and influence emerging artists for years to come. But his philosophies, his approach to life, his unbound knowledge of things well beyond the confines of show business…these things that you now share with the world…the ‘real Gene’…will keep him close to our hearts. Thank you so much for doing what you do, for keeping Gene vital and relevant and present. You’ve opened heaven’s portals here on Earth for us poor mortals.”

Marilee Bradford, Producing Director at The Film Music Society
