Brian Stokes Mitchell.
Chuck Wagner, talked me into going to his workshop while we were at the annual conference. To say he was inspiring would be an understatement. Brian spoke through performance, teaching the teachers how to teach. He made me feel proud of what I do all day, proud of the arts, and most of all (as subtle as his comments were) proud of my spirituality.
And when he was done I was inspired. Because Chuck has an impressive Broadway resume of his own & they know each other, I was blessed one more time before the workshop ended when Chuck introduced me to Brian!
One final note: Does anyone else think he should go on SNL & do an Obama impersonation?
