On Wednesday, January 8th, 2014 I participated in a very special “Flash Mob” with some great people in the community. We recognized the lives of the victims, survivors & those affected by the “Tucson Tragedy” that took place on that day 3 years ago, by dancing to “Overcomer” by Mandisa. I’m honored to be a part of creating such a special piece. Thank you Uzo & those who participated with us. We couldn’t have done it without you!  🙂

Press Coverage:






Singer of “Overcomer” song Mandisa says in response…

“Meeting Gabby and several of the other people who were affected that day in 2011 was so inspirational to me. Your flashmob, with all of it’s ages, races, etc. is the perfect way to honor them! God bless you!”
