"My goal is for people leave the show feeling better than they did when they first came in," affirms Spinella. "The show is light-hearted and uplifting, although it does have a few dramatic moments. But the music is so beautiful. The songs are some of the most frequently requested songs whenever I perform concerts. And I'll be introducing 'Trust in Me,' my newest single, live for audiences. Adding the magic to all that great music just makes the entire show unforgettable."
