"Louis Apollon is a magical performer. Just about every songwriter you hear clearly has passion for the songs they sing, but what about a passion for music? Do they take joy in just being able to sing? Do you feel that joy? To hear Lou perform, is to watch Lou perform, which is to become one with his beautiful songs, but also with his love of song itself. Experiencing Lou’s music is both profound and humbling as you get to share in Lou’s journey and appreciate the great beauty of a soul shining bright with purpose, love, and gratitude."
