I would like to take this opportunity to write a letter of recommendation for Marie Gogo, a singer/entertainer whom we have invited regularly for the past ten years.
Marie’s personality and musical talents as well as the bonding she creates with our residents each time she performs makes her one of the most awaited artists that come to (our home).
(Our) residence is a home to 174 residents with various spiritual and cultural backgrounds. Large groups of our resident are not able to communicate in English due to the language barrier. During a Marie Gogo Show there are no barriers. Residents respond well to Marie’s acting and music, they hum along, smile, some of them even dance. Marie makes sure there is always a song or two from various times and countries close to the hearts of our residents. Marie sings these songs in the original languages like Russian or Yiddish. She interacts with the audience, moves around the guests and makes them happy.
At the end of the show there is always a line-up to have a picture taken with Marie and her accompanying musician.
Each of Marie Gogo’s concerts has an interesting theme (winter, Valentines, St. Patrick’s and more.) Everyone can find something enjoyable and interesting in her show. During Marie’s programs residents remain alert, actively participate in the event, many ask her when she will come again.
We wish Marie the best in the future and hope she will continue dedicating her talents to entertaining our seniors.
