This Is the Best Present for My Life, Diplomat Says

“I think [Shen Yun] has raised the standard higher and higher. I felt like sitting here forever. It sounded like we were angels in heaven.” 
 

“You saw the conductor even conducting the audience, connecting all of us. … [Shen Yun’s music] touched the hearts, the minds, and the souls of people who are here. It has healing and soothing [effects]. I think many people who are having spiritual thirst and hunger are going home now with spiritual empowerment.” 
 

“I was feeling the energy. … This [performance] is the best present for my life. … This is my birthday present too. … I think I am re-created.”
