“I think the melody of “The British Isles” fits very well Brides on wedding day, the day when women get married they are very emotional and it feels like they are under the troubled sky. I am sure many of them will listen with eyes full of tears and the stunning bride with the pretty white dress under the blue sky will feel so touched by listening to Bernie spreading his melancholic voice all over the place with this melody. Good memories will remain forever.”

"She moves" is a very lovely song for little babies, they would easily sleep with your silky voice, they would dream of other sorts of love like mother love and food :D. Also people in the area of love would appreciate this melody, true love or in or out of love, this song is admirable. Love all of your songs and your bright heart my musical Friend Bernie .Will comment later on your other songs. Love from me

“Thanks you for all you're doing to address and end this horrible cycle Belinda. It seems that abuse, hatred and violence are spreading faster with every day....domestic, child abuse, bullying, war etc. I just know that you and people like you can make a difference...we all have to stick together. I listened to "Raising Awareness"..it's both hopeful and chilling and I hope it spreads world wide and gets the attention it deserves. A copy of this should be sent to every political head and every agency, everyplace. Wonderfully said and done. You are loved!”
