Nick Barilla was the consummate professional. He arrived early, talked with students and staff, and gave an incredible performance. We were touched by his warmth, energy, but most of all by the fact that he stayed to hear other performers. Our monthly coffee house features an open mic portion, and he listened to each young performer and then applauded them publically when it was his turn to sing. It meant the world to our university and community! We will definitely have him back! - Kate Aguilar - Indiana University at Kokomo
