We are a family of eight individuals. We travel to other countries to bring inspiration, love and hope to those in desperate need by means of a creative expression of music, dance, art and theater.
“So many times in life we are faced with a decision and, to go along with the status quo, we often find ourselves saying; “…unfortunately, I can’t…”. There are so many excuses. But what is truly unfortunate is that WE CAN but often choose not to. Time goes by, the couch is comfortable, the routine is easy. Helping others can be such a hassle. But “unfortunately” it is possible to change lives, it is possible to make a huge difference for someone else if we so dare to venture beyond the status quo.”
Hello my friend! My name is Joshua, I am second to the youngest in my family of eight. My parents have introduced me to the high purpose of caring about others more than myself. I have put this website together to showcase the work my family and I are doing. I would like to sincerely thank you for taking a few moments of your time to look over our site and consider the work that we are doing. Any official documentation is not posted here for privacy protection reasons but can be provide on a personal basis, just contact us. A detailed account of our work is chronicled under “Our Up-to-date blog“.
We have been to every state and big city in America and over forty five countries around the world. We have received an overwhelming number of requests to perform in the prisons, orphanages, schools, military bases and city centers as well as at special events for government officials and major international foundations like the UN. We have met and performed for mayors, presidents and high ranking officials as well as the general public and mostly for the poor and those in difficult situations.
We have recently been traveling through South America (see “Current timeline”) and just returned to the US in order to recover finances and save up for our return. We do not ask for money for anything we do but instead will stop from time to time to work jobs and save up the finances required. My brothers and sisters and I work as waiters and waitress sometimes two or three jobs at a time to raise money quickly so we can return to those in need.

“Good Morning Dear Family,
My name is Jose. I’m a Systems Engineer from Bogota, Colombia. In September 2009 I lost my mother to cancer. These last years for me have been like I was in darkness, I have felt very sad, lonely and depressed.
On December 24th I got up early as usual, I went for a jog, after I got home, I knelt down and asked God if He would, even for just today, notice me and give me a little happiness…
God answered my request! That day for some reason, I became eager to go to the center of Bogota, a site I frequent rarely. And there you were, on that street corner. You were about to start your angelic presentation. I decided to wait until you begin and what a surprise. Everything you said, all the music you played, everything you showed me entered my heart with great joy. I was there for every moment until you finished your presentation.
You have given me an excellent message of life, you have given me light, and this light will change my life…”
