    I have loved Lindsey's style and spark, not to mention talent, from the first moment I saw her on a video years ago. She is so positive and upbeat. I was worried she might be dealing with anorexia, and now I am so glad to hear she is facing it head on. I would just cry if something happened to her. I look forward to every video she is in. Thank you for being an inspiration. This is the first time I heard that she is Mormon, but maybe I should have guessed since she performs with other well known Mormons like Alex Boye', Shaun Canon, the Piano Guys and others who are making a difference in the world.

    Lindsey's personal story and her music inspire people of all ages; and that is what makes this young woman so incredibly loved, by so many!

    Okay... and her insane dance moves! Who does that, while at the same time playing the violin with such mad skills?

    If a teenage boy was watching one of Lindsey's YouTube videos and the boy's mom walked past and saw it, he wouldn't have to hide it from her. In fact, the two can enjoy it together.

    That's one thing that makes Lindsey's videos and music so wonderful.

    Sweetie...from the first time I saw you perform with Alex Boye I was "twitterpated" with your energized style of music!! You are a GREAT musician and from what I can see a WONDERFUL person! Thank you for sharing yourself through your music...you are appreciated for who you are, what you have overcome, and influence you extend to others.
