Ermal, your portrayal of John Wayne was magnificent. ". . . You and Paula totally captivated and facinated everyone in the room with your depiction of the Duke and Paula's performance. I heard a lot of very complimentary comments throughout the day on you, Paula, and the show. Thanks again for kicking our event off to a great start. You and Paula definitely helped make our 2011 Fall Conference a big success. I hope to have another opportunity to see you and Paula perform again."

"Thanks again for making the trek to south central Iowa for our conference, your presence certainly provided substance to our "True Grit" conference theme!
I truly found myself living the stories you were telling, and envisioning similar persons in my past that had helped our Iowa native grow into his adulthood and eventual acting career. A most memorable evening for many of us!"

We still talk about "John Wayne Day" at Providence Baptist and how Paula sang during the service, and the free concert at the restaurant after church. Paula, your impersonation of Katherine Hepburn was "dead on". I'm already busy publicizing your movie here at work tonight.
