 Mr. Al Jarreau was so inspired by Marie-France Levesque’s dancing during the pre-show performance that  he composed a song on the spot!

“I was thoroughly impressed by The Los Angeles Dance Company, and by Marie-France’s energetic & emotional dancing.  Her innovative and passionate choreography inspired me to write a new song on the spot!  The LADC is truly worth supporting.” Al Jarreau
