I sang for the Pope in 1993 at the World Youth Day event in Denver when I was a member of the Colorado Symphony Chorus. At one point I was only 20 feet from John Paul.

Definitely the closest proximity I've ever had to a world leader.

And no doubt the closest you have ever come to standing in the presence of a future saint. Thank you for sharing your story.
