SAY on The Meredith Vieira Show!

Twenty-one kids & teens from SAY's program were thrilled to appear on the Meredith Vieira show to sing Josh Groban's song - Don't Give Up (You are Loved). WOW!

In addition to the incredible thrill of meeting Meredith Vieira, following the performance, Josh Groban surprised everyone on-set. It was an incredibly moving and heartfelt moment.

Meredith Vieira also spoke with Taro Alexander (SAY’s Founder & President), Julianna Padilla (a SAY program participant for 9 years), Julianna’s mother (Millie Padilla) and Everett Bradley (the Meredith Vieira show’s Musical Director, Bruce Springsteen E-Street band member & SAY’s amazing Musical Director since 2001).

Tragically, millions of children who stutter are suffering in silence, and I'm honored to lend my voice to help SAY continue to empower children to find their own voices.

To see these kids get in front of an audience and speak, which is difficult for anyone, is incredibly moving. What they do just speaks to the power of joining a group and gaining confidence.

In a world where kids who stutter are often mocked, rejected, harassed, and misunderstood…I hope that every child who stutters has an opportunity to benefit from SAY’s programs.
