Singer/Songwriter Theresa Sareo keynote speaker at National Press Conference with Senators Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer at Bellevue Hospital in NYC, Monday, February 5, 2007
I was extremely proud to be part of this very important International Press Conference with NY Senators Clinton and Schumer, advocating against Bush's proposal to cut nearly 80 billion dollars in Medicaid/Medicare and funding to public hospitals. Click here to read my speech, representing Bellevue, the largest public hospital in NYC, where I was saved and rehabilitated, and other issues. It was a dream-come-true to be able to speak from my heart on issues that have meant a great deal to me. Do let me know what you think--no matter where you 'stand' : )
My "ALIVE AGAIN" CD got an AWESOME review by writer and music critic Mark Fogarty from Boomerbox.com. Thank you so much Mark! Please take a look:
Give Mark a shout and let him know what you think--and me too!
"Your CD, Alive Again,...it's beautiful....incredible"

On May 9th, 2007, I was asked to be a guest speaker at the 6th Annual Trauma Symposium at Jacoby Hospital in the Bronx. The Symposium addressed medical and trauma issues for over 600 doctors, nurses and EMTs in the Tri-State area. I met some amazing leading trauma specialists from around the country, who along with myself, brought added awareness to trauma recovery, long-term hospital care and living life with a disability. I also performed songs from "Alive Again." http://jacobitrauma.com/
"As a brave trauma survivor and grateful former patient of an HHC hospital, Theresa Sareo has graciously served as a powerful and compelling spokeswoman for Jacobi Medical Centerís Trauma Service. She has a lovely voice, a repertoire of original pieces that is beautiful and profound in its message, and also is an absolute delight." Barbara Delorio, Dir. Marketing & Public Relations at
Jacobi Medical Cente
I was very honored to be the closing speaker at the third annual conference for the Delaware State Council of Emergency Nurses' Association on Friday, November 4th in Newark, Delaware. It meant a lot to meet these amazing trauma nurses and especially, to share my music with them -- keep up the great work you special folk in Delaware! And continued good luck with your awesome, state-of-the-art Christiana Care Trauma Facility in Dover. www.ena.org

The moving single from Theresa Sareo is making it's way across America as the heart-filled anthem honoring wounded soldiers and their families who make the ultimate sacrifices for our country.
"And they will not be forgotten, and must never be denied
For we shall hold them up with our respect and our pride
So they can be proud and courageous, for everyone must know
The meaning of their sacrifice--lies behind a Soldier's Eyes"
Watch the beautiful video of "Through A Soldier's Eyes"
that was made by Shamrock Communications on YouTube:
"We listen to your CD so much we are afraid it will break. I love your song, I cry every time I here it."

serve this wonderful country of ours."

Theresa Sareo sings "It's Time For A Change" in
I had the honor of performing my original song "It's Time For A Change" for five of this country's most powerful women: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu and former congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro at the Sons of Italy Foundation's (SIF) Nela Gala on Thursday, May 24, 2007 at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, D.C. Myself and singers JoAnn Robertozzi and Lorraine Ferro from the OSIA Centennial Lodge in Manhattan were flown to Washington for the annual black-tie Gala, hosted by actor Joe Mantegna, which awards scholarships to Italian/American college students as well as honoring popular Italian/Americans from the corporate, political and entertainment arenas. Then Senator Clinton was asked to introduce Geraldine Ferraro, who was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award. As many of you know, I first met Mrs. Clinton at a national press conference at Bellevue Hospital in NYC on February 5, 2007, where we were keynote speakers rallying in support of funding to public hospitals. After that encounter, I was motivated to write an inspirational song for change. It was amazing to be in the company of and perform for these leading American women!
"It's Time For A Change" speaks from my heart about the possibilities that lie ahead for our country. Listen to it and read the lyrics at my Myspace link.
"We can make the difference, you and me, 'cause
IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE!"
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Theresa Sareo and
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi
Theresa sings at Shea Stadium!
It was a real blast to sing for the Mets at Shea for Italian Day with the OSIA Centennial Lodge on sunny Sunday, June 24. I opened the pre-game show at home plate with the Napolitano classic "Ole Sole Mio." What a thrill to have performed at the same stadium
where the Beatles' made their infamous American debut!
And a loving shout-out to my fellow crime victim survivors who ran down from their seats to say "Hello!"
Law and Order debut on NBC
I will also be part of an upcoming documentary by actress Jill Kuirsky; a NYC actress living with Lupus. It will also feature other local artists with challenges who are thriving in NY. Keep an eye out for it at: www.aimhighproductions.com
I also performed at Hunter College campus' beautiful Mother of Italy Statue located on E. 68th St. between 3rd and Lexington. The statue was donated to Hunter college in honor of all Italian immigrants who came to America and is one of NYC's hidden gems. I was honored to be part of this event sponsored by the Italian Historical Society. Be sure to visit the statue and it's beautiful courtyard on E. 68th St.
