The Keynote Speaker will be Judy Torres (pictured above), professional singer, whose first hit record, “No Reason to Cry,” brought her a taste of fame, fortune, and sold-out performances at world-class venues, but few knew of the struggles with bullying, failed relationships, illness, and depression that also followed her throughout her life. Listen to her story with an open heart- as Judy invites you to remember that no matter how tough life gets, there’s no reason to cry!
