what they say



"Chris Hendrick and I shared a stage in Hollywood. When he got on stage to sing, I was in the green room with Mary Wilson from the Supremes and Roslyn Kind both professional singers, the minute he started to sing all three of us got up out of our seats to see where this magnificence voice was coming from, you guess it Chris Hendricks. A talent that is a must see and hear."

"You don't have to be in the throes of adolescence to be inspired by Chris Hendricks. Whether he's singing one of his heart-rending songs or telling stories about the hardships kids face, his performances poke your soul. And if you also happen to be the parent of a kid who was bullied, shunned, or hurt by unfeeling peers, you want to wrap Chris up, bring him home, and have your child look into those twinkling eyes for assurance that he/she too is Perfect.
Don't miss Chris Hendricks."

"Chris Hendricks has been to Cleveland County Schools on several occasions to deliver motivational speeches for teachers, hold anti-bullying rallies and conduct songwriting workshops for students with emotional and/or intellectual disabilities. At each and every event, Chris exceeded my expectations and delivered a high quality experience. Chris is able to make a powerful and personal connection with his audience, thus leaving a lasting impression on their lives. Each time Chris visits our school system, I am overwhelmed with the intensity of the positive comments I receive from everyone with whom he interacts. I believe that the investment I have made in using Chris Hendricks to teach our staff about empathy, to educate our students about the harms of bullying and to help some of our most challenging students to experience hope through songwriting, has been some of the best money I have ever spent."

“As I looked around the room during Chris’s performance I could see the impact of the music and of his story. Students sat and at times stood fixed because in many ways they could see themselves and share in the story of persistence and resilience. Pitt’s Resident Student Association sought to create a night of inspiration and affirmation, Mr. Hendricks performance more than affirmed this intended goal.”
