"Mr. Lincoln" gave the Settlers in Fort Wayne, Indiana a wonderful performance on march 9, 2017. Mr. Lincoln was able to delight and teach from his perspective as a pioneer boy, a frontiersman, a lawyer, family man, and President of the United States. Danny Russell swept our members into the emotional trials and challenges of Abraham Lincoln, and lifted us with Lincoln's faith and humor.
I represent a professional group that meets quarterly to discuss commerce, networking opportunities, and community projects. We booked "Abraham Lincoln" as an entertainer for one of our meetings. The experience was awesome and inspiring.
The performance focused on historical and philosophical perspectives related with Lincoln's childhood and then progressed into his political career. There were a few moments when the actor's representation had audience members not only captivated; but almost in tears as he described the struggles related to slavery and civil war.
This booking gave my professional group a night of entertainment and perspective rarely acquired from a community action venue. The members all left the meeting moved by this performance. It is evident that this actor brings a level of professionalism and dependability needed when entertaining business clientele. If you want to hit a homerun with your colleagues; look no further than this "Abraham Lincoln".
