Allison Strong
 recently performed at the Council on Foundations Leading Together Conference in Dallas, Texas, where she sang a new song by Mary-Mitchell Campbell alongside fellow Broadway talents Crystal Hall, Tyley Ross and Justin Gregory López.  The song, titled “Reasons for Hope,” is an anthem promoting peace and an open dialogue between both sides during this challenging political climate.  One can see her performance of the song (where she is wearing the yellow dress) by looking at the video below (the song starts at 33:44).
