A Story of Hope and “Grace” with Author: Angela Ray Rodgers

Thu. September 26th, 2019 | 11:00am - 12:00pm EDT


The Somerset Community College (SCC) Physical Therapist Assistant Program will be hosting Angela Ray Rodgers and her daughter Grace Anna as they discuss their book Grace Anna Sings, sing songs, answer questions, and meet with the audience.

In 2012, Grace Anna was close to death after both lungs collapsed following a spinal fusion procedure. Once recovered, she began to sing; her rendition of the national anthem received worldwide attention. She’s made appearances on local and national television and has developed a strong social media presence, with more than 1.2 million followers and videos reaching over 25 million people.

Grace Anna’s enthusiasm for life and positivity is contagious, and she continues to impress the world through her amazing accomplishments. The most important of these is allowing her story to be used to help others live more positive lives.

Grace Anna’s journey through life will inspire you to be the best you can be no matter your circumstances. Her resilient spirit has helped her overcome obstacles in life which will move you to choose to live, not just exist.

The faith of her family to believe in the impossible will inspire you to take steps to make your life better. Her fearlessness challenges will challenge you to be bold, be brave, and step out courageously. Grace Anna’s love of life will motivate you to seek joy where there appears to be only darkness.

Autographs and book signing will be held in the lobby after the event. Participants interested in having a book signed, will need to purchase a book during the event.
