TESTIMONIALS

“EDDIE COKER IS ONE OF THE MOST TALENTED AND CREATIVE PEOPLE WE HAVE EVER MET. WHEN WE LEARNED THAT HIS PERFORMANCES WERE GEARED TOWARDS POSITIVE MESSAGES AND DESTIGMATIZING MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, WE KNEW WE HAD TO BRING WEZMORE TO LASA.

TO PROVIDE SOME PERSPECTIVE, LASA IS A HIGHLY COMPETITIVE PROGRAM AND THE ONLY ACCELERATED MAGNET SCHOOL IN AUSTIN, TEXAS. LASA IS, ARGUABLY, ONE OF THE MOST RIGOROUS AND COMPETITIVE PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS IN THE COUNTRY AND IS OFTEN REFERRED TO AS "BOOT CAMP" FOR COLLEGE.

THE ENVIRONMENT IS ACADEMICALLY DEMANDING AND MANY OF THE ISSUES WE FACE AS COUNSELORS ARE AROUND MANAGING STRESS AND ADDRESSING MENTAL HEALTH CONCERNS.

ONE THING WE TRULY APPRECIATED IS THAT EDDIE CAME AND TALKED WITH OUR COUNSELING TEAM TO UNDERSTAND WHAT ISSUES OUR STUDENTS TEND TO STRUGGLE WITH.  HE TOOK THE INFORMATION WE GAVE HIM AND WAS ABLE TO EXPERTLY INCORPORATE THOSE MESSAGES INTO HIS SHOW. THAT KIND OF FLEXIBILITY AND ABILITY TO IMPROVISE A MERE HOUR BEFORE HIS SHOW WAS IMPRESSIVE.

TO BE HONEST, WE WEREN'T SURE AN AUDITORIUM FULL OF NEW 9TH GRADERS WOULD RESPOND TO THE WEZMORE SHOW. THESE KIDS ARE TOUGH, AND NOT EASILY IMPRESSED. EDDIE CAPTIVATED THEM FROM THE FIRST MOMENT AND HAD THEM LAUGHING AND PARTICIPATING FOR AN ENTIRE HOUR. HE HAD THEM ENGAGED AND LISTENING TO MESSAGES THAT IT'S OKAY TO ASK FOR HELP, AND THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE JUST HAVING FUN! HE IS PURE GENIUS.

EDDIE CREATED SUCH A BUZZ FROM HIS PERFORMANCE THAT WE OVERHEARD KIDS TALKING ABOUT IT FOR DAYS! HE EVEN WENT VIRAL THAT NIGHT ON SOCIAL MEDIA.  

IF YOU'RE READY TO TALK ABOUT IMPORTANT ISSUES WITH KIDS AND ARE LOOKING FOR AN IDEAL WAY TO DELIVER THIS MESSAGE, EDDIE COKER IS YOUR GUY. GO WEZMORE!!!"

SHANNON BERGERON, LEAD COUNSELOR - MARISSA RIVERA, WELLNESS COUNSELOR LIBERAL ARTS & SCIENCE ACADEMY - AUSTIN, TEXAS

 

"I THINK THE WHOLE WORLD SHOULD BE LIKE ONE BIG EDDIE COKER CONCERT!” 

 SARA HICKMAN – SINGER/SONGWRITER

 

“HE’S ROBIN WILLIAMS DOING A JIMMY BUFFETT CONCERT. EVERYBODY SINGS, EVERYBODY LAUGHS!!!” 

 SYDNEY CONNEL LONG

“SORRY TO FILL YOUR INBOX WITH AN UNSOLICITED E-MAIL, BUT I HAVE TO SHARE WITH YOU AN EXPERIENCE I HAD THIS MORNING. I WAS IN A KINDERGARTEN ROOM WORKING WITH A STUDENT WHEN I HEARD A GIRL AT A WORKSTATION SINGING "LOVE AT EVERY STEP."  IT WARMED MY HEART TO KNOW THAT A MONTH LATER, THE KIDS ARE STILL CARRYING THE WEZMORE MESSAGE! THANKS FOR A GREAT PROGRAM AND THE IMPACT IT CONTINUES TO HAVE ON STUDENTS AND STAFF!!!”

 BRYAN BIRD, PRINCIPAL – BETHANY ELEMENTARY - PLANO, TEXAS

“KIDS BEING KIDS WHILE LEARNING ABOUT KINDNESS, LOVE, AND HEALTH.  IT IS TRULY AN EXPERIENCE THEY WILL NEVER FORGET AND A PERFECT WAY FOR OUR SCHOOL TO KICK OFF KINDNESS WEEK."

TARA WALROD, ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELOR - OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS

"EDDIE COKER WAS A GOOFY, SILLY, FUNNY, WEIRD (IN A GOOD WAY), AWESOME MAN."

 TOVA, STUDENT

 

“UPLIFTING, INSPIRING, ENGAGING, AND INTERACTIVE. WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR?!? MR. COKER'S MESSAGE WAS PRESENTED IN A VERY UNIQUE WAY WHICH REACHED OUT AND GRABBED THE ATTENTION OF ALL AUDIENCE MEMBERS."

 MARY GARRETSON, 2ND GRADE TEACHER - KINDNESS KANSAS CITIAN ASSEMBLY

“AS A PSYCHOTHERAPIST WHO HAS WORKED WITH MANY AT-RISK YOUTH, AND ALSO WORK WITH ADULTS WHO WERE ONCE AT-RISK YOUTH, I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT EDDIE COKER AND HIS WORK OF THE LAST 25 YEARS HELPING TO BUILD A CHILD’S CORE SENSE OF WORTH AND VALUE.  THE VAST MAJORITY OF KIDS DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO A PRIVATE THERAPIST OR INDIVIDUAL TUTORS, AND FAR TOO MANY DON’T HAVE THE MENTORS TO HELP THEM NAVIGATE TODAY’S WORLD. BY CREATING WEZMORE, EDDIE CAN HELP REACH SO MANY KIDS WHO NEED IT. AND, WHAT KID COULDN’T BENEFIT FROM A LITTLE ENCOURAGEMENT, GUIDANCE, AND SUPPORT TO CREATE A SENSE OF PEACE AND RESPECT AND LOVE FOR THEMSELVES AND OTHERS, WHILE HAVING LOTS OF FUN DOING IT? SOMETIMES ALL IT TAKES IS A LITTLE NUDGE OR A GOOFY SONG TO MAKE A LASTING IMPACT.”  

CAROL NORRIS

 

"MY NAME IS JEREMY BRINKER AND I AM A SENIOR AT THE LIBERAL ARTS & SCIENCE ACADEMY HIGH SCHOOL IN AUSTIN, TEXAS. I AM INVOLVED IN THE LASA AMBASSADORS PROGRAM, AND THROUGH THIS, I HAD THE UNIQUE PLEASURE OF SEEING EDDIE COKER'S SHOW: WEZMORE. I CAME INTO THIS SHOW HAVING NO IDEA WHAT TO EXPECT AND I WAS A LITTLE AMAZED AT THE RESULTS. THE SHOW WAS FAST-PACED, JOLLY, AND DEEP ALL AT THE SAME TIME. I COULDN'T STOP MYSELF FROM LAUGHING, BUT SIMULTANEOUSLY IT STRUCK A CHORD INSIDE. I LEFT HIS SHOW THE FIRST DAY UPLIFTED AND SMILED FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. THE METHODS OF AUDIENCE INTERACTION HE USED - - SUCH AS PULLING KIDS UP ON STAGE FOR AN 'AEROBICS CLASS' - - MADE IT A MUCH MORE ENGAGING SHOW AND OPENED UP A CROWD OF SHY 9TH GRADERS."

JEREMY BRINKER

 

"IT'S COOL BECAUSE IT WAS FUNNY!"

 FERNANDO, STUDENT

 

 “DEAR EDDIE. TODAY WAS AMAZING. I WILL NEVER FORGET IT. MY FAMILY IS GOING THROUGH SOMETHING BUT WITH YOUR CONCERT, IT MADE ME THINK EVERYTHING WILL BE OK. I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW BOTH YOUR KIDS ARE AMAZING AND YOU. YOU MAY NOT THINK THIS BUT WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS AMAZING AND DON’T STOP CAUSE WHAT YOU ARE DOING I KNOW, IT IS GOING TO CHANGE THE WORLD AND I KNOW IT.”

 HANNAH, 6TH GRADE STUDENT

 

"I LIKED WHEN HE CALLED ON ME BECAUSE OF MY BROKEN ARM AND SHOWED ME HOW TO DO THE MOVES.” 

ANGEL, STUDENT

  

"I LOVED MR. COKER'S PRESENTATION AND STILL INCORPORATE HIS LESSON, SONGS, AND MORE INTO MY LESSONS. I FEEL THIS WAS AN EXPERIENCE FOR THE STUDENTS TO REMEMBER. I ONLY HOPE ONE DAY I CAN BE AS ENTERTAINING AND REACH OUT TO CHILDREN AND TEACHERS THE WAY HE DID. MY STUDENTS STILL REMEMBER. I PUT UP THE W AND THEY KNOW WHAT IT MEANS. LOVE MORE, LAUGH MORE, HUG MORE, WEZMORE! "                                                                                       

R. TREVIÑO, MUSIC TEACHER

 

"YOU HAVE THE NATURAL ABILITY TO PRESENT MATERIAL IN A VERY ORGANIZED WAY. YOU REALLY KNOW HOW TO EFFECTIVELY CAPTIVATE THE AUDIENCE. YOUR CONTENT WAS RELEVANT, YOUR FORMAT WAS VISUALLY APPEALING, AND EASY TO FOLLOW AND UNDERSTAND. YOU'RE A REAL DESIGNER AT HEART. YOU EFFECTIVELY COMMAND ATTENTION AND YOU HAVE NO PROBLEM MANAGING LARGE GROUPS DURING THE PRESENTATION. MOST IMPORTANTLY, YOUR PRESENTATION TARGETS THE HEART IN AN UNFORGETTABLE WAY. THANK YOU FOR COMING AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE HEARTS OF OUR CHILDREN AT GUZMAN ELEMENTARY."

G. GUERRERO, KINDER TEACHER
