To the delight of many, Alex had decided to stay with the group and returned with them. By now many fans had come to love her wonderful presence on stage.
She had quickly become a true favorite of many.
As this short fall tour wound down, the DVD “Songs From the Heart” was being promoted on PBS stations around the country. When fans got their first glimpse of the DVD, they new something very special had been produced. To the delight of fans, it was obvious that Alex was going to return to America in the spring of 2010 with this wonderful production.

As disappointed as so many fans were, every one of them knew that Alex was to be commended for putting her family ahead of her career. Alex’s decision served to increase the admiration fans already had for her.
