People say:
"What an engaging artist!"  "What a lively musical performer!"  "She is so funny!  She never sees a stranger!"
Mo McMorrow is a lively, witty musical performer with a ready smile.  She could not possibly have ever been a shy teenager, literally paralyzed by fright, could she?  According to Mo McMorrow, the answer is most definitely yes -- until she discovered the secrets of leaving shyness behind!  Now, she wants to share her discoveries with you!
