and Inspirational Speaker

Beltzer’s efforts have received extensive media attention over the years. He has been featured on multiple news networks, including CNN, CBS, and NBC; reporting programs such as 60 Minutes and the Today Show; and in publications such as People and The New York Times.
In his one-of-a-kind presentation, Beltzer involves the audience in the complete production of an individualized song for an ill child living in the local area. The recording is done live, and audiences are called on to raise their voices in unison for choruses.
An Unforgettable Experience
John’s presentation is an experience unlike any other. It unites people in a common goal, sharing in the creation of a gift of love for a struggling child. Beltzer is an inspirational speaker who will encourage and draw out audiences to participate and engage in the creative process.
During the presentation, Beltzer shares his own tragic and uplifting story about how he overcame the loss of his fraternal brother Julio, who committed suicide when he was just 24 years old. They learn that “Songs of Love” was a song Julio composed a mere 2 months before his passing, revealing how personal tragedy can be transformed into an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.
At the end of the presentation, everyone walks away enlightened and elevated. The child and his or her family receive a CD filled with the compassion of a mass of unified voices. Audiences receive a free mp3 recording of their song, as well as the unforgettable joy and wonder of bringing light to the eyes of a suffering soul.
There is no event quite like this for building unity and energy in a team. Beltzer has been hired to unify and motivate many corporate teams such as Hasbro and Mass Mutual, as well as organizations such as Million Dollar Round table and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

I just finished listening to our “song of love” to Patti Munoz. Hearing it nearly inspired me as much as when we recorded it in San Antonio. For my team of nearly 1000 people, the whole experience equaled the inspiration they felt when they sang a “song of love” to Izzy Vigil at last year’s meeting in Orlando. I am delighted that our South Central team has been able to bring such happiness to two wonderful children. I can assure you that we benefited as much from believing that we could be of help to them.
