During his remarks to the capacity crowd of 820 at Worcester’s DCU Center, singer and inspirational speaker Mario Arnauz Bonds paused for a moment before breaking into his new song, “Steel.”
“Know who you are,” he sang. “You are a star.”
Bonds, the keynote speaker at the 2018 Association of Developmental Disabilities Providers LEAD! Conference on April 12, brought the crowd to its feet multiple times. His hour-long speech was a highlight in a day filled with them.
