She sang in front of more than 15,000 people at Battery Park in Manhattan for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and for more than a million people at the 2011 “Salute to Israel” parade, also in Manhattan.

Nirschel performed the award-winning song, “I Am Me,” at State Cinema in Stamford on Monday. Constituting America is a nonprofit organization founded in 2010 with the mission of utilizing culture, film, television and music to educate Americans about the importance of the U.S. Constitution.
