Ashley touched the hearts of many people on the cruise including Pastor Charles McRaney of New Heart Baptist Church in Hattiesburg, Mississippi who said, “It was a fabulous cruise and I met some amazing people. We praised God from morning to night. On the last night of the cruise I met a young lady who blessed my heart. Ashley Deramus sang with the Crabb Family and when she was finished led the Pledge of Allegiance and then said she had two goals. One is to set the Guinness Book of World Records for leading the Pledge in all fifty states and the other is to bring awareness to Down-Syndrome and get the right for Down-Syndrome people the right to vote. There is just something very special about this young lady.”
