This year marks twenty years since Caron's voice first caught collective and international attention with Keep on Movin' and Back to Life -- two of her most popular, signature songs that are still global favorites that can be heard in clubs and on the radio everyday around the world. Both songs are indeed anthems for continued hope and have also been performed at international festivals, benefits, professional league ball games, fundraisers, and as part of commercials and motion picture soundtracks.

In 2008, Keep On Movin' was heard at a number of pep rallies on the campaign trail. Caron performed at a Presidential Inaugural Ball for President & Mrs. Obama on Monday, January 20, 2009 in Washington, DC. She hopes to formally perform at The White House marking such a milestone of her music, as well as, reflecting the historical significance of current times.
