Alan Pedersen is an award-winning speaker, songwriter and recording artist. His inspirational message of hope and his music have resonated deeply with those facing a loss or adversity in their lives and have made him one of the most popular and in- demand presenters in the world on finding hope after loss. Since the death of his 18-year-old daughter Ashley in 2001, Alan has traveled to more than 1,300 cities speaking and playing his original music. Alan also successfully served four years as the Executive Director of The Compassionate Friends, the largest grief organization in the world.
Using his original music, anecdotes and stories drawn from his own experiences and the shared journeys of the bereaved, Alan travels the nation, as both the founder of ANGELS ACROSS THE USA mission and keynote speaker, workshop presenter at many prestigious conferences including: The World Gathering on Bereavement, The Compassionate Friends National Conference and The National Gathering of Bereaved Parents of the USA.
Though, under “normal circumstances” most would not consider being related with the Words “Bereaved” or “Grief” as a positive, yet for those who have spent time with Alan Pedersen, it is powerful blessing. In the Bereavement Community, Alan Pedersen has become synonymous with HEALING.
Alan is currently on the road with The Angels Across the USA Tour where he will speak and perform in over 100 U.S. cities in 2018.
The Angels Across the USA Tour
The Angels Across the USA Tour 2018, is all about hope, featuring the message and music of Alan Pedersen. The Tour is supported by hundreds of families and organizations who sponsor butterfly decals bearing the names and home towns of their loved ones who have died. These decals are lovingly placed on the Angels Across the USA van which travels across the country.
