. Which Stephanie Bennett is which?

A. You see here Stephanie Bennett, the Harpist, Composer, Arranger, Recording Artist, Record Producer, occasional Vocalist, Vegan, fan of animals and of animals' rights.  
Some OTHER Stephanie Bennetts who are *NOT* the same person include: 

A New York film and video producer. A Houston dog trainer. A Realtor in Chickahominy (say that ten times fast). A photographer/artist who specializes in creating 'dark, disturbing' (creepy, scary) images. A young lady (and I use that term loosely) whose dream is apparently to break into the (ahem, cough cough, [makes air-quotes with fingers]) "adult modeling" business.  A 'romance' author.  A certified hula hoop teacher. Someone who was in People magazine in '07 for losing 130 pounds (If I ever lost 130 pounds, I'd be anti-gravity. You'd have to tie rocks to me to keep me from floating away).  A Penn State Master Gardener. Someone involved in some sort of legal brou-ha-ha having to do with adoptions.  A Univ. of Buffalo basketball star (Ha! Basketball?? I'm five-foot-nuthin' in heels).  Not one but two Gospel singers (one in Pennsylvania and one in Florida, who is also a communications professor).  A 'dance music' singer (well, she spells her name Stefanie, but iTunes confuses us anyway.) A pastor in Connecticut.  Another pastor in West Virginia. (Or, is that the same gal, who moved? Dunno.) A spay-and-neuter director in Memphis (my hat's off to her for helping the critters!) A museum curator in the UK. 

Repeat: those Stephanie Bennetts are *NOT* the same person who is pictured on this page. and iTunes store: the Stephanie Bennett CDs and songs featuring harp ARE me.  
The Stephanie Bennett Christian CDs and songs are NOT me.  
Any album with "Tazmania" in the title (or the label) is NOT me.

IMDb's Stephanie Bennett VI (the sixth): yes.  IMDb's Stephanie Bennetts I, II, III, IV, V and VII: no.  

Do animals have thoughts? Feelings? It's baffling to me that some people actually still doubt it.  The scientific community (for the most part) has been teaching for hundreds of years that everything animals do is 'just instinct'; but everyone who's ever known an animal knows that they have feelings, just as we do; love, fear, likes and dislikes, sadness, pain, loneliness, suffering.  People would just prefer to believe that animals are more different from us than they really are, to rationalize the horrible exploitation and suffering that humans subject them to.  I wrote a song about a true story about gorilla/cat friends and bear/cat friends... (here is a Youtube video about Wildlife Images, where the bear and cat friends lived.)

Here are some Youtube videos of other animal friends (demonstrating that animals have THOUGHTS and FEELINGS above and beyond 'instinct for survival of their own species', which is all that SOME people think they possess.)

Cat and dolphin friends

Goat and burro friends

Cat and crow friends
