TYSM USA Today Magazine!

TYSM USA Today Magazine for publishing this article on how I’ve been doing my best to spread love/peace/unity. Touched by Susan SurfTone‘s brilliant writing and expanding on her Huffington Post article about me! All thanks to Shannon Rose HollyWood for getting this published! The article quotes my beloved husband Jeffrey who’s believed in me more than I have myself and it quotes Bill Hare top, front and center thank you ever so much! You are a joy to work with! Heartfelt quote from Armand Hutton my soul brother from another mother thank you I’m so very blessed to have you and Bill on my team with many more songs to come! So appreciate the quote from Joanne Lazzaro on her flutes aiding in her own interpretation of my song “Twist Like a Dragon” co-written by Nel Gerome (he and I wrote all the album songs). Thank you Kori L Carothers for your quote as well you’re such a wonderful person and that means the most to me that everyone I worked with on this album is a good human being first and foremost. Millions have talent but without heart it is meaningless. Glad the article shines light on the two charities I help regularly by serving on their Board (www.drivehope.org) and Advisory Board (www.safepassagelives.org). Bless you all and may this album bring joy and conviction to be the best person we can be and to help others wherever we can So glad USA Today Magazine gave Harrison Funk proper copyright photography credit

Klubjumpers Offer to Remix “Afterglow”

So very grateful to Dan of Klubjumpers for approaching me to remix “Afterglow (A Cappella) feat Armand Hutton” into a pop dance remix as well as an extended dance remix! He has high hopes in getting it placed! And any sync license signed would be a direct reflection on the team because Dan and his brother Sam are amazing!

Love you guys!

My New Single to be Released Soon!

My new single was going to be released Oct/Nov but it has been postponed for early next year since Christmas songs are coming on the radio stations soon.  Industry professionals are predicting “Holding Onto Nothing (But Love)” will be a big hit, played across the nation on FM stations and reach the top 10 on the minor charts. We shall see! Get the latest here and on social media!

I’ve posted a near-ready draft of the song to my pledgers on Kickstarter, prior to departing overseas this month.

Looking forward to performing before my departure at my Kickstarter Party within the next week.  My last performance was so much fun at JJ Blues in San Jose, CA, on October 12, 2016, with fellow Grammy members prior to the initial ballot.

So looking forward to releasing my new song “Holding Onto Nothing (But Love)” with talented teenage artists as background vocalists.  My sister in song “Aeone,” was going to do a featured vocal but we will be brainstorming to highlight her lovely voice on a song for the album. The finishing touches are being made then it will be featured on my Kickstarter for the album and released with major label distribution.  Stay tuned here or on Twitter!
