Spiritually Organic Music
Prayers do get answered in unexpected ways. I thank God for giving me the talent, skill and drive it took to take such a journey. Thank you to my husband Ash and my children Justin, Kyle, and Katelyn who patiently supported all my dreams and energy that went into completing this CD, their input and never ending love, in believing in me. Thank you Mark and Kelly Jarel for believing and always wanting to listen. To Colleen Jones and Jackie Anastasi for being my best friends, helping me with my children and telling me never to give up. To Nabil & Nabila Girgis for open arms to watch the grandkids. Thanks, Mom and Dad, for teaching me to reach for the stars and make it happen, for always believing in me no matter what brainy ideas Mark, Richard and I would come up with. You showed us that with faith, love, patience and attitude, all things are possible. You were right. Thank you Tata & Popops for giving me my first guitar when I was seven and giving me the privilege of listening to two professional musicians singing Cuban/Puerto Rican songs and teaching me to sing with you. Thank you, Dan, for your friendship and making my musical dream a reality. Thanks for knowing all my musical explanations of how I want to hear something actually happen. Thank you for making it fun.
