Life Is Sweet
This album contains a group of songs written during the most difficult years I have faced in my young life. These songs have helped me process and heal after the loss five of my closest family members including my mother, father, grandmother, great-aunt and uncle all within a twelve month period. The songs represent not only my sadness and grief but my strength and passion to overcome my loss. The song, 'The Beginning,' is a narrative account of my current situation, of my great discovery. You see, in the midst of all the loss, I made a discovery that I, at 34 years old, was adopted. My parents that had loved and raised me were not my biological ones. And now, several years later I have found my birth parents and a whole new loving family.
