TODAY WE WERE INVITED TO ATTEND A THANK YOU EVENT FROM THE MADONNA HOUSE GROUP ASSOCIATED WITH THE EDMONTON MARIAN CENTRE.
WE WERE ASKED TO SING AS PART OF THE AFTER DINNER ENTERTAINMENT SO I CHOSE THE SONG I WROTE SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS AMAZING GROUP WHO HAVE DEDICATED THEIR LIVES TO FEEDING AND CLOTHING THE HOMELESS. IT IS CALLED ” SERVANT’S HEART ” .
TERRY SANG HIS SONG ” STREETS OF SILENCE ” WHICH SPEAKS ABOUT THE HOMELESS THAT ALMOST GO UNSEEN EVERY DAY AND WHOM THIS WONDERFUL GROUP OF PEOPLE CARE FOR ….EVERY DAY.
IT WAS NICE TO CATCH UP WITH SOME OF THE MANY VOLUNTEERS WHO WERE BEING THANKED TODAY. WHAT A BLESSING MADONNA HOUSE IS TO OUR CITY…OUR WORLD.
GLAD THE WEATHER HELD FOR THE ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST PARISH PICNIC. I WILL GRAB ANY CHANCE TO PERFORM AND SHARE MY MUSIC SO I WAS HAPPY ONCE AGAIN TO BE ASKED TO SING FOR FOLKS WHILE THEY ENJOYED THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR LUNCHES.
JUST FINISHED A 2 1/2 HOUR REHEARSAL FOR MY 3RD ALBUM. I JUST LOVE WHAT PAULA DOES FOR THE HARMONIES AND YOU WILL ALSO LOVE WHAT TERRY ROPCHAN ADDS WITH HIS GORGEOUS LEAD , CLASSICAL GUITAR PLAYING. WAIT TILL WE GET THE OTHER SISTERS OVER HERE. NOTHING LIKE SISTER VOCALS. NOW TIME TO RELAX IN THE SUNSHINE.
I think you might enjoy this recent radio spot about my friend, Jason’s song, THE KING LIVES ON. Jason was born with Cerebral Palsy and ‘speaks’ with his keyboard. I helped Jason create his song by writing the music , finding an Elvis Impersonator, and asking James Seabrook at Two Bodies of Water Studios if we could surprise Jason with a day in the recording studio and gift of a professional recording. Jason was further delighted to have his song recently played ON the radio.
Thanks 630 CHED for making Jason’s dream come true !
It was really great to get back to rehearsing for my future house concert with the excellent Terry Ropchan . Terry has agreed to play guitar with me so we have some fun weeks ahead preparing.
Last night Bart Millard from the band MERCY ME was at our home to do a witness talk about how he came to write the song ” I Can Only Imagine ” . He also spoke about his new position with Trinity Western University . He mentors young musicians with their passion for songwriting and all that goes into realizing your dreams in this regard.
What an honour to have Bart in our home as I have loved that song and all his music since they came on the scene about 23 years ago !
Finally , I just heard today that one of my songs, ” My Heaven ” was chosen to be played for the upcoming podcast on Women of Substance Radio’s Valentine Show…
