I am learning as I go in the music business.
I am networking and learning from other artists as well. There is more to it than meets the eye.

There are many pros and cons in the music business.
I do this for the love of it and just try to let it flow. Getting overly caught up in the business part shuts off the creative flow. I try to keep those part away from each other! Lol!

I really like releasing singles
because there will always be a song fans like more than the others. Albums have their advantages because it gives the listener a more well-rounded view of your true musical style. A single sometimes will not convey this.

I like everything about social media.
The ability to reach so many people and get to know a bit about each on personally is awesome. I am very experienced at social media from 25 years in online marketing of various projects and products, so I am truly comfortable anywhere online and I have extensive advertising networks built up already. I benefit massively from exposure to my social networks.

I try to include more modern approach to the modern gospel genre
I have chosen to present music too , but there is an element of flexibility you have to have on anything musical. I never know what song will have what style until I produce it.

Through prayer and just plain old stubbornness!
The word they use is determination when used as a compliment ! Lol!

I stick to a daily schedule and I don’t do phones without an appt.
If I did not do this my life would be total chaos!

I would love to have 5 minutes alone with Vin Diesel (Mark Sinclair).
I think he is just a heartthrob and I have long admired his acting career.

My mother was a gospel singer on the radio each week
with a group from the 60’s called The Gospel Pep Tones”. My grandmother was a jazz singer,songwriter and she was with Cab Calloway and his ragtime band. I started musically as a child violinist in the third grade, and a child member of the youth choir at the age of 5. I have many fond memories of my violin, flute, and miniature piano as a little girl. I even had a record player that played little plastic 45 rpm records!

Power of Praise 

An instrumental song strongly resounding the praise of God.
The music actually came to me in dreams repeatedly until I decided to actually produce it. This started to happen in childhood and grew stronger and clearer as I grew older. I truly feel the Lord wanted me to produce this music for his glory. I learned by many experiences in life to thank God in advance for what you are asking him to do for you. Never doubting, always believing his word to be true. I have seen things manifest over and over and experienced miracles by doing this.

I have been very adept at using electronic recording media
for composing which comes from a love of all things technical and a degree in computer science and technology! I composed this music electronically.

I expect many people to be blessed by listening to this music.
It has special tones embedded that will actually help you to grow spiritually. This is why the music was created to benefit humanity in a special way just by listening. I believe it will contribute to the success of others by listening to it.


I live in Philadelphia, Pa right now,
and the music scene here is full of creative people from all walks of life. Everyone is very accepting and encouraging of artists of all kinds here in the city of brotherly love. This is the perfect environment to grow in here artistically. The old architecture just leads to spectacular inspirations!
