It's my birthday today! I want to thank all my friends and family who sent me birthday texts, Facebook posts, and some who actually called by telephone (Imagine that in 2014, some people still make voice-to-voice phone calls :P). My only birthday request is for you all to continue listening to my current music playlist and to keep up with upcoming projects, as I LOVE to entertain you with great music and performances! Click here to listen to my current playlist.
In the near future, you will witness new songs on my playlist, as I will be collaborating and jamming out with dear friend and American Idol Season 11 contestant, Kalyn McNeil. She is sassy, sexy, and super talented! Not to mention, we make a pretty kick-butt duo, if I may say so myself ;). Below are some photos of my soulful partner-in-crime (in performance on American Idol) and click here to take a sneak-listen of her tantalizing vocals-->Kalyn
In other news, please send prayers out to the family (including son, Clayton McDonnell) of Richard McDonnell, founder of MaxJazz who passed recently. He was a true angel, and had an impact on many musiciand and individuals. He personally encouraged my musical abilities and I have fond memories of playing for him and recieving his encouragement. I am, as many others are,truly heartbroken due to this loss and I will never forget his support and friendship. He is truly an inspiration and always will be ~~~ <3.
