Spring has most definitely sprung in the deep south!! The flowers are blooming, pollen is at record levels, and the notorious spring storms have begun making their debut!! 2013 has been a great ride, so far, with performances and conferences and writing new songs keeping me busy! Big plans this weekend to travel to Atlanta for some incredible training with AMTC, and I've been busy sifting through a mountain of music to determine the perfect songs to take with me! I'm looking forward to a fantastic weekend!! And, May is gonna start with a bang!! I'm gearing up to sing with the 16 piece jazz swing band, The Original Sultans of Swing, for a big fundraiser night at the Levite Jewish Community Center in Birmingham... A tribute to Glenn Miller and the music of the WWII era! Come out and support if you are in the area!!! Click the link to see the event poster for details! Swing_into_Spring_Card-1.pdf
For any of you who may have missed the event, I have video that was taken this past month of me leading worship for the Women's Event at First Baptist Church Trussville.
I'll finish out May leading in worship the Senior Adult Sunday School ministry of FBCT at their May luncheon.
And, as if all of that isn't enough ,my voice student roster continues to grow, and I'm thrilled to coach some wonderful young ladies with much potential, I am busy being a mom to two precious girls and a wife to my sweet husband! So much variety, and so much fun! I love that all of these performances require that I work up music from a variety of genres... keeps me fresh and it never gets dull!! So thankful the Lord gave me the gift of music and is providing me the opportunity to use it!
Happy Spring, everyone!!
