Rest in Peace: I am heartbroken to hear the news that we lost the beautiful Aretha Franklin recently.
I can tell you the impact she's had on my life as a singer is tremendous. I can remember in college when I was a voice major singing Aretha's songs in the practice room when I should have been singing opera. Driving my fellow musicians crazy but making my soul happy.
She paved the way for so many singers throughout the years. She was a true diva in every sense of the word! Aretha's music will live on and inspire generations to come.
This is a devastating loss but I'm so glad she's at peace now. Her beautiful voice lives on to give us comfort. My thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones and fans.
World Premiere: I'm happy to announce my music video, "Never Ever Give Up" is now available on YouTube. It's a feel-good, inspirational song that will motivate you to keep striving for your dreams and to never ever give up!
