I am honored and thankful to be blessed with the opportunity to work with Betsy Brumley and the “I’ll Fly Away Foundation” because their mission represents the essence of what I live for!
My mission is seeking ways and means to incorporate the art and science of music into human lives so as to create an “all is well”spiritual melody and a natural rhythm among people to perpetuate cultural harmony among all of the members of our community. I love this!!!
I will be standing tall, filled with passion and proudly at the Power of Music Festival and Music Conference April 26th and 27th.
If you care about this kind of thinking I humbly ask you to join us, interact with us and support us. If you take music out of our lives we cease to exist as a human race.
