In 1976, I Iost the desire to create music. I knew how to create music but I didnât know how to live. In 1994,
due to a course of events and experiences, many of which I call miracles, I came back into music.
My purpose now is to create beautiful music both instrumentally and vocally that people of all ages and backgrounds will enjoy. I love the term âworld musicâ; I hope my music reaches people all over the world.
* Many of these great musicians and artist have past away. Their spirits live on in me and I am sure many others.
