Thankful for great opportunities!

Friday night at Sugas was a blast. Each time I perform and get joy from providing great entertainment and fun music that everyone enjoys. I am grateful for the owners, Dr. Hiner and Mrs. Hiner for allowing me to share my gift with their customers! I really love it when my fans are celebrating marriage, birthdays and even class reunions it just makes the night even brighter. I know we may sometimes get overloaded with work, families and responsibilities, but let’s slow down this holiday just to appreciate what we have, period. We have life, freedom and unconditional love if you choose.  Embrace every moment you have with family, parents if they are still living, children and most importantly be grateful for a job that has provided a way to survive and keep things going!  I am grateful for a wonderful management team, producers, musicians and other artists that have worked with me and supported me over the years. I sincerely thank the radio stations, program managers, marketing directors, publicist, endorsement companies and magazine owners and editors for supporting me as an independent artist this year!   This has truly been an amazing year with recognition, consideration for the GRAMMYS 2016, Teacher of the Year and other music related nominations. Thank you to every promoter, venue owner and sponsor for hiring or booking me for your events and venues! Every time I touch the stage I consider that’s a gift from God to have the opportunity to express my deep appreciation and love for music. So when you see me close my eyes while I’m performing, it’s just because I become so spiritually connected and allow every note to shower happiness, joy, peace, and serenity to the world! I appreciate you for staying with me. The best is yet to come!!


Just a little higher!  Well, sometimes it seems like so hard, exhausting and overwhelming with all of the many things we are faced with in our lives. Stay encouraged! Just when I’m about to throw in the towel or I don’t have enough, need more or just simply pooped amazingly God shows that He is God! I mean every single time. This applies to absolutely everything we encounter.  Remember God created everything, really He did.  I’ve grown to embrace a deeper meaning of who God is and who He is not. For some they may feel that we are being punished but that’s not the truth. The truth is we are faced with results or consequences for our free will of choices.  So even when I’m down, I now look at how I could made a better choice or even could I have thought things through before making a decision.  As we travel our individual journey in this amazing life cycle let’s just remember God desires the best for each of us even in the mist of hard times. Push a little harder, stay a little longer and move up just a little higher! Say that it is so, believe it, claim it and receive everything your heart desires! Amen!




Lately, I been challenging myself to overcome my fears and stop thinking about what others think including family.

This seems to hold us back, keep us in a box and most importantly keep us in fear.

So, I’m sharing my fears and my accomplishments. Recently I learned how to ride a motorcycle. Some may think well, “that’s dangerous”, “that’s crazy”, or “I know how, so what’s new”. That’s all cool, but when you’ve feared bikes and know the dangers of it I ran away from it. I started by riding on the back of one, then my son earned his license and bought his first bike. Well, it seemed that if I’m going to do it, then do it ride and learn and know all of the do’s and don’ts. I did! I had my son to give me simple lessons then I took the class and passed! The very same day I completed my course I went straight to DPS to get my license. Now, I’m riding, owning and enjoying my very first bike and I love it! It was so cool to share my first ride with my son on my new bike.

So, I do have other accomplishments and some on the table to achieve. The thing is, I will accomplish my goals and step on all my fears!!!!

Go for it, let no one, and I mean no ONE tell you there’s no other way, you can’t do that, that’s impossible, you’re crazy or even stupid. Because in reality they are only expressing their own fears on you!!!!!

Share your story with me.
