Mission Statement

To be a true worshipper and servant of Christ, and to lead many into the presence of God through my music.


Bio

I lived in different parts of the world for some years until in 2012 when I moved to Windsor, Ontario, Canada with my husband and daughter.

My involvement in music began early in life and has varied over the years from choirs to solos, from piano playing to songwriting. My first album 'No place like here' was released in 2007.

In the midst of the excitement of writing songs and recording, my prayer is that I don't lose sight of the fact that it's all empty without His presence. May I never get carried away with outward forms of worship and end up losing a true heart of devotion to Christ.

Speaking of recordings.... my new album, "Like the Rain" is now available! I'm really excited about it. It's been a long journey! I am also curious as to how people will find it, because it is such a blend of styles, and isn't very conventional. I'm so thankful for the people that God gave me to help develop the basic song ideas into what they became in the end.

The songs I write are birthed out of my relationship with God, as well as the tests, trials and joys of everyday life.

My prayer is that people will relate to the message in my music...and that the Holy Spirit will use it to touch their lives in a real, tangible and lasting way.

I was humbled and thrilled that my first album "No place like here" received some nominations!

The song "No place like your presence" was nominated by the Gospel Music Association of Canada (GMA) for URBAN/R&B/SOUL SONG OF THE YEAR in 2008 and the album was nominated for URBAN/R&B/SOUL ALBUM OF THE YEAR also in 2008.

Also, the East coast Music Association (ECMA), nominated the album "No place like here" for GOSPEL RECORDING OF THE YEAR in 2009.

On the new album, the track "That's Why" was recently nominated Jazz/Blues Song of the Year!
