Check out my new Gospel/Spiritual song video on my Songs & Videos page--"KINGDOM COME"-...

It's my Valentine to all who are sad of heart from the loss of a loved one. A happy message about God's Kingdom for which we have been praying for over 2000 years! It's at hand! Jump for joy!!

I also added a couple more videos to that page...

Nov. 2015

I was honored to have been invited to give a presentation of my family's musical history today at the Florida Hotel in Orlando, FL for the National League of American Pen Women! I met many wonderful women there who claim they really enjoyed my presentation! I will be becoming a member in the very near future! Special thanks to Carol Welsh for inviting me!



It was a sad month this year because of the passing of my beloved uncle Don Chapel on Dec. 6th, at age 84.  Please visit my Facebook page and his own website for more info. He was a hit songwriter and performer and was performing until last summer. He will be sorely missed and always loved. Rest in Peace Unca Don....

HAPPY MAY   2017

~~ I wrote a new song and created a video  titled "SNOWY MORNING COMING DOWN" from the title and music of a beautiful instrumental song of the same title written by Justin Johnson! He is a phenomenal young musician!
