“We are all broken vessels on a journey… He seals our wounds with gold, His crimson, because He loves us unconditionally…” marie a. garton
It has always been my prayer since I was 5 that I would be able to share music with others…music that would help them feel good inside…music that would make them happy. Many years had passed before seeing that prayer unfold. In retrospect, it was unfolding from the moment of that young girl’s prayer. Along the way, God placed influential people in my journey, good and not so good, so that I may grow from the moments of life. In 2014, I met talented people from Nashville that opened the door for me to write and share what had always been my prayer. I released my freshman and sophomore recording projects in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
For many years, it was always a dream of mine to record a Christmas album. Margaret Becker and I paired up once again to make this dream a reality. However, in August 2018, amid my anticipation to record, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, so the forward movement of my Christmas album came to a halt. Now, here we are, after 15 months of surgeries, chemo, and other medical care, along with online writing sessions, and the physical traveling back and forth to Nashville, the album, EMMANUEL, was born. May you be blessed by the music of this project, which was the collaboration of many talented souls worldwide. Prayers and many blessings upon you this holiday and Christmas season.
