Of course, worship music is my first passion but jazz is my second musical love. I’ve listened to it for years but never performed it “live” until last year when my friend, David McKay, encouraged me to pursue my interest.
My first official jazz gig was in Atlanta. I was so nervous, however, once I got past the jitters, I had the best time crooning through the tunes.
The next gig was a wedding reception where I had to learn 3 new songs for the bride….one of which is L.O.V.E. by Natalie Cole. That song is special to me because it reminds me of how much I L.O.V.E. Carl. It was a blast! (I’m always careful to sing songs that don’t compromise my beliefs as a Christian)
All that to say, I am realizing that it is never too late to pursue one’s passions…..NEVER.
Christmas almost here and if you love jazz as much as I do, you will enjoy my jazz Christmas CD – The Greatest Gift.
