Words from the artist: This project means a lot to me, I am releasing songs that speak to the heart, soul and mind; Songs that were written years ago but were not recorded. I decided to take the and make them my own. It also gave me something extra to do while away from my sister, who at the time was away at school and working on our next project. I needed something to keep me busy and what better than to do something that I love; singing, being in the studio, making songs that make others happy and feel good about love, feeling loved, whether by God, Family or that special someone. All in all I am proud of this project no matter what direction it takes. I enjoy working with young people singing & training them. I am willing in anyway to help build the confidence in the talented youth of St. Maarten Neth. Ant. And around the world. All we need is Love. The Love of GOD, CHRIST and One another, Never stop. HE didn't!
