Gina Roche, composer, jazz vocalist and guitarist, is happy to celebrate the release of her second CD, 'Thankfully,' a personal CD of original compositions. These compositions were inspired by experiences in my life over the past few years. Starting with the title track 'Thankfully', a composition inspired by my husband John and his loving kindness with our daughters, to the song 'Flying' a song written during a family intervention with my brother, about what my family went through, how it affected my mom, my brother. I am happy to report he is doing well and working to help others in recovery. There is a sweet, funny song 'Breakfast in Bed' about the challenges of romance while having children (who like to get up too early in the morning!), to the song 'Be The Change' this one touches on how even though life can become hectic, busy & frustrating at times, I am finding out that letting go of my past grievances & forgiving (myself & others) helps me make a difference of kindness in the world. --- Inspired by the Gandhi quote to 'be the change you wish to see in the world' and the book The Law of Forgiveness by Connie Domino. This is a CD of Thanks, Courage & Inspiration. I am counting my blessings, every single one. Thank you for purchasing my CD. It comes from my heart.
