Melinda Starnes is a schoolteacher who believes greatly in arts infusion in the regular classroom. She is currently on medical leave without pay. A neuromuscular disease has decided to slow her down, causing her to face early retirement due to permanent disability. She is working hard on promoting her music, now that she has time (and needs the money). She also, after great success with her first CD, has made this wonderful new collections of songs under the umbrella of 'Kindred Spirits'. Whether you are a banker, lawyer, teacher, doctor, custodian, stay-at-home parent, etc., you will feel the bond that we all share through the medium of music. We are truly kindred spirits. All barriers will seem to disappear as you listen to this collection of both light and lyrical piano compositions. You will feel drawn in and swept away by the beautiful orchestrations, as well as by the two vocal tunes. This CD is guaranteed to keep you humming and to fill you with peace. You'll be glad you took a chance on this little known independent artist!
