In 2007, I was honored to be invited to the Transformational Leadership Council (TLC) During that time, I was introduced to the TLC members, consisting of the world's greatest motivational authors and speakers. It was then I shared with them my idea to produce an album combining for the first time motivational author's words with music. We would share my original compositions together, inspired by their greatest quotes, and produce the world's first great motivational album. Almost one year later, the dream has come to reality. It was my honor to work together with one of the world's greatest pianists, Mr. Marvin Goldstein. During our time together creating this album, I would listen to the quotes and then sing a song to Marvin, and behold, the songs came to life. Marvin's gift and talent was to be able to put the spirit of my words and melodies into the piano, and together magic was created. Join us for an unbelievable adventure through music and words to help you each morning, noon and night to be inspired and to always know your true gift is within you. Thank you to all of you, who helped, participated, created, and financed The Gift of Words and Music to make this album become a reality. May our journeys take us to many places ... may our paths cross ... and may you always remember you are loved!
