"Good Morning, Lord" is how I always begin my day. I'm a former Dean Martin Golddigger who is committed to digging for true gold that can only be found in our heart. My goal is to be an instrument of God's love, promoting peace and unity through song. All my life I've been a singer of many styles of music but it is when singing music that give praise and honor to our Lord that truly inspires me and makes me feel complete.
This album is made up of some original compositions written at various times in my life. The cover songs are songs that have been regularly requested, especially when I sing in church. I don't believe that "religion" should separate us. We are all brothers and sisters connected by our Divine Creator. "What A Wonderful World" because we're all in it together!
You'll hear a special song in Hebrew, "Jerusalem Of Gold," and whether or not you understand Italian, you'll get it when I sing" Mamma" and "The Prayer." I'm told that "Good Morning, Lord" is also great to listen to before sleep, as if "Good Night, (my) Lord." "God Made Them All" was written for my children and "the people every color everywhere, God made them all.....". I've included traditional favorites for all ages, like "The Lord's Prayer" and "Ave Maria." "Rain On Me" is about the Lord's forgiveness, healing, and awakening to fresh beginnings to be "free like the birds who fly and soar through the sky....."
I'm playing piano on tracks 1-11 and guitar on tracks 1,3,7,12. Chicago's Frank Caruso on track 13. Bonus tracks with my dear and amazingly talented friend, David Benoit, were recorded in 1986, along with a great group of musicians.
"Welcome To My World" as Dean Martin once sang, "knock and the door will open, seek and ye shall find, ask..."
It has been a long time dream of mine to record an album for the Lord. "To dream the Impossible Dream...." I consider every song on this album a prayer. I pray you will listen to this music with an open heart and BE BLESSED!
"Let Love Lead The Way" to our "Lord Beautiful Lord" and if you should ever feel there is no way out, you only need say "Just Give Me Jesus In My Life"; as in "Song For Tracy, Jesus says there is one thing I want to tell you, it's that I love you dearly....." Thanks for listening!
Shalom and Amore from my heart to yours,
