On 5/12/06 my maternal Grandfather died of cancer. Exactly seven months later, on 12/5/06, my mother was taken by the same disease. She was a young woman who took the best care of herself. They both set the bar high for the entire family as examples of strong, successful leaders.
It was my mother's dying wish for me to have my voice heard. It was she that influenced me to start private voice lessons at the age of seven. It is time for me to do something to give back and make a change for the future.
This album, I have put together of work that made my mother proud of me. "Do you hear that?" she would say as she played my music for everyone, promoting me even from her hospital bed.
I hope as people buy and hear this record, they will be aware of you and what you did to get me to this place. I love and miss you, Michele Russo Jillson.
The proceeds from this album, SONGS SHE LOVED, will go to cancer research. I hope that someday people like my young mother can be saved from this horrible disease that has reached epidemic proportions.
THANK YOU TO YOU for buying this album and helping to spread the word about it so that it can make the biggest impact and do the most good!
This album is about family. It's about the kind of love and support and responsibility that comes with being part of a larger family. So, I want to say thank you to the families that have treated me like one of their own. This album would not be what it is without your encouragement and support.
