Her husband, Leo Colon whose musical career includes musician and music director for Grammy nominated Vanessa Williams, Anita Baker, Chaka, Pattie Austin, BeBe Winans, and countless others dedicated themselves to the expression of God's faithfulness in all. They produced this mellow cd to usher you into God's Presence. They also opened a church and named it "In His Presence." NY, IHPFWC.org
What kind of music is this? Will you do a holy dance? naah, will you need a tambourine? Probably not. Get a cup of tea, light a candle, or turn off your TV and put the CD in and just think about how wonderful it is to know that “Jesus Said! Or maybe, you are in your car and just want a smooth jazz sound, contemporary and relaxing for your journey, then put the cd in. Having a dinner party? It’s the perfect Christian cd for having couples over or just some friends. In a relationship? Looking for a good wedding song? "Thank You" a lovely duet by Dorothy and her husband Leo, who by the way has a cd coming out soon!
Dorothy has dedicated her cd to her Mother "Doris Ade' because it was her mother’s intervention on Mother’s Day that saved her life.
There is nothing more important in life than doing God's will. Every cd is not for everyone, but every gift has a right to reach its recipient, if it’s not for you, it’s for someone you know. Thank you for investing in our ministry.
God bless you! Jesus Said!
