“IN 2014, I WAS PREPARING FOR MY 50TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION IN 2015. I HAD BEEN SINGING FOR YEARS, BUT I WANTED TO GIVE GOD GLORY IN THE HIGHEST, IN RESPONSE TO THE LIFE GOD HAS GIFTED ME, BY SINGING MY THANKS UNTO THE LORD. AS A RESULT, I DECIDED I WANTED TO BE INTENTIONAL WITH USING MY INSTRUMENT IN A WAY IT HAD NEVER BEEN USED. I BEGAN LOOKING FOR A VOCAL COACH AND I REACHED OUT TO VALERIE GAY...WHO ELSE SHOULD TRAIN MY VOICE? WE BEGAN INTENSIVE TRAINING AND THROUGH THE VOICE LESSONS, I LEARNED HOW TO BETTER CONTROL MY VOICE, HOW TO BREATHE IN ORDER TO PRODUCE THE INTENDED SOUND, AND A YEAR LATER, I WAS ABLE TO LIFT UP A JOYFUL NOISE AND SING "MY TRIBUTE" AT MY 50TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION. THE VOICE LESSONS CONTINUE TO GUIDE MY SINGING TODAY. I AM TRULY GRATEFUL FOR THE TIME VALERIE WAS WILLING TO INVEST IN COACHING MY VOICE AND FOR THE VOCAL GROWTH."
