In my worst times music has carried me through. In my times of joy music helped me to express it.

My wife passed away Dec 19, 1994; On December 31, 1994 I had to play a New Year’s job. Many of the people that were there knew me; I started to play my first song when they began to stand; they gave me a standing ovation.; for a moment I froze.

The rest of the evening went well, I was in good spirits. After I played the last song reality returned. The magic of music.

Music has been a blessing, John C.
