Check out the official video for "Summerville" 

Today I am proud and excited to present to you all the video for my song "Summerville" from my EP The Back Porch Sessions. This video is special because it was filmed in Summerville, GA, birthplace of my mother, Poopoo, and my great grandmother, during my show there on June 25. Several members of my family make cameos in this beautiful piece. A huge thank you to the city of Summerville, my family, and to Caleb Childers at Malachi Films for capturing the magic of this place and its people. If you like it, share it. Check it out by clicking the video above...


New Music..."Seeds" 

This song was written by myself, Deanna Walker, & Rick Beresford out of concern for and frustration with the current state of affairs in our country...and this world. Inspired by the Mexican Proverb, "They tried to bury us. They didn't know we were seeds." Friends, I urge you to keep up the good fight and never stop seeking the righteous. Vote, volunteer, boycott, protest. Use your voice, it's your right and the time is NOW!!!

Happy Anniversary!!! 

It's hard to believe that a year ago this week The Back Porch Sessions was released...thanks to all of you!!!  It's been an incredible ride since then. I got to work with some of the best in the business and life. I found my voice and place in this industry as an executive producer, artist, singer, and a woman. I overcame the fear of releasing independently. The project has been featured in such publications as Rolling StonePeople Magazine, and Rolling Out Magazine. I was interviewed by Tavis Smiley and even Perez Hilton sang its praises!!!  Not too shabby for Team Little Engine that Could aka God is my Agent!!!   

I can't say thank you enough for making this all possible for me. Your contributions and faith sustained me then and keep me going today. I will be shooting a video for "Summerville" in the next couple weeks and I am excited to say that I am in the process of creating two new projects, a follow up to The Back Porch Sessions called Revival and a children's lullaby project called Seeds. I'll keep you posted on their progress and eventual release.  

Thank you all again, so very much!!!  Happy Anniversary!!!
