Dear Joy, just heard, "This Too Shall Pass", your vocals on this composition are really wonderful as well as the lyrics. The Innocence of your vocal makes the tune really WORK!! Great Job, Also watched the video and that is nice also! Did Jay produce the video?? He produced one of our videos also!
Toodles,

I wrote the song and my husband, Pat, produced it and did the video. Both of our voices are caput! Mine is damaged & I can't sing anymore. My last real vocal is on "First Christmas Snow" and my poor hubby sang until recently when he had to have all his teeth pulled due to an infection and then getting Lyme Disease. I hired a singer off of Sound Better to do This Too Shall Pass. Thanks for asking. I know - I should be in bed.
