Hey Rod!

You were one of my favorite voices to listen to when I began Broadjam, so please keep it going - you are really talented! Looking forward to working with you soon!

Thank you,

Hi Jeseka, I guess you are referring to the lead vocals on O Holy Night. That wasn't me. It was Gus Lacy from Chicago. He and Light of Love work together. I can sing but just as backing vocals and to fill out harmonies. My forte is songwriting, arranging, producing and jazz piano plus other styles. I hope that doesn't make you change your mind about working with me. Regards,Rod
