One day my phone rang and I picked it up to hear this…..”Hi Di! I want to make one more C.D., and I want you to be on it with me.” It was my mom. She was about to turn 82.
She had already recorded two C.D.s, but …”just one more….my last one.” After we said our goodbyes I thought about her audiences through the years. They came for weddings and funerals, Easter Sundays and Christmas Eves. They sat in choirs and slipped in and out of folding chairs and pews. I guess through the years, thousands have heard her play. Interesting to note however, she played only for an audience of one…..Jesus Christ. She simply wasn’t interest in fame or fortune, recording contracts or publishing deals. She was happy to be Brother Bob’s wife….the one who sat quietly on the bench and provided the sweetest of sounds that any room could want to hold.
Once the recordings were finished, I realized there simply wasn’t enough room on the jacket to tell the story of the songs, how I came to write the ones that you will hear and why she chose the ones that are included on this disc. I’m grateful for this avenue. You can also read this story HERE.
Thank you for coming by…..
My Best Love,
