    ORIGINAL SONG

     I will write a song based off of a transformational story from YOUR life.   I’m particularly interested in “Disaster” stories, but any transformational journey of yours (or a friend/family member) would be great to write about!    I will record a solo version of it and email you the exclusive MP3, as well as post a video of myself performing it on YouTube, for you to share with friends/family. With enough backers, I will release a full album of these songs.
