I’ve been in the recording studio with Grammy-nominated legend Ruthie Foster and award-winning singer and producer Daniel Barrett. We have joined forces to create an album together. I’m flattered beyond belief that these two superstars want me on an album. After all, I’m relatively new to being a musician. And I’ve been a long time fan of both of them.
