The Story Behind the Song, All My Life
My best friend at the time was Ann Taylor. Ann was in her 80's, and always loved me unconditionally. It was a few days before Thanksgiving. I awakened in the middle of the night with a song. So, I grabbed my tape recorder, sang it, and went back to sleep. The next day, I called Ann to make arrangements to pick her up for Thanksgiving. No answer. More calls. No answer. I asked another friend to drop by her place. She later called to tell me Ann passed away. I know Ann's parting gift was ALL MY LIFE because one the lyric in the refrain: Oh, my darling. She used to always call me her darling. I sang it at her memorial service to an ovation. I know that Ann is blessing this award-winning project!
How You Can Help
Since June 2012, I've not been able to devote ANY time to posting on this blog, or reaching out to those of you who are in the music industry to arrange, produce, mix, remix, and record ALL MY LIFE and WHERE'S IT AT to introduce the music (and the mission) to a wider audience. My work as a partner in Media Classics Ltd production company based in the U.K. and practice at the Healing Artist Studio has been keeping me very busy.
