Hi everyone. My real name is Holly ( like you couldn't guess that one, lol). I love to sing all the time. There is always a song in my heart and usually coming out of my mouth too (just ask the people around me that have to hear it all the time, lol). I've been asked to sing at church, funerals and fundraisers but I've never sung professionally. Never thought anyone would be willing to pay, lol. I just love to sing. I call it my "Soul Food" cause it feeds my soul!! And if my singing can help feed someone elses soul than I'm all the happier
I was born and raised in NJ but have lived in upstate NY for 25 years now. I still consider myself a Jersey girl cuz you can take the girl out of Jersey but you can't take the Jersey out of the girl, lol. I have 2 grown sons and 2 grandsons. I just LOVE being a Nana!!
My mom was my biggest influence in music and life overall. In the brief 16 years I had her with me on this earth, by her example she taught me to love, have compassion, to always help those in need if you can and that no matter how bad things are, they can be worse so be grateful for what you have and joyful in it.
She was a beautiful woman both physically and spiritually. She also had a beautiful voice that was under-used. She was a single mom for several years of my life. I remember when I was about 5 she would get together with the neighbors upstairs and they would all sing together. They were friends with Eddie Rabbit and he and my mom dated for a little while before he left NJ to go to Nashville. Even as a little girl I loved sitting and listening to the four of them sing and play guitars together. I remember the first time my mom heard Eddie on the radio, we were in the car listening to the radio on the way to the store. She was so excited for him, lol.
There seemed to almost always be music playing in our house as I was growing up, including in my own room when I got old enough, lol. There was everything from classic country, to mowtown, Chuck Berry, to Barbara Streisand etc. I listen most all genres of music. I've come to really enjoy singing Blues, R&B and Jazz but I mostly love to sing songs that moves me in some way or another.
I'm here to have fun sharing the gift of music with others, enjoy the friends I've made here and hopefully improve my singing. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit my page. When you listen to my songs if you like what you hear tell me. If you don't, tell nobody! LOL
