Recording information by TDCPATRON

Music: a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination & life to everything

Eight years ago I went through multiple back surgeries and a very evasive neck surgery. I was horrified to find that after the neck operation I had totally lost my soprano voice. I was deviated. About a year had passed, alone in my secret grief, a good friend on an art site directed me to SingSnap. My kids encouraged me to start singing once again. But I was so scared and was lost and alone in the dark, really, about just what I could ever do with this terrible singing voice I now possessed.
Then there was someone there for me. Someone who gave me hope to carry on. Someone who said, hey I love you. Someone who encouraged me and became my friend. This someone was Torchie ( Mike) very first real friend on SingSnap. The first person who told me to keep at it. The first person to dare duet with me. He gave me hope to carry on! He literally lit up my life ~ Filled my nights with song ~ and he still does to this day!
Now it's time for me to say "Hey, I love you" back! Not the kind of love between a husband and wife, but a deep, treasured Christian Love! This is my way to honor his friendship and belief in me, even when I was trying to find just what my voice was ~ so long ago ~ Seven years now!
Without his love and honesty, his encouragement and good heart, I never would have tried to sing another note! For that, I owe him all my love and I honor him with the dedication of this song!! You, my darling friend, Mike, TRULY LIGHT UP MY LIFE!!
TORCHIE & TDC'S First Duet together:

I can relate to you somewhat, about your voice

mine wasn't through surgery tho,

about 5 1/2 years ago we went to Captain D's

and I ate a hushpuppy and got strangled really bad & almost had to call 911

and ever since then, I have had so much yukkk going on with my throat

and I constantly have to cough to clear my throat

and my voice just seems like it wont ever be what it once was

and that's why I have gotten so discouraged about singing everyday

like I once did.

I have thought of leaving ss all together., but something keeps dragging me back here

thank you again for sharing this

hope you have a blessed week

I looove your song just really goes so well with your dedication! When I was reading your story, it brought a little tears to my eyes, because I could really feel with you. I was so happy to read that you continued singing, although your voice sounds different now. But you know what, no matter what voice you have, you can never loose the ability to sing straight from the heart, touching other hearts...and that´s exactly what you do! I think you sound fabolous! Loved your performance!!

Good evening m'dear,
As you know, I know the road you took with your surgeries as I took the exact same one, and darned if I am still not on it!!
I can hear the meaning you put to each and every word of this song, and your power is strong which lends strength of control to your singing. I think I have to hear this agai, because the story you paint with this song is so vivid. evokes the same feeling the second time!! I have really enjoyed my listens here with you this evening.

Please pray for us to find a home by Feb.

Hey, Sheri. You DO have red hair. LOL I wasn't sure after that Marilyn number.
Sorry to hear about you losing your voice. I know that must have been rough. I lost my voice for about a month last year (right before I sang We Shall Behold Him) and it tore me up. I'm just glad God was gracious enough to let me have it back. TYL!
I have enjoyed getting to know you in the PMs. You seem like a wonderful person and I am honored to know you.
This is a great dedication. LOTS of emotion in this one. I'm sure Mike is very happy when he listens to this one. WTG! MYDW!
