6th CD Release
Near the end of my 11th Doctoral course for Business Marketing, I am closer to graduation than ever before. As I look back over the past two years, much progress has been made. I’m not situated in Atlanta, GA, where I live with my daughter, Mimi Johnson, CEO of www.mjtvnetwork.info, which has several shows in production. On May 21, I will co-host one of three shows in a series entitled Amazing Musicwomen with vocal musician Sandi Blair.
Meanwhile, we are calling for a Symposium on Women in Arts. Please LIKE this page at Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/symposiumonwomeninarts) and sign and share this petition: http://tinyurl.com/ks5byvs
On May 2, at the Ferst Center in Atlanta, GA, I will be named the first
Lady Jazz Master by Black Women in Jazz & Fine Arts Awards among other astute women in music.
Finally, we encourage everyone to nominate a woman musician/composer for the prestigious NEA Jazz Master Award for 2015. You can do this at http://arts.gov/honors/jazz

I have two wonderful children. My son just turned 50 this month. He sings well but only in the shower. When he was an infant until he was two, we listened to THE SOUND OF MUSIC every morning! He just loved it.
My daughter is 48 and has followed in my footsteps. She is a vocalist, songwriter, producer, actress, playwright, and WEB TV host.
Neither one of my children are introverts. They are really comedians and bring a lot of joy to those around them. When they were teenagers, I practiced piano and composed most of my songs, while they tended to my mother, who was incapacitated. They would be upstairs and I’d be in the living room, downstairs. You couldn’t hear a pin drop, most of the time. I think they enjoyed my playing. There was a lot of peace in our home.
Music, the sound of the spheres, begins in the womb!!!
