Spent time yesterday in the recording studio with Scott Ferguson,working on my tribute song for Rita McNeil called “STAY STRONG”
I wrote ‘Stay Strong’ the day of the funeral at Big Pond, April 17th of last year.
Recording the piano tracks went fine but when I went to sing the lyrics I just became too emotional to finish the recording. (Scott and I rescheduled to record the vocal tracks another day.)
I was so inspired by Rita’s journey – her determination to pursue her music career ”against all odds”
It seems that Rita’s story is MY story,too!
I left western Canada in 2009,to follow my dream – performing and recording original Nova-Scotia inspired songs ……staying strong amidst all the stresses and challenges living so far from friends and familiarity.
