Annette’s new CD, Paradox Of Life, will be released February 19, 2008 through RED/Sony Distribution. The kick off for this solid uplifting and inspirational CD takes place in conjunction with Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Florida (BBBS) and Borders Books & Music Café. Annette has spearheaded this wonderful and first-of-its-kind event to benefit the local BBBS chapter. Sony/BMG's RED Distribution issued an Instant Release of Paradox Of Life available September 13th exclusively at Borders. Annette will perform selections from Paradox Of Life at three of the Borders stores in and around Fort Lauderdale September 15 & 16. The tour will proceed to Chicago in November, followed by Detroit and Boston.

This spring Annette penned the lyrics for a song inspired by a friend who is a lymphoma survivor. Annette performed the song – Getting Closer – at the annual Lymphomathon in Belleville, Michigan, which raised over $43,000. Her vision is to bring this song of hope and encouragement to others at Lymphomathons throughout the US.

Annette reflects: "Listening to uplifting and positive messages helps us in the midst of all the negativity in our world...and I believe that surrounding ourselves with uplifting and spiritually enlightening music can promote positive energy and provide us with the strength that we need in our daily lives."

Annette most certainly practices what she preaches with her new CD Paradox Of Life, as well as her current release, Growing Into Myself. On the label inspired RECORDS®, Growing Into Myself was released on February 21, 2006. Annette wrote the lyrics for several of the songs. The single "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You", written by Bryan Adams, was released to radio on May 2, 2005 and charted at #9 on the FMQB AC Top 40 Chart. Annette’s radio promotion team carried the momentum and released “Everything” to R&R mainstream AC radio on September 19, 2005 where it landed on the New & Active list. “Everything” then impacted Smooth Jazz radio last Fall and another single from the CD, “Ask”, was promoted to Christian Inspirational radio this past January (2006).

Annette’s radio promotion team strategically released her compelling cover of a Stevie Wonder creation – “Heaven Is 10 Zillion Light Years Away”. This song sped out of the gate this April, reaching #11 on the FMQB AC Top 40 Chart, and more airplay on Smooth Jazz stations nationwide.

An Italian immigrant born in a small town in the region of Calabria, Annette comes from a large musical family and has childhood memories of her father playing the mandolin and accordion. Some of her siblings are accomplished musicians. Annette’s melodious upbringing led to her involvement in a rich variety of professional musical groups and theatrical productions, including performing with The Kids From Wisconsin Ensemble. She was lead vocalist for a Jazz and Pop band that toured the Midwest. Annette has also enjoyed performing as a background vocalist for well-known regional entertainers.

Annette’s career took hold in 1993 with the recording of her debut album A Love Like Ours. A second album All The Way To Crazy, inspired RECORDS® release of a third CD deeper has seen Annette’s music continue to evolve into a beautiful, inspirational sound.

Annette’s music career is marked by her dedicated involvement with causes like Feed The Children, The University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and The Possible Dream Foundation and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA). Annette hopes that their 100-year milestone was just the beginning of a national campaign to encourage more adults to lend their time and talent mentoring a child in need of friendship and guidance. In honor of their 2004 Centennial kick off in New York, Annette performed at Chelsea Piers and Bryant Park.

Annette asked inspired RECORDS® to sponsor a 3 song CD, called I Believe, allowing the organization to sell and keep 100% of the proceeds. Annette has also performed for local BBBS chapters including the annual Dinner & Auction Gala at Mar-A-Lago to benefit the BBBS Palm Beach chapter.

Look for Annette’s Christmas CD featuring original tunes, scheduled for the 2008 Holiday Season!
