Biography

From fighting for our Freedom to transporting our goods all across this Nation. I have sang at; Veterans & Patriotic Events including being an opening act for Aaron Tippin, have appeared on local television and radio stations. I love to travel singing &/or speaking at VA Hospitals, Churches, Truck Stops and other organizational events for non-profits. I give away 8x10 poems that I created specifically for our Military. I also have CD's, T-shirts and other items for sale. I have a very professional appearance and products. There is no certain limit as far as, where I will go. And the message that I send is simple.. I want to let our Military, Veterans & Truckers know; they are appreciated and loved for all they are doing for this country. And, I Pray everyone has Jesus in they're life and know what he has done for us.. God Bless You ALL!

Lyrics

Bring 'em Home

Written By: Joy Hawkins

I lie awake at night staring at these walls
Praying for our soldiers, our soldiers who are gone
I wander what they’re going through and where they are right now
Praying they can feel our love and feel our prayers

God give them peace in their minds every time they close their eyes
Let them feel the Love that flows
Set them up on a mountain and keep their spirits shouting
Lord keep ‘em’ safe and bring ‘em’ home

No matter where they may go Lord let them feel you there
Be the calmness in every single storm they have
No matter what happens every time that they lie down
Wrap your arms around them
Keep them safe and sound

God give them peace in their minds every time they close their eyes
Let them feel the Love that flows
Set them up on a mountain and keep their spirits shouting
Lord keep ‘em’ safe and bring ‘em’ home

I know their minds are racing fast
At times they’re not sure what to do
But I know in our hearts God
We’re all counting on you

Give them peace in their minds
Let them feel the love that flows
Keep em’ safe and bring em’ home
God bring em’ back
Bring our Soldier’s home

Livin In The Promise Land

Written By: Willie Nelson

Give us your tired and weak and we will make them strong
Bring us your foreign songs and we will sing along
Leave us your broken dreams we’ll give them time to mend
There’s still a lot of love livin in the promise land

CHORUS:
Livin in the promise land
Our dreams are made of steal
Prayer of every man
Is to know how freedom feels
There’s a winding road across the shiftin sand
And room for everyone
Livin in the promise land

So they came from the distant isle
Nameless woman faceless child
Like a bad dream
Until there was no road at all
No place to run and no place to fall

Give us your daily bread we have no shoes wear
No place to call our own
Only this cross to bear
We are the mutitude
Lend us a helping hand

Livin in the promise land

CHORUS:

And room for everyone
Livin in the promise land

In My Daughter's Eyes

Written By: Martina McBride

In my daughters eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see she was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be in my daughters eyes

In my daughters eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the world is at peace
This miracle god gave to me gives me strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe in my daughters eyes

When she wraps her hand around my finger
Hoh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about
It’s hangin on when your heart has had enough
It’s giving more when you feel like givin up
I’ve seen the light its in my daughters eyes

In my daughters eyes
I can see the future
A reflection of
Who I am and what will be
And though she’ll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I’m gone I hope you’ll see
How happy she made me for
I’ll be there in my daughters eyes

Discography

I have had radio airplay with some of my originals. 1. Bring 'em Home, 2. From The USA, 3. Our Soldiers, 4. Daddy and
5. I Promise just to name a few.

Set List

I can sing as little as 2-3 songs. This is typical as an opening act and I always include my original military song titled "Bring 'em Home". Or I can sing as long as 2-3 hours at a time. This would include either Country or Christian Music or a Combination of Both.. Usually I sing both starting with country and ending with Christian unless I am singing in Church, in which case I strictly sing Gospel.
