It was a Thursday on a gorgeous sunny Vancouver afternoon. With a view of the ocean at my friend Rosemary’s place, I got to sing with the most beautiful sound I’ve ever been a part of live on a Spring afternoon! Roy and Rosemary are multitalented in their own right. They have just released their new album ” Once Upon a Dream “, they are fresh off their tour with pop opera group Destino, and are moving forward in their music careers like never before.
Their music is nothing short of captivating. Their hearts and their passion for life and their craft even more so. Roy plays the piano and can sing a boys 2 men R&B vocal like nobody’s business, and Rosemary’s violin is so moving that every time she plays she could bring me to tears.
And here I was, just in awe of them, winging a version of “His eye is on the sparrow” with them. It was a passionate moment, powerful even. We then played “Soldier” It’s still one of my favourites. Roy learnt it in all of 2 mins and was pretty much bang on. Rosemary picked it up in less time than that, and I all of a sudden heard a dream come true that day. Roy, Rosemary, violin, piano, and myself on an original. Stacy and the kids joined us at the end, and we played them Soldier. Best part, I saw it was bringing Stace to tears. Not sure why. Could have been R&R’s amazing dynamic, could have been the song, or allergies even (haha) but whatever it was, it was magical in the room that day.
I was blessed. I believe it’s the start of a journey. I don’t know what it looks like, but it seems pretty great! I’m just in an unbelivable journey and I’m experiencing heaven shine in on.
