“The largest reason that I continue to deliver my gift of music is to touch HEARTS and LIVES in a profound way. It is always my intention that the words from the songs that I write, and sing – either my own or another songwriter’s masterpieces – and the vibration of my voice strike a chord in you, so that it can change that moment, your day, or even your life because of that vibration. It is my intention to “serve” in this way. May the songs that you hear in a live performance or in my recordings make a difference for you. Thank you for allowing me such a bless-ed opportunity!”
Neale Donald Walsch, author and friend says about her: “The joy, the love, the gentle wisdom, and the deep insight that Cathy and her music bring to the space produces the miracle called Healing. There is no “thank you” large enough to embrace the enormity of that gift. I’m always humbled and inspired by her.
