Lisa's Uplifting Song's Album

I feel incredibly blessed by the gift of song that so deeply penetrates my being and the tender moments I have felt in sharing this gift with all in my reach, whether performing on stage, engrossed in deep conversation on the phone, teaching or sharing the joy of singing with my students.  As Annie Oakley said, “Got no butler, got no maid, Still I think I’ve been over paid, I got the sun in the morning and the moon at night!” 

This album is a celebration of connections I have made over the years, sharing faith, peace, comfort, and joy with others. In collaboration with a very talented and versatile pianist, we plan to create the following feast from songs of the classical, musical theater and sacred repertoire:

-Songs I have enjoyed singing with my children:
“My Heavenly Father Loves me”
“I feel my Savior’s Love,” “I’m trying to be like Jesus”
“If the Savior stood beside me” 

-Songs that have given me insight into a deeper spiritual connecting:
“Take time to be Holy”
“Come Thou Fount”

 -Danish songs about nature that I sang growing up and that still tug at my heartstrings:
“Kun en dag, et øjeblik ad gangen” (Day by Day)
“Jeg bærer med smil min byrde” (I carry my load with a smile)
“Altid frejdig, når du går”  (Always Cheerful, as you journey through life)

 -Songs when together we have been carried on angels’ wings as I sang at celebration of life events:
“How Great Thou Art”
“O Divine Redeemer”

 -Songs that give me hope and that I just can’t stop singing once I start:
“You’ll Never Walk Alone”
“Cockeyed Optimist”
“I Got the Sun in the Morning”

-The final song is a wish for a blessing to all I hold so dear, near or far away; family and friends, colleagues, students, and audience members.
“May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You.”
