The voices behind the Concert/Benefit

I am so excited. I just sent my concert evite to everyone in my email address book. If you are in the Vallejo area, I would love for you to support not only myself, but the rest of the guest singers/musicians participating. Here is the official flyer:

This is the official flyer of the Let Their Voice Be Heard concert!

You can also go to my “Visions Alchemy Visionary Events. I mentioned this in an earlier post, but this is a dream of mine for 10+ years. It is finally manifesting. Part of the concert will have a presentation given by Rita from Loma Vista Farm to educate the community with all the wonderful things Loma Vista Farm has to offer. And because I am so grateful for my brother, Gabe and fellow musicians/singers, Ed Rosenback, Lee Wingfield and his son, Jim Wingfield. I wanted to give you some information on the caliber of talent that is sharing the stage with me:

Ed Rosenback-I have known Ed since 1997 when I started going to the church. He is truly an inspirational  and dynamic singer.  Not only is he a gifted singer, he is an equally talented songwriter and wordsmith. I’m excited to have him as part of the lineup.
 A professional musician since 1963, Ed has performed in a variety of styles and venues with groups in Northern California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Louisiana, with featured performances in Nashville and Las Vegas. He has recorded prolifically, is a Life Member of the Musicians Union, and holds a B.A. degree in Music History, Theory & Composition from San Fransicco State University, an Honorary Doctorate in Metaphysics from the Universal Life Monastery in Seattle, Washington, and was ordained as a Minister of Divine Science by the Dean of the United Divine Science Theological Seminary in 2011. Ed is a veteran performer and singer-songwriter, and is pleased to lend his talents to this most worthy cause.
 
Lee Wingfield-I met Lee when I came to the church and for 3 years we worked together (along with his son Jim ) as the music ministry. Because Lee and my vocal ranges were exactly an octave a part, we created some rich harmonies in our Sunday service arrangements. When I took a sabbatical from the church, he continued to flourish as the music director. 
Lee is the current Music Director for the SOM Church in Vallejo and has been involved in the music program here for about 16 years. He is the author of approximately 35 new thought songs. Also as a satirical literary writer, Lee won the Vallejo Arts Councils writer of the year award in 1998

Jim Wngfield-Jim ia also a talented singer and prolifiic songwriter. He is the kind of musician that can improvise and add musical color to any style of music you  can think of,  when  you come to the concert you will experience this first hand. He along with Ed and Lee are part of the “Free Spirits” music group that plays every Sunday at the Church. There will more to information to follow. He is such a busy musician. I will sit down with him so he can fill me in with his upcoming and current music projects.

Gabriel De Los Santos- Gabriel is my younger brother, but there are times I forget. His very rich and soulful voice will engulf you in his songwriting creations and in the arrangement of Amazing Grace he will sing with me.

If you are not in the area, please let your family and friends who are in the area to help support this wonderful event.
