Hi Kathyjo, just selected "Today" to listen to!
Voice like velvet with expression! The music rhythm and relaxed sound swept me along. Your lyrics I am delighted to see do not conform to the Industry VCVCBC! A great swing to the song! Should be on, "Ellen Dejeneres" show!
Delighted to accept you as friend here!
Would you like to suggest a song I must hear!

Than you for kind words and score on reviewing "Shelter In Your Lovin' Arms". Appreciated it!
