I had such a nice time dressing up like a Princess and having Tea with these Mommy's Grandmama's ...and daughters! :) So super fun to entertain in this way! I feel as if I got a taste of what it must be like to work at Disneyland and be a princess. These girls were just absolutely stunned and star struck, they LOVED the "singing princess" Rachel Sparrow. .... "My friend Cinderella let me borrow this dress and said that I could sing a few of her songs for you!" All the happy feelings! Thanks to the brilliant Andrew Blendermann on the keys again!
"Becoming a mother changed me. I have more love, passion, and fulfillment in life; which in turn, enriches my artistry. Please join me in normalizing motherhood within the performing artist's culture."

"Think Outside Your Box" means 3 things:
1. Be Selfless - think beyond your own "box". (and for singers, there's more to life than your voice box!) You're capable of helping and healing others.
2. Feel Empowered to bust out of the proverbial
"box" made of societally-induced-parameters.
3. Be Bold. Innovate. Stretch yourself. You can do anything if you set your mind to it.
