‘Lo, I am with you alway’
God's guidance in my musical career has felt evident ever since I was growing up. The Bible and music were very important in my home. Solos in church and school were fun. As my talent developed, larger opportunities arrived, and I thanked God for strength and confidence.
After college graduation a number of years ago, I was accepted to a very prestigious, tuition-free music institute, where I met a singing coach who became my mentor and who encouraged me to audition abroad in various opera houses. I prayed for guidance and courage to travel alone. Initially performances and teaching in public schools provided funds. I then found myself in a large city in Europe, with a two-year contract in a major opera house, which expanded to five years.
