I got the music in me
Music has always be a constant in my life and I can’t remember when it hasn't been. As a child I would listen to my parent’s albums in the basement and sing along with the hit parade. Later, my siblings and I would perform shows for my parents, mostly Motown artists like the Supremes, Gladys Knight and the Pips and the Jackson Five. You should have seen some of our dance moves! Ha!
In the 1970’s I bought a record player and some 45's, in the 80's bought a boom box and cassettes. I remember looking forward to my weekly trips to the record store to check out the new releases. It was always exciting to dig through the bins and whether it was a classic tune or a new pop song, you could count on the fact that I’d be singing along to it. I guess it was pretty clear early on that music was going to be in important component of who I am and what I do. This old caricature says it all!
