The last few days have been a whirlwind.
Last week would have been a great week by any standard - great rehearsals, great performances, great teaching - but then Thursday night happened...
Thursday night, we found out that a writer had given Gerald's name to the head of a record label in New York City.
By yesterday afternoon, plans were in place for us to record song demos this week and fly to NYC next week to pitch songs to this label.
This particular label has a wide range of artists covering the genres of Country, Pop, R&B, Rock, and Gospel. For a multi-faceted writer like Gerald, this meeting could open a lot of doors.
Since the label represents Gospel, they've also asked to hear my music.
So, this week, we're in the studio. Gerald will record 6 of his original songs, and I'll sing harmonies. Next week, we'll fly to NYC, meet with this gentleman, play some songs live, and leave the demos and a copy of "Real Big Fan."
If you're the praying kind, please throw one out for us this week...
Please pray for us as we prepare for and travel to this meeting.
Please pray that we represent ourselves well.
Please pray that we get extra work to cover the financial aspect of the trip.
Off to look for discount Broadway tickets...
