May all praise be to my precious Lord, Jesus Christ, who has been my confidence and faithful from the beginning. His strong hand has upheld me through it all; without Him I am nothing. Thank you so much, Mom and Dad, for your unwavering support—from driving me to piano lessons to hosting countless band practices. I love you both. Pastor Kenny—As my second dad, I cannot express how thankful I am for your wisdom, encouragement and for following through with the vision God gave you for a youth band…you are so groovy. I am so grateful for my wonderful piano teacher, Melody Day and my choir teacher Mrs. Gibbons for drawing out my love for music. To every other individual who poured into me musically, thank you for believing in me and helping me to grow in the talents God has given me.
