MUSIC MONDAY ~ N.40

This music Monday, Viva la Dolce is excited to highlight an Italo-Canadian singer... ME!

In hopes of inspiring others in pursuing their passions, I decided to share my music with you all, as it is something very near and dear to my heart, and something that I have dedicated myself to my entire life.

As my mother tells me, I have been singing pretty much since I learned how to speak.  I remember as I little girl performing my favourite songs for friends and family; I would dress up Madonna style with white gloves and big bangle bracelets ready for my "show."  As I grew up, I performed in countless school productions and choirs, eventually writing and performing the graduation song for my class in high school.  Outside of school, I sang for a number of special events such as weddings, anniversaries, and national anthems, and continued to write my own songs.  Eventually, I was blessed with the most amazing experience - having a hit song on the radio!

The song, "Feel Alive," was considered a "summer hit," and landed on a dance album of the year.  It also led me to perform at a freestyle/dance concert being held by a local radio station, which was a lot of fun! It was truly an incredible experience, and one that I am so very thankful for.  I continued writing and performing, and was featured on a few more albums.  As I grew, so did my tastes in music and I began writing and performing music in different genres.  I got to work with so many wonderful and talented individuals, for which I am so thankful.

Over the years, I continued with my music, at times a little more and at times a little less.
However, it has always been there. When I worked in radio, my life was surrounded by music; while teaching language, I incorporate it into my lessons; when blogging, I highlight artists and new music.  No matter is going on in my life, I always feel a nudge to continue with my singing and love of music.

That's what passions do to us - they speak to us, they fuel us, they make us "feel alive."  It may not always be easy, but pursuing your passions is the greatest reward.  I hope you find the strength and courage to "take your passion and make it happen" in one form or another; do what makes you truly "FEEL ALIVE!"

Happy listening! :)
