Songwriters showcases are invaluable for students and performers of all levels. As Dr. Robert Boury explains: â€śA song is not really finished until you send it out in the world to see what an audience thinks.â€ť

She currently lives in Asheville, North Carolina and Serves as the National Secretary over operations for Sigma Alpha Iota Music Fraternity for Women.
