I have this friend….and she’s on #TheVOICE


I have this friend.

Her name? Katelyn Read.

Why am I sharing this?

Because she auditioned for The Voice and I am proud of her!

Music has always been an inspiration to me…a language of the heart..

An explosive expression of the soul with invisible words…spoken to all who will listen.

There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t listen to some type of music.

Today, I want to share with you a few music links of Katelyn Read , whom I’ve known for many years. In fact, I can say..”I knew her when…” because I provided child care for her when she was just a little girl.  Katelyn is a remarkable mother, wife, and artist with an amazing God-given talent. I  feel Katelyn is not just an up-and-coming artist but one who has already arrived. Her blends of folk, blues and soul seem to speak to the soul.

Music is therapy….It taps into our emotions and memories.

Katelyn quoted on her Facebook page… “So! Here is everything you need to know about The Voice premiere tonight! It starts at 8/7c on NBC and is two hours long this evening. The show is TWO nights a week- Monday and Tuesday, and there are at least two weeks of blind auditions (and we don’t know which one I am on, so just keep tuning in if you don’t see me this week!). Some auditions will be shown in their full length with some background and interviews about the artist, and some will be montaged into short clips just showing a few seconds of singing and whose team they made. (Let’s hope I’m not montaged!! 😬) Lastly, you’re going to LOVE it! If you’ve never watched the show before, I promise it will be fun. Thank you all SO VERY MUCH for your generous love and support! I’ll be watching right along with you tonight. 🙂 “

If you haven’t had your daily dose of music today,  please take a few minutes and enjoy the music of Katelyn Read. 

Be sure to  tune in to support my friend, Katelyn.
