HOLD ON TO YOUR DREAMS
MUSIC MAY BE WRITTEN IN BLACK AND WHITE
BUT IT REACHES THE SOUL IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT
A native of Bristow Oklahoma, had a natural affinity for music at a very young age. By the time Carmen was four(4), she was taught by her mother to sing gospel music in a gospel quartet with her three(3) brothers. As she grew, Carmen moved on to solos in her church choir and participated in many community and school music programs from the sixth grade through her senior year in high school. It was at the age of 14, when Carmen was introduced to jazz. Jazz touched the depths of her soul, and she was drawn into exploring Jazz music. Carmen continued studying music and working. In these efforts Carmen became a lead singer in a number of productions in local and regional theater productions. With this experience Carmen also started co-writing lyrics and arrangements. Writing brought out gifts she never knew existed. She had taken the initiative to expand her knowledge in vocal music and music theory at the university level. As Carmen performed on various public stages and venues along the way, she continued to develop her gifts as a percussionist and pianists. Carmen regularly share her gifts and talents in the church. Now years later, Carmen was introduced to a phenomenally gifted team to help bring this first project to completion. Carmen believes, she’s blessed to finally have this opportunity to share her gifts with the world. “I’ve held on to my dream knowing this would one day come to fruition”.
