“Stay With Me Baby "Some music is meant to be listened to with the volume down, a nice glass of wine and a slow burning fire. This is not one of those songs. crank your stereo up and start a roaring fire in the pit in your backyard. Invite the neighbors over, stop cars going down your street and invite total strangers. They'll all thank you when they hear this song!"”

She has graced the covers of countless magazines and it wasn't until I came across her in an ArtChix Magazine issue did I hear her for the first time. My God, I couldn't believe I had been missing out on the "Mashonee Miracle"...her voice. The Voice of a Goddess. She was named ArtChix Magazine's 2011 Artist of the Year and being a fan of all Music, I just had to know what all the rave was about. I became an instant fan."
