My new project "CHILD'S HEART" – a extended play CD – is hot off the press and available now on my website! www.carolmanson.com
All of the tracks inspire the child within each of us! This R&B/jazz CD is a tribute to my late sister Celeste; a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the CD will go to Carrie’s Touch, a program that assists African American women who are breast cancer survivors. For more information about this worthy program contact: carriestouch.org.
Child’s Heart represents the child within each of us…innocence, pure joy, curiosity and unconditional love!
Back in the day Celeste was a lead singer in the band Elmer Lee Blues Review. In 1995 she recorded a duet “God Bless The Child” with Elmer Lee Thomas on their Radio Blues CD. With permission from Elmer Lee I am blessed beyond measure to use the track from that CD on this new project. I am singing with my sister in a duet! Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole style….how cool is that?!!!! I start the CD party with my own version of “With A Child’s Heart”. Then we really get down to business with “Grandma's Hands” - cool Grandma-style that is! The tune “Nature Boy” gives us all a simple lesson about love. “This Little Light of Mine” from my CD "All Is Well" reminds us we are all beams of light shining bright! Since releasing my hit single God’s Eye Is On The Sparrow in 2008, my gospel-inspired CD, ALL IS WELL has musical selections include gospel standards and popular classics with a contemporary sound such as Prayer for Protection, Our Thoughts Are Prayers, The Lord’s Prayer, and the 9th IMA VOX Award winning Take My Hand, Precious Lord. This enhanced CD also features a CD-ROM video.
