CD recording in Cebu

July 22nd to August 22nd, 2010

The MQHM (Mary Queen of Heaven Missionary) Sisters have invited me to join them in their first-ever CD recording – an album of inspiring new songs by fresh local composers in Cebu, Philippines, which will feature the Sisters’ Choir and me as soloist on some songs.

We first met last January 2010, coming together for the fund raiser concert at the Waterfront Hotel in Lahug, Cebu City, to benefit women and children victims of prostitution. Thank God the event was successful…with the help of many generous benefactors, we were able to raise significant funds to help the rebuilding of their (recently fire-damaged) Home of Love – a rehabilitation and training center for over 50 women and children on their road to recovery.

How nice to see and work with the ever-joyful, highly-spirited Sisters again, and with amazingly talented Filipino musicians in this venture. The Sisters hope to create more awareness and to spread hope and joy with the songs on their new album, as they continue their work. This will also be my first time doing a recording outside of Canada…looking forward with gusto!
