Katie is completing a triple major of English, Writing, and Music. She has a rich soprano voice and every year she uses her talent to create a one-of-a-kind CD for her mother. Katie said, "my mama puts my CDs in the player in the kitchen because it is piped out to the rest of the house." "My mama says when she walks from room to room hearing me singing it's like I'm really there with her." I asked her what she sang for the recording - she said it was "just a mix of things I like to sing - and some of my recital music too." What a fabulous 'kid'!
Knowing that vocal majors NEVER walk anywhere without singing I could imagine this student's mother working on some project with Katie's voice wafting throughout the house- and understood how that would make her feel like her daughter was just down the hall. I love listening to 'my kids' tell me stories from home!
