Christian singer Genelle Tennant and I have been communicating for sometime now
and she is currently in the process of setting some of my poetry to music. She intends
to put several of my poems to song and place them on her upcoming C.D.s.
Genelle's beautiful voice is a cross between Christian singer "Christie Lane" and
legendary country singer "Pasty Cline." I have told Genelle many times that her
voice sounds just like that of an angel.
Genelle told me that she is highly selective about the poetry/songs she dedicates
to music and I was elated when she informed me that I had written the type of
material she was looking for.
SPECIAL NOTE: October 24th, 2008
Due to health issues, Genelle has been unable to continue with this project.
She hopes that her health will improve to a point that she will someday soon
complete this music/poetry venture.
THE FOLLOWING MATERIAL WAS TAKEN FROM GENELLE'S WEBSITE:
If you've never heard of Genelle .. you've surely heard of Leon McAuliffe,
steel guitar player with Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys. In his latter years,
Leon formed a band of his own and Genelle was invited to join the band
as one of the lead singers, and sang duets, solos, and back-up on Leon's last
album, titled "TAKE IT AWAY, LORD! .. with Leon and his All Christian Band"
Genelle was Nominated in 2003 Top 10 in the Following Categories:
Female Vocalist, New Female Vocalist, & Website of the Year
For The Artist Achievement Awards ~ CG Connection
Genelle's songs are gaining popularity among radio stations around the world.
In addition to placing #5 on a nationwide Christian Music Chart of 200 and #19
on a worldwide internet most played artist chart, Disc Jockeys are now playing
her songs on radio stations in Australia, New Zealand, U.K., Belgium, Africa,
Bulgaria, Scotland, Denmark, The Netherlands, Russia, France, Russia, and
Canada. She's recently been approached about a tour in Australia ... and
invited to sing and teach Bible Studies at Bible Training Centers in Bulgaria,
where a missions organization is ministering to and taking the Gospel
Message to Gypsies and Turks.
In addition, Genelle owns and maintains a personal web site and has used
several of my poems. Click the link below to view the newest page made with
one of my poems "Window of Yesterday." On this page, Genelle also makes
mention of the fact that she intends to use my poetry to set to music with her
newest C.D. coming out this year.
