2017 Donna Sue ThumbPerforming for shows and dances. 
Classic Country, Blues, Big Band, Rock, 50 and 60's, Folk, Gospel.

I was raised by a single Mother and my love of music came early in life.  Mother worked as a waitress at a Honky Tonk and we heard many country bands as I grew up.  Mom also loved Gospel, Big-Band and Blues music.  My best audience was Grandma and I sang and danced to her for hours.  So, from knee high I was always was in my blood you could say. 

I started really learning about singing when I joined the choir at church and then in my high school years in the High School Choir.  Then marriage and children took over my life for many years and my singing was to small children and while driving my car, that was my new audience for many years.
