So many generous souls in this world. I want to thank all of you that helped "Fire in the Rainstorm" in its creation. Those that donated items, and your time.. you really made an impression on me. There are no words in the spoken word to truly tell you what your generosity felt to me. Without you.. Fire in the Rainstorm would not be.
Now the work comes to marketing and promotion. LOTS of things to do. Videos, interviews, reviews, of course radio promotion.
A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
