GRAMMY Advocacy - GRAMMY In My District.

So today I had the opportunity to meet with 5 musicians all working to have the CopyRight Laws updated, and a few other laws updated to help all musicians struggling to make a living AND to continue to create music. We met Rep. Mimi Walters and had a GREAT meeting with her.  She knew the issues, and Christopher Tin as well as Mindi Abair had many good things to say about what we are working towards. Hopefully she will work on our behalf and get these laws updated for the times we are in.  Thank you for taking the time Rep. Walters for meeting with us!

Also, Christopher Tin is a hard working fellow, he spearheaded the meeting, and I know he had other meetings to attend today.

Thank you for your support!

Kori Carothers

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
