Bubblegum pop and Sound of Music?Julie Andrews. Cast album of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Osmonds. Marie... so that's how I became COOL?!?! Not--- Amy Grant won me over in late 80's.....more BIG HAIR but great and inspiring songs. Still my favorite.

Biggest was probably in Ars, France a few years ago. About 1,800 priests and bishops at an International retreat. Smallest...any time I advertise a gig by myself... about 10 to 25. Humility, humility, humility.....
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
