Personal Life

I was born and raised in Paris, Ky. My husband and I met at Butler University in Indianapolis. Because my husband was a college football coach, we moved around a bit but ended up back in Indianapolis where we both are now retired. My two daughters live in Denver and we love to visit them and their families.

  1. Hello my name is Karen Dorsey. I teach elementary music in Texas. I have purchased both the “Change In You” and “Change Is You”.
    I am unable to access the audio of either song. I was wondering if there is some way I can get a separate audio for those.
    Thank you in advance

  2. Hello my name is Cindy Moore and I am a teacher in Muskegon Michigan. I purchased the Change is You and I can’t download it. It keeps saying 502 Bad Gateway. Help!
