Why Open Call?

I love to sing and enjoy learning more about singing and performing. I benefited greatly from my 2018 Open Call experience. I am chairman and treasurer for Vela Youth Fund, a small 501c3 charity to help children. Part time singing in the desert has helped me raise funds for that charity. Winning Open Call would help toward fundraising and promotion toward other performance opportunities.



God's gift of song is enough inspiration. However, I'm also inspired by family and friends, and have learned a lot from my wife Sandra who has a musical background, and my daughter Emily, who has a Masters in musical theater and has worked on Broadway.



Sing for life.
