September 11 Reflecting on the past.

I vividly remember the morning of September 11.  I was driving to work at an elementary school in Fort Collins, Colorado when I heard the news on the radio about what was happening on the East Coast.  I walked into school with shock in my heart.  Grieved for so many.  Processed things with the students as well as we could over many months.

As the Fall went by, the 6th grade students that were creating original compositions to record in the studio, asked me if I would write a memorial song.  I called my friend, David Delo, who has a magical way with words and asked him to partner with me on the composition.  I can still remember one of my students doing a solo dance as this song played at their final music program of the year.  What a beautiful memory.  Thank you Annalisse!

Please download the song for free and let the spirits within you move and remember.

We will never forget you.

Heather Stenner has a passion for life! Her passions play out with music and children of all ages. Heather grew up in the Midwest and realized the importance of each day from a very young age. Her mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor when Heather was only 5. The doctors gave her mother 6 months to live. It was during the next 15 years that Heather developed her charismatic and joyful course for her own life! Her mother showed her strength and courage and an intense compassion for others and their suffering. Her mother passed away when Heather was 20 years old. Heather vowed she would continue to live each day as if it were her last. To treat people with compassion and believe in the love we all share for one another. At the age of 37, she became an orphan. Her father passed away from pancreatic cancer. Through it all, Heather realized that MUSIC was one of her coping mechanisms to deal with all the stress that cancer brought into their families lives. She vowed to share her love of music with children, so that it might also be a positive force in their lives! To this day, Heather creates music that has soul and passion. She hopes everyone will remember with the dawning of each day; we are all musical. Feel it in your soul. Keep it to yourself... or give it away.
