Behind the Song: Magic of Santa

Now Streaming EVERYWHERE!

I set out to write a song about Santa and his magic. My coworker, Krystal, at the time told me that if I wrote a song called Santa’s Magic it sounded dirty. I was shocked, and appalled and immediately agreed. So later that day I came home from work and sat on my couch with my guitar. Within 30 minutes I had the song called, Magic of Santa. What may surprise you, is I wrote this song in 2017!!!! Why did it take 4 years to release it? Great question. I wanted to give this song justice and I wanted to have a studio recording of it, not my home computer and closet “studio” of my <$100 microphone.

So in 2019 I set out to become debt free! As of October 2021 – my only debt is my mortgage!!!! WOOHOO. All that money that I was using to pay off my debt, I was able to afford a studio recording with a professional engineer.

I love Santa and, yes I still believe!

Mother of 2 under 2


Wow!  It’s already April!?  I can barely believe it.  If you’ve been following me on social media you may be aware that I was pregnant with baby #2 . Well on March 19th I brought my second son into the world.  Life had been pretty crazy and chaotic but I’m slowly getting back to an order that will keep my music dreams afloat.


Stay tuned!

Goodbye Driving Around Karaoke


Here it is folks, a sad goodbye to Driving Around Karaoke.


I have performed Driving Around Karaoke since December 2013 that debuted with my cover of “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” and I have enjoyed it so much.  However, since 4 years ago so much in my life has happened and I am a changing woman.  I still sing in my car, but I find that I struggle the time to film, edit, post and schedule all the associated posts on social media.  I have a full time day job, a 16 month old toddler and I’m 7 months pregnant.  So as you can image my life is pretty full.

I can no longer put forth the time and energy into Driving Around Karaoke that it deserves.  For that, I am sorry.  However:

I will putting my focus into building my music skills and preparing for the recording of my Christmas Album which will be released this November 2018.  My Christmas album will have about 5-7 original Christmas songs that I’ve written and recorded with the help of some musicians and mixers.  I encourage you to sign up for mailing list for updates on the album AND – get a free song download today!

Driving Around Karaoke built my YouTube subscribers to over 100, which is amazing!  I hope to continue to provide content and keep everyone engaged!

Looking back through the years, My most popular Driving Around Karaoke video was, “Baby Got Back” closely followed by: “Rappers Delight” and “I Put a Spell on You“.  My most popular Genre Weeks were:  Michael Jackson Week, Fight Week , Rap Week and you can always visit my Halloween Songs and my Holiday Songs.

Thank you for always watching my videos and stay tuned for my original music!
