“Soul Sounds is a big part of my life and I am thankful to be a member of it. The best thing about Soul Sounds for me is the beautiful music we make together. Each song carries a special memory and I love to relive them when we sing. I have met some amazing people and some of my best friends through Soul Sounds and each one have inspired me in different ways.”
