Cheryl's thoughts on "As Long As I Can Sing" -- a show about how the gift of singing and music are not only my joy and passion, but also very often a lifeline in times of difficulty. I feel that through music I will always be
able to find my joy no matter what sadness or hardship I may be experiencing and I believe this holds true for most everyone. There always seems to be an appropriate song for practically any situation and they provide the words when I
have none. They make us laugh. They make us cry. They speak of happiness, they speak of frustration, they speak of love... and they speak of grief, sharing our pain and ultimately helping us find our way out of those moments of darkness and back to our joy.
