The Listening Room of Mobile came alive last night. Every inch of space was filled with the sound of music. It was a first class, top-notch dueling of instruments beyond your imagination.

Leigh Nash (of Sixpence None the Richer) has obviously tended to her talent and developed one to the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. She has been on tour with her talent since she was...

Last night was unique in oh so many ways.

It was The Listening Room of Mobile. There was a nationally known artist appearing that has several songs that climbed all the rungs of the ladder and reached the top of the charts when they were released. 

Her name is Chely Wrig...

There he was, Reverend Justin Hylton on my computer screen. His picture brought me to The Listening Room last night. In the picture I saw a story. In his songs I heard a journey…I was intrigued.
