Charity Ann

Sink into an eclectic array of soulful ballads and spoken-word.
My name is Charity Ann and I am an original singer-songwriter. The album featured here on CD Baby is one of great importance to me. This work chronicles a time of great upheaval in my life and a stubborn dedication to my craft.
I wrote most of these songs while surviving through crisis. Music was my saving grace.
I later discovered that my music brought a healing frequency with it when writing songs like, "Linda Jean". Linda also survived a major crisis years ago from a brain-aneurysm that landed her in a coma for 28 days. When she awoke from the coma she was in a catatonic state. Her husband, James was told to put her away in a home and forget about her but he refused. They then began the journey of fighting for her mind. During one of my performances, Linda began sobbing uncontrollably.. it was so loud I had to stop playing. When the music stopped, a woman standing next to her picked up the piece of paper Linda had been writing on and read it aloud.
It simply said, "Thank you, thank you for healing me." In Linda's words she stated, " When I listen to your music my symptoms dissapear." As she put it, " my symptoms went away" .."my short term memory loss, my dementia.. "
That's when I knew I had to keep doing music because it was neurologically healing. As fate would have it, Linda would turn out to be my healer as well. She has kept me faithfully pursuing music because of her shining example. This is truly a gift that transforms.
I'm so grateful for such a fulfilling life.
