Inspiring and uplifting
Marco, Great Job I saw your 15 mintue video clip on youre music and you are truely talented and can tell the dedication you have put fourth in this project.. Each song has a theme and just captures the title pefectly.. The last song "waiting for you" hits home, great inspiration! I had to order.. Cant wait to get it and listen to it with my wife, kick back and open up a bottle.. Great job Marco...
