Some of you know that I love music. I cannot remember a time when I didn’t enjoy singing. From an early age my mother played great music on the stereo, or tuned in to WFMT Classical Radio in Chicago.

Besides that, we had music at church. I remember singing the great hymns of the Christian faith, and also the little kids’ songs we learned in Sunday school.
