New Radio single My Baby's Love (Jessie's Song) released on CRS 189 

"A dark night of the soul" indeed! A burst appendix in 2009 put me in hospital for a lengthy stretch of time and many more months in recovery. My trusty trannie radio kept me sane through the seemingly endless nights. My daughter Jess is the music minister at her church in Melbourne, and had just released her new single to radio.

What are the chances of her uplifting gospel being played on the radio that very night? Divine Intervention me thinks. I'm forever thankful that she sang me back from the brink, gave me new hope and this beautiful song - My Baby's Love (Jessie's Song).

Released to national  country radio on CRS 189, track 10. www.crspublicity.com.au Check out the song, the 9th single from River Valley Dreaming on the Media page.
