Executive Order

 

With all the hate and insanity that has been going on since #45 took office, we need more love. Executive order is

a song based on all the things that trump has done since his campaign to present. You can't cure hate with hate. Insanity with insanity. We need to get along on both sides of the faction. No more war! No more prejudice!  we wantPeace, love and and coherence.

Trixie

 

Trixie is such a precious cat. She is 17yrs. old now. Brought her to the veterinarian  last week and they did all the usual tests. Blood work, x-rays, etc. The doctor said she was dehydrated and had a hyper active thyroid. Fluid  all around her organs. She put her on medication that I squirted into her mouth. She hated it. She felt sick and wouldn't eat for 2 days. So I stopped the meds. But now with lots of petting, having her by the wood burning stove and fresh water. she seems to have her appetite back. Also gave her some fresh cat nip that she loved.But she is still weak. I  put my song "Don't Give Up The Hope" on the audio player above at the top of the page in  green in honor of Trixie. Please enjoy it. If you want to download any songs you can find it in the store. Look at my latest CD "The Curve of Darkness"

Thanks!

And pray for Trixie!

This could be her last week on this planet.

God Bless you all! Life is precious!

Sunny

RIP- Trixie passed away 12-3-12. She had a beautiful life. We were very close. I miss her always.  Love you Trixie my baby girl!

 

People ask me my diet, how I keep my figure

 

I put lots of love into my body. I watch everything I eat. Only something that feels really good. I never cheat. I am pathetic. I am so disciplined and it's a way of life for me. I love my body, the way it looks when I put on clothes and I want to keep it that way! I love to bake organic health cookies, chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin but I never eat any.

Review of Metro Jazz @ The Metropolitan Room

 

By: Edie Stokes

What a truly unique show I saw at theMetropolitan Room recently called Metro-Jazz with Sunny Leigh. It stood out from other cabaret shows, as it was an interesting combination of older standard jazz tunes and new, original pieces by the songwriting duo of Barry Levitt and Sunny Leigh.

 

 

The Bitter End

 

The Bitter End Gig June 6th with my band was very cool. I started out stalking the stage

Waiting for the sound guy to get ready and tech me in.We had a wonderful crowd. Legendary Chris Parker played the drums like a magic trick

About some of the songs on Sweet Feelings CD

 

Commitment

It seems to me that some men do not want to commit to a relationship. They don’t realize that being in a relationship could add deeper meaning to their lives.

Positive attitude

Life is difficult. You choose how you want to live your life. I choose to live my life with a positive attitude

Hold Back

Sometimes you feel and have a sense that something’s changed in a relationship and they’re not the same.

Slippin Away

You want to know where that person is emotionally. 

Can I Love you?

There’s and old saying. while the grass appears to be greener, it can leave a bitter taste in your mouth.This can be a problem is you apply it to a relationship 

Feeling the Pain

There’s only one thing that is guaranteed to destroy any relationship Lies.


 

About Sweet Feelings CD

 

My songs are honest, open and realistic. Sometimes the subject matter is tough. But sometimes life is tough. I like to send people a message of hope. You must always keep on trying. You must persevere. You may not get everything you want and things may not happen the way you thought they would but, if you try and give it all you have, something will happen. If you do nothing that’s exactly what you will get I believe that love is the most powerful force in the universe. It can change the way you feel, can bring you joy and happiness. It can change your whole outlook on life. The music is dance, hip hop, R and B and funk.
