Readers and Journey family...I found this HAPPY note on a comment just received so decided it goes here on top.
Dear friends, The Competition is OVER!!!!!!! "Marietta's Song" won it fair and square. It is now headed for the Songcat "Wall of Fame". Listening to "Marietta's Song" via this link is the best possible way to access the song, the lyrics, and the artist's information: http://www.musicxray.com/xrays/101715?afid=44b7ec100625012e867712313b120559 or CLICK here
Perhaps Xanthe has heard from Marietta by now? If not, I will try to arrange a connection soon (unless Bill or Gilles do so before I get the chance.) What a nice connection that will be...what a gift.
CONGRATS dear XANTHE!!! What talent - what heart!
Xanthe has yet to hear from Marietta about the song, but sincerely hopes she accepts her song-gift in the spirit of lovingkindness it was written. Broken Dreams, Xanthe says to tell you that it was for YOU as well, people who really GET IT, that her songs are written. Thank you for your honest and heartfelt response. Kind wishes, Music Central Recording Studio

“The following just came in on a recent comment from a songwriter inspired by our dear Marietta!
Dear Marietta, Hi. I'm an award-winning songwriter. I saw you on Oprah years back, and your story of forgiveness and compassion moved me to tears. It also moved me to write you a song. It's called "Marietta's Song" and it is a gift for you. I wrote to Oprah trying to find you so that I could offer you this song in recognition of your inspiring acts and your amazing depth of soul. Oprah never wrote back. Music Xray, the internet's biggest A&R website liked the song so much they recently entered it into a song contest. The song I wrote for you has won TEN DAYS STRAIGHT, which is very rare, and I believe it now qualifies for the Songcat Wall of Fame. I dearly want you to hear the song that you inspired, Marietta. If you want to, please go to http://song.cat (GO here Click on "Marietta's Song" and please accept my humble offering to you.
Kindest regards, Xanthe Littlemore firstname.lastname@example.org

Soon I hope to find out more about this award-winning songwriter and post more. Anyone heard "Marietta's Song" yet? I'm sure happy to discover this comment in my rush to get back to a family birthday...because IF I were a songwriter, I'd certainly have been inspired to write one based on Marietta's life, story and soul as well!
Thanx so much for posting and I will try to let everyone at the Journey of Hope know right away dear Xanthe Littlemore.
Congrats to MARIETTA as well for continuing to inspire with her obedience to LOVE.
Love and Prayers Xanthe for a long, fruitful songwriting career.
Connie for all the "Journey of Hope" family
