This CD delivers a special set of inspirational songs written to entertain listeners of all generations throughout the world. Vann describes her CD as "little musical messages" that are reminders of love, hope and tolerance.
"So many times without really realizing it, we take so much for granted or just simply forget,” Vann says. "Some of the songs have to do with my own personal challenges. Like anyone else, it's a constant battle to keep everything simple. I'm the first to admit that many times I've made life harder than it had to be."
Vann's song "Now" is the first cut on Messages, an ode to remembering the pleasures of life that make each moment of the day a joyous masterpiece. As Vann expresses in the lyrics to Now:
Yesterday is gone
Other songs on Messages include "Attention," a cautionary tale about the importance of communication, and the upbeat, danceable "Don't Forget," which points to self love as one of the greatest sources of love.
The singer-songwriter got her big break in the music industry from another singer-songwriter, Michael Bolton. A chance meeting with the r &b balladeer led to a featured duet with Bolton during his international tours.
The international new age keyboardist Yanni opened the musical door for Vann to achieve the historical milestone of performing at India's sacred monument. "Love Is All," Yanni's first-ever song with lyrics is a haunting love anthem featuring Vann's lead vocals on the multi-platinum selling album Tribute, and PBS special of the same name. Said one critic of Vann's performance: "Don't be fooled by the newest singers. Vann Johnson is a rarity!"
A native of Michigan now living in Los Angeles, Vann continues to write and explore new horizons as a solo artist. Vann keeps in touch with her legions of fans through her website: www.vannjohnson.com. "When I have difficult times I've drawn on the thoughts and prayers that my fans have shared. I'd like them to know that they, too, are one of my biggest sources of inspiration!
