FIFTH STUDIO ALBUM
"MY KING IS COMING” is a combination of poetry, passion, and faith. I wrote the songs as a story unfolding before the listener capturing the very moment the decision was made to leave the past behind and step into the light.
Jesus, the savior of my soul, this one's all for you.
NEW Children's Bedtime Lullaby Book
I'm so excited to have my lullaby song now published in to this beautiful children's bedtime book!
This lyrical tale begins with Mary, the mother of God, singing a lullaby to her precious baby boy as she holds him close in her arms.
"Everything Must Change"
Bauer delivers again with Nina Simone tribute album
"The Bauer voice is a low, I guess it would be called a contralto, and her delivery is convincing; her conviction is strong. Her articulation is true, and when she bends the "pity" in "Isn't it a Pity," you feel it, and then she builds a fabulous climax as well-twice-and then backs off for the close."
