It’s been too long again! Shame on me!
I pray you are all hopeful about the new year, feeling healthy and happy!
***** Original Music: This weekend- Sunday evening January 13th at 8 pm I go on as the featured artist at the open mic night at the Parish Arts Center in Westford! Please come sing a song and hang out to listen! the open mic starts at 6:30pm.
The address is: 10 Lincoln St, Westford, MA 01886
*****WORSHIP: ALSO This Sunday Morning Ralph and I will be playing with the praise band at the Butler Middler School
1140 Gorham St, Lowell at 10 am with the Northwest Mission Center Praise band! The band plays about once a month; but I sing with the praise team most Sundays. The worship is heart-felt and usually very powerful. There are lots of gifted singers pouring themselves out, but even more remarkable is that with the entire congregation singing out it feels like you are in the middle of a very huge choir! Quite thrilling even just from a musical standpoint! Add the spiritual power and it can be VERY MOVING! And that is just the worship… the messages are always very real and practical and deep and full of God’s Word. Please join us some Sunday morning!

About the Harmony Jewels, though we are known for Christmas music we would love to sing for other events. We sing many spirituals/ hymns/ worship songs etc that would be great for a funeral or wedding as well as patriotic songs for a Veterans or Independence Day celebration.
It has been an amazing learning experience working there and also very rewarding! I feel it is a new ministry for me – bringing a new means of expression, new experiences and hopefully joy to these troubled kids. I am so grateful for the position and feel appreciated and needed there.
*****My Private Voice and Guitar Studio is still going strong. Most recently we did a show for a local nursing home for Christmas. This winter I am bringing a talented voice student of mine, Jessica to compete in the NATS vocal competition, too!
*****Played numerous solo and duo (with Johnny V on lead guitar or with Ralph) shows in 2018… One of my favorites was the Christian Arts Festival at Calvary Chapel in Chelmsford! Hope to do that again! That was super cool since not only was I singing, but my daughter Hannah was presenting her artwork, too!
– I have also found I really enjoy singing for funerals; Is that strange? I guess there are two reasons… 1. I get to sing beautiful classic hymns as a soloist and 2. I have an opportunity to bring real comfort to hurting people with those songs.
*****Moon Glow and Julie Jazz didn’t play too much in 2018- hope to do more jazz in 2020… Ahh yes Goals for the new year!
Goals For 2020:
- To open Kinscheck Productions Studio for business!
- To Record a new Jazz Album!
- To publish/ Release my Vocal Training for Praise Singers Curriculum as a book with accompanying CD/ down-loadable vocal exercises
You can get the first version of the warm up CD for free right now at my website: www.Julieksings.com/store and view in store to scroll to Vocal Warm UPs For Praise Singers CD.
OK- Time to go to bed and tomorrow hopefully buy a car- YEP- crashed my van of 8 years. Ug! But hey, I get a new car (Ok- new for me- likely pre-owned!) in 2020!
