The Sacred

Diva of the Day Andrea

As a precursor to the coming Winter Solstice and Holiday season thought reflecting on what is sacred is exactly what we all should do.

This show will highlight the music of the following artists

Claudia Acuna

Patty Reese


Please check out these sistahs websites and support them. Music evolution must continue!!!!

Also in studio will be a couple special guests, listen in to see who they are and what they have to add to our chalice of sacredness.

Below is the proposed playlist, this is a start, not an ending, will edit after the show to designate the order it was played in. Speak with ya soon--Andrea
