LIFE IS “BEAUTIFUL”
Working with Abby Mueller has been AMAZING! Abby who played Carole King in Broadway’s musical “Beautiful” sang the song I wrote in collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association’s ‘GAP’ Group entitled “Life is Beautiful”. The song is based on the life experiences, generously shared by those recently diagnosed with early onset dementia.
