"Dear Andelle Family & Friend's,

I am so completely honored to have been given not only
First Place in the folk/country category but the Grand Prize!
Wow...thank you so much for choosing me!

I make, live & breathe my art so completely that to be chosen is
a wonderful gift to me. Knowing the music I create and sing
is touching people's lives, is 100% why I do this.
I am driven by an insatiable need to connect with people and tell
the stories I feel sometimes would not otherwise be told.
I also share this honor with the wonderful souls I have been
fortunate enough to meet along my journeys...and who without, I would
have no words to sing.
Thank you so much for believing in me".

Love,
Christene

Gail Comments:
"Dear Andy and the Andelle Music Family,

Songs are such personal things, and when Andelle picked the one closest to my gigging heart, I was so thankful! I live the story of this song over and over again, and the message is "Whatever you do, if you touch at least one person... then it's all worth it." I'm so Thankful that my song touched you guys - Thank you so much for choosing "Couple in the Corner." Validations like this are very inspiring! :)

P.S. I surfed around the web and listened to as many finalists as I could find, and I don't know HOW you narrowed it down to a few winners - they were all outstanding songs! "The entertainer" is absolutely beautiful - congratulations Christene"
