Briefs for Dec. 15
Leanne Gibson and Karla Watson, both of Meeker and formerly of Craig, are selling their Christian album, “Life’s Pathway.”
Gibson has sung all her life, and Watson is a 10-year member of the vocal group Yampa Valley Chapter of Sweet Adelines International. The two teamed up about a year ago and said they liked the way their voices sounded together.
Gibson’s husband produced the 12 songs on his laptop computer. Her son helped with instruments and sang one of the songs.
Watson said the music’s message is God’s love and support.
“It’s very soothing. It’s very comforting,” she said. “It also gives you encouragement.”
The CDs are $12 and are available at Jackson’s Office Supply and Radio Shack, 106 W. Victory Way, Craig, and Wendlls Wondrous Things, 594 Main St., Meeker.
After the women’s expenses, the proceeds will go to a charity or ministry. The women said they would like to use the profits locally.
