Length of time at LifeSongs: I’ve been with LifeSongs in New Orleans since 2000. But before that, in 1998, LifeSongs owned a small AM Southern Gospel station in Atlanta, that I worked at for a short time under the stage name of Rosie. True Story.

Favorite LifeSongs concert: The first LifeSongs concert after Hurricane Katrina. It could have been any artist, but it happened to be Chris Tomlin at the House of Blues. The morning of the concert, Chris Tomlin had heard New Orleans’ own Hack Bartholomew playing outside Cafe du Monde and invited him to open for the concert. That night was magical.
