A MAMMOTH-SIZED
"THANK YOU!"
to all who attended the concert that night!

The "Pat Duncan Memorial Benefit Concert" was my first public performance since breaking free from DURANGO back in April. July 12th was also the first time that my little sisters and I ever performed together in public. Certainly not the last time though! Noodles and Jenzy delivered rock solid harmony vocals for me, and we had Li'l Superman, Alex "The Almighty" Nyhus, (formerly of DURANGO) providing supporting accompaniment on acoustic guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and blues harp. What gave me the MOST pre-show jitters was knowing that this show was my very first headlining gig where a majority of the songs we'd be performing would be songs that I wrote. Laying a string of "unfamiliar" songs on an audience in one big stretch like that could have proven disastrous, but these folks really stayed with me. I can't even begin to express how much it meant to hear those high-decibel crowd responses throughout our 90-minute set. The warmth, enthusiasm and support was overwhelming. I know it meant an awful lot to Mike Duncan and his family too. Thanks for making what was already a special occasion for us, truly unforgettable.

May God Bless All of You!

Now You're My Angel

Music & Lyrics by Marilyn Watterson, Postlude Music by Gino Ruberto 2003
Piano & Vocals: Gino Ruberto

Mike and Pat Duncan were high school sweethearts and more in love than any married couple I have ever known. Mike lost Pat to pancreatic cancer last August. Pat's sister, Marilyn, wrote a song honoring her beloved sister as a gift to Mike. All of the song's lyrics came from love letters that Mike had written to Pat during their thirty-two blissful years of marriage. A few months ago, Mike played me an acoustic guitar & vocal demo of the song that Marilyn had given to him, and asked me if I could put together my own arrangement of the song and perform it at the benefit. Talk about a tough assignment! I figured the only way I could possibly complete the song and really do it justice was to close my eyes and try to put myself in his place, try to seep inside his soul and truly feel the sorrow and the loneliness he must have felt watching the love of his life slipping away from him right before his eyes. This recording from the July 12th benefit concert was the debut performance of "Now You're My Angel". It got a standing ovation.
