“FLY! is a song for piano, French horn, and voice in the Key of C.  I started with a common chord progression in the Key of C as in Magic Changes from Grease, then I put my own spin on it and added lyrics. I was inspired to write this song because we have been studying slaves and the challenges they faced to become free. This song is about freedom and considering the timing of Nelson Mandela’s passing, I decided to tribute this song to him and how he won his freedom for himself and so many others. I used the images of an eagle soaring high and a dolphin swimming in the deepest sea and how they represent freedom to me. ”
