John Denver Songs
Laurie Vela & Melissa Serenac
We are gathering to honor the great poet and songwriter John Denver
by singing his beautiful songs. We have song sheets for everyone to sing
along with some of his popular as well as some of his more obscure songs.
From Rhymes and Reasons, we'll travel down Country Roads with Sunshine
On (our) Shoulders! If you have a favorite to lead or share, feel free
to bring it along.
Laurie Story Vela grew up singing John Denver
songs; touched by their beauty and profound poetry, he was a definite
influence in her own songwriting.
Says Laurie, "John Denver goes right to the heart every time, and
that is one of the most important purposes of a song." Laurie has
written hundreds of songs, many for children and many for adults. Some
are super silly and some dive into the depths of the soul. She has produced
dozens of CDs & videos and uses a lot of songs from her latest recordings
on her website: www.newthoughtfamilies.com. These web pages with songs,
pictures and text are designed to uplift and inspire.
