Sad News Today

Dear friends, Last night I lost a very dear friend who was a great help to me in my career. I am away singing right now and the last thing she would want is for me to write this as I am extremely sad and in tears. Maria Ganotti-Fersko my trusted friend, assistant, agent and lawyer passed away. I know many of you have dealt with her in the past and I can say that my life was better for knowing her. She has been helping me for the last 5 years. We met at a Mario Lanza Society Luncheon in NY and became friends straight away. Her undying dedication to helping me attain my goals was unparalled right from the beginning. She was always there for me when I needed her and I will miss her kind words and fond wishes always. Just email me for funeral arrangements and I will give anyone information as I get it. Should I attain great heights in this field of music, Maria was and is an undeniable part of my success. In the 5 years Ive known her I have come so far. You did your job with me Maria. She always ended her emails with me saying "you are always in my prayers". Many of you dont know she was a former nun. She had a deep faith and I know she is with her maker now. Let us all keep her kind soul in our prayers. Good night, Maria, "sogni d'oro". Thank you for everything you did and everything you are.
