HI Donna, my husband and I just got home from seeing your show in Kendalville, In . We listened to your All the Way To Bethelhem CD on the way home a couple times. It's very beautiful! A true work of art and a blessing. We especially enjoyed the way the stories intertwined with the instruments and your beautiful voice. Thank you for sharing Gods word with so many. We live in Valparaiso, IN and the drive was more than worth it . You and I spoke briefly as I was purchasing your CD and you so graciously autographed for me. I'm the appendix cancer survivor that spoke with you about 5 years ago, the one who was told she had 3 months to live 10 years ago and yet here I am still. I've been a nurse for twenty years. We look forward to seeing you and The Poor Mountain Boys soon.

Hi Suzy, Thank you so much for this sweet message. I am so glad you enjoyed the Christmas album. I feel it is one of the best things I have ever written .I believe I must have had some heavenly help because the thought of trying to tell the greatest story ever told in some kind of fresh way was quite an undertaking. I did a lot of research on it and spent many hours on the phone consulting with my uncle who is a theologian. This year The Poor Mountain Boys and I have some shows booked where we will perform the album from start to finish. The band members will read the scripture that inspired each song and then I will share some of my thoughts and give insights to how I approached the characters in each song. We are doing one of the shows in Rockville, IN on Dec. 2 which is as close as we will be to you but I hope you can make it. I remember speaking with you and am so glad to hear from you. We had a blast playing Kendalville and hope they will have us back in the future. Peace, Donna

Q

How can I get the lyrics for All the way to Bethlehem? Ilove the music and the message, but my hearing does not allow me to understand all the words on some of the songs. Thanks I also have Showing my roots and Hard cry moon, they are great.

There is a songbook that is available through Amazon.com with all the words and the chords and music. I also included more information on the inspiration for each song and my thought process when writing it and it has photos of me and all of my co-writers. I think you might enjoy the whole book. Thanks and I am so glad you like my music! Peace, Donna

Thanks. We love playing Mountaineer Opry. Just don't have anything on the books that will work as a tie-in at this time and they book up way in advance.

Q

Did you once sing at a place called The Fifth National Bank, Little Creek, VA?


Donna Ulisse responded on 08/23/2015
A

I sure did and loved singing there! My husband Rick Stanley and I were in a band together that was the house band. So nice that you remember!

Q

I think a LIVE CD and DVD would be great. Just a thought for the Queen of CAPS, lol


Donna Ulisse responded on 08/23/2015

Don't think we have not thought about it. There is a chance it will happen sometime in the future but not anytime soon! With DVD's it take s a different kind of licensing for the songs in the form of a synch license and it can get pricey according to my label.

Q

Just wanted to say thanks for the great shows at the Backbone festival last weekend. We love your music and hearing you live was wonderful ! We bought the All the Way to Bethlehem CD and love it. We listened to it all the way home ! Hope to see you again sometime. Linda And Ron Betts

well thank you so much! We had the best time at Backbone Bluegrass Festival! Loved the town of Strawberry Point and the festival! There is a little bit of talk that we might even be back there next year! I sure hope so. So glad you like the CD. I loved writing those songs and still consider it one of the best things I have ever done musically. Take care.
