"This is a beautiful collection of John Denver songs. The choice of music on the "Love Song" CD allows us to enjoy the clarity, richness, range and emotion of Cathy's voice. The words and music of the title song, which she wrote, are just beautiful and straight from the heart.....what a tribute to John Denver!"
Michael Donegan (Ireland)
"I have the pleasure of being the first to comment on this wonderful new album of gospel music
A Matter of Faith from Cathy Gianfala Carriere, who has previously impressed me with her collection of John Denver songs. Cathy is certainly a versatile artist and she shows it here across a wide range of songs of faith, including some that are new to me. This is an artist who knows how to deliver a song. Another excellent album from Cathy Gianfala Carriere."
Coming from a very musical family, my life has always been about music.
I sing many styles. Pop, Classical, Sacred, Jazz Standards, Broadway, Folk and Country.
For me, singing and playing music is not about what I can get from it, but about what I can give to others. Music can help to heal. I hope to make a difference with the music I'm inspired to write and perform for you. Thank you to John Denver's friends, fans, musicians and others for your wonderful comments and support of my albums, "Love Song A Tribute to John Denver" and "A Matter of Faith."
Have a joyful day, keep life simple and let your light shine! God bless you! Cathy

In the year 2000, Cathy had a very profound dream about John Denver and wrote lyrics to "Love Song A Tribute to John Denver." In 2009, while inspired with new songs, the music came to her in about 10 minutes.
"Love Song" led her to be invited to sing at John Denver's Tribute in Aspen, Colorado Oct. 2010 and every year. Oct. 12, 2012, the 15th Anniversary on John Denver's death, Cathy was honored to be asked to be guest Soloist for a Memorial Sunset Service for John Denver in Aspen, at his Windstar Land Conservancy and asked to sing Catholic Hymns that John Denver loved.
She sang in Aspen at other venues as well.
Cathy is working on new projects, performing Concerts and has been invited to perform in Marseilles, France and other countries in Europe, as well as in the U.S.
