Greetings and Happy Holidays to all!

Before I share with you the latest news about my new cd and
 upcoming show, I wanted to say that I appreciate your friendship. My journey as an artist has had many twists and turns and a lot of you have been there for the ride.
I’m now thrilled to be on a new journey of discovery. I recently
enrolled in One Spirit Interfaith Seminary to become an Interfaith minister.. It is a wonderful experience being with LGBT AND Straight people who are seeking the same goal of peace for the world. This new direction confirms my desires to minister with my music, and I have begun to do so in NYC. If anyone is interested in me coming to your church, near or far, please do email me and lets talk. rogermapes at yahoo.com 

THANKS to all who helped put me in the November OutVoice Top 40, www.outvoice.net with my new cd House of Joy-produced by the amazing Robert Urban (www.roberturban.com). I just released it in October and you guys responded so quickly..WOW.. what a gift.

I just released my new cd House of Joy and had a full
 house for my opening party in October. Many of you were there and I thank you so much. I will be doing the show again on:
