The USAF Band Holiday Flash Mob at the National Air and Space Museum 2013
By Judy Vorfeld This beautiful young woman is one of many of my talented nieces. She grew up living on Lake Quinault, Washington, and has always loved music. I wonder if it's because her mother, Jennifer, is a talented musician, and so is her grandmother, Carolyn Downing, and so was her great-grandmother, Ethel Crook. Wonderful, gifted women of the West. Alex has done a great deal of writing, singing, and performing, and recently spent a year in Nashville. Last summer, she opened for Amy Grant in the Aberdeen area of the Washington Coast. And here's a picture of her with Grant, who gave her the white roses. It's easy to see that Alex spreads sunshine wherever she goes. And she's on the go a great deal, since she's also an avid outdoor enthusiast. That's in her DNA too! Go, Alex!
