|Welcome to my story! I sing inspirational songs and write essays as an advocate for various health and social causes.
I attended universities in Los Angeles, earning a graduate degree in communications and undergraduate degree in economics. As an adventurer and lifelong learner, I answered a job ad to be a presenter on the popular TV show Jeopardy! Amazingly, I filled one of the four original positions of the Clue Crew from auditions of more than 5,000 entrants. Within a few months of reporting to work, my young son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. We faced those challenges with the love of family and friends and faith.
For seven adventurous years beginning in 2001, I appeared on the show in video clips taped from across the United States and internationally. I toured cultural, historic, and scientific locations in 12 countries and 35 states. These days, I apply this experience to Cheryl Farrell Communications, a communications consultancy.
My singing roots are deep within the church and I cling to them to this day. It’s understandable that my vocal performances have a common theme of tribute and remembrance. My motto: “I can sing Motown to the Messiah!”
In professional settings, I’ve performed at historic venues such as the original Motown recording studios, several Broadway stages, Harlem’s Apollo Theater, the pulpit of Ebenezer Baptist Church, and the Jeopardy! stage. I’ve had the honor to perform patriotic songs at sports stadiums.
I write songs that support a cause, offer inspiration, or celebrate life. I hope you find comfort here. Below are a few titles. Scroll down to hear three samples.
Bay Heart Music projects include the recording of a CD single entitled, “Promise To Remember Me.” The song was written by two award winning composers (Alan Silvestri and Stephen Schwartz) on behalf of children who live with type 1 diabetes. Proceeds from the recording benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
Sing long and live long,
