“My Prayer” as performed by The Platters was recently featured in two episodes of Twin Peaks: The Return. I first heard this song from a 1939 recording by The Ink Spots. I’ve been performing this song for several years, but “The Return” has inspired me to finally record a solo rendition of this great tune. Enjoy!

Thank you to Billy Dec at A Chicago Thing for having me write this fun guest blog post. Check it out!
