Everyday we make memories. Memories of happiness, love, despair, hope, and the list goes on. Perhaps that is what created Lacie, the person she is today.
When Lacie was younger, she always loved music. You could always find her trying to play notes on the piano, or singing a song. Her mother says that when she was born, she had good lungs, and a big mouth. Perfect for singing. :)
Music has always been very important to her. She was fortunate to have a mother that saw the importance of music in her life, and implemented its teaching with her surroundings. She started with music at age 3 and started piano lessons at 6 years old.
Her family moved from Utah to Missouri one year after starting piano lessons, and they couldn't find a teacher. So her brother Addison and her spend the early hours of the morning before school practicing. They taught themselves, with the little bits they knew how to do.
Going through her young life she had no fears or sadness. Everything was perfect in her eyes. Then a special person in her life passed away when she was 8 years old. That same week she helped with a service project of cleaning a church. She went into the dim chapel. Only light coming through the windows were shining in right on the a piano. All alone, she went in, and sat on this old wooden grand piano. She sat there, and looked at it, not knowing where to begin. All I could hear was the air conditioner in the background. She opened up the lid, and began to play as she had felt. Music came out that she “had never before heard.” little delicate notes like a music box. She turned to music to help calm her aching soul. Her special-interest in piano music was very important to her, as she saw that it is brought many healing blessings not only to her but to others.
Ever since, she has learned to play from her heart, and not just from a book. She began composing and arranging beautiful arrangements at a young age. It wasn’t until they moved to Idaho years later, she recorded her first album at age 15. Never had she ever sang in front of anyone. She shared her talent on the piano plenty of times. She was so so nervous about sharing her voice that she locked herself up in her recording studio, and sang. By opening it up to the world, and receiving compliments, that was motivation for her to continue. She continued recording, her voice progressed. She has produced several albums since.
She says, “I cannot take credit for this gift. It it my Heavenly Father who has blessed me and has given me inspiration to create music on the piano. As a musician, my hope is to use the gift which Heavenly Father has given me. The music enters my mind, floods into my heart, flows through my hands, then brings peace to the heart.”
