Val Halloran -- I Had No Idea
- Friday, October 19, 2001
Where does Val Halloran find the time to record a beautiful, inspirational CD called I Had No Idea? The singer-songwriter Val Halloran has eight children, and her grandson is only two years younger than her youngest.
The Broken Records recording artist has a 70s flavor to her voice -- think Anne Murray mixed with Karen Carpenter -- and uses her alto/tenor range on easy-going songs like Keeper Of My Heart and Father. According to Halloran, listeners have strongly responded to the inspirational favorite, By Your Grace.
I Had No Idea has been somewhat of a collaborative experience for Halloran. Most of the lyrics for Father came from her son, while her arranger/co-writers daughter, Leilani Clark, sang Keeper Of My Heart to a radio audience of 3 million as the winner of Garrison Keillors A Prairie Home Companion talent contest this past April.
According to Halloran, you can hear Leilanis live performance of Keeper of My Heart by going to http://www.phc.mpr.org and looking for Clarks name under the April 21, 2001, show.
If you like tender piano and guitar ballads done with a rich, confident voice, Val Hallorans I Had No Idea makes a great addition to your music collection. The CD is available thru:
