The song Chords is the first Genelle has ever written, along with the help from God. He gave her the flowing lyrics she wrote, says Genelle. “Today, I can safely say that those flowing lyrics have such great meaning and understanding.”

 

As she sums it up, “Performing is my life and I enjoy putting a smile on faces each and every time I perform. I always try to be humble and patient and these qualities have allowed me to be successful in everything I do.”
