My father (Harold McKinney) may not have died a wealthy man but, he was rich with people who loved him and his music. He left plenty of music that has not been heard by the masses. As soon as I am able to raise the money I'm planning to go into the studio with some great musicians. At that time, I will begin the continuation of my father's legacy, that was left to my family and I.

As I dive into his many compositions, I will be able to add some of my own interpretations to the music. I will also give some of my colleagues a chance to breathe life into some of his unfinished works. This is exciting for me! I will have a chance to hear how some of his music will be interrpreted by others! I believe my father would have liked that.

The donations that you make will be used for recording costs, graphics, promotion and CD duplication.

Thank you in advance for helping me keep my father's musical voice alive.

Much Love to you all!

Gayelynn McKinney :-)
