Prior to the Rocky Road Choir, Jeannie knew she needed something to satisfy and fulfil her life.
Soon after joining the choir, she felt a sense of belonging and hasn’t looked back since. Jeanie heard about Reclink Australia and the choir through Rivendell where she is a participant.
“I am drawn like a magnet," Jeanie said. "Every song we sing has a meaning and a purpose, which is beautiful. Even if I’m feeling a bit unwell or a bit low, I still get myself to choir because once I start singing, it lifts my spirits."
The choir has changed Jeannie’s life in so many ways. She says it has brought her enjoyment, fulfilment and happiness to her life and it has also built herself self-esteem and confidence.
“I have met a lot of friendly people during choir rehearsals and we have this special bond. We’re like this big happy family," JEanie said.
"Without the choir I would feel lost and empty, as if something was missing in my life. I need to sing now to feel complete.”
