Now pageant enthusiasts can enjoy the sweet sounds of a former Miss on Just In Time, a compilation of show tunes and favorites of Miss America 1981, Susan Powell.
"Music gives voice and language to express our souls in ways that words and speech just can't do. it's a language all its own," she says.
Just In Time is "elegant," and will bring listeners into a world of fresh musical translations using only voice and piano–played by Philip Fortenberry. To listen to the music is to be in the same room as the musicians.
Susan plays piano as well, although she says it is a hobby done "when no one is listening." She also went to college on a partial trumpet scholarship, and played it in the September-October performance of Guys and Dolls as Sarah Brown in the Mission Band.
Susan recorded Just In Time at the end of last year, and it is available for purchase on her website.
