Hey, no one else was planning one anytime soon, so I said to myself, "S. Elf",  I'll plan my own tribute album and invite folks to send me a song."

It took me 15 years to complete my debut CD "I'm Forcing Goodness Upon You," so I thought I should get busy on this project right away.  I was delighted if not somewhat stunned that the plan worked, songs started pouring in!

The Shari Elf Tribute Album is my favorite album of all time and I think you'll enjoy it, too, if only to steal the idea and arrange your own Tribute Album.  I think the world would be a happier place if everyone had their own tribute album. 

And a special big thank you for all my new best friends who made songs for this album.  I love you guys!  Something good happened to me this year!  love,  Shari
