“Thank you!” Imagine the smile on God’s face when these two simple words are spoken from a grateful heart. Giving thanks and praise to God is so easy when all is right with the world
Giving thanks and praise to God (with true sincerity) is quite a different matter when life becomes one uphill battle after another. Our battle scars can transform and change us into bitter or better persons. Our battle scars become our permanent wounds or our triumphant medals.
No one knows our wants and needs better than God. A grateful heart "sees" God's blessings in all things. God's "holy surprises" unfold with the passing of time. Lorraine's third album reminds us to give praise and thanks to God for all His blessings every day!

Loss is no stranger to Lorraine Doan. She survived the break-up of her 23-year marriage and family. Her financial resources were practically depleted and her future was up for grabs. She faced the prospect of losing her home to a sheriff's sale. She was in modern day language "a displaced homemaker".
All the odds were stacked against her.
Yet, she has caught the attention of thousands. Her albums have circled the globe. Since August of 1998, without the benefit of commercial advertisement or the endorsement of a major label, Lorraine has successfully placed over 72,000 copies of The Promise, Gift of Grace, Blessings, and Walking by Faith. Relying on faith, inspiration and common sense, Lorraine composed, produced and marketed her music to over 800 stores throughout North America.
With Sean McCleery, the arranger and pianist of her instrumental albums, she proved that nothing is impossible with God. Her melodies are simple, yet, soothing. Each album includes the written lyrics of her compositions.
Her albums have been featured in the following catalogs: The National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Charismatic Renewal Services, the Leaflet Missal Company, the Blue Army Shrine Christmas Catalog, the Catholic Biblical Association of Canada catalog, and the United Methodist Publishing House (UMPH) Inspirations catalog.
In October 2007, Wordnet Productions (an affiliate of Trinity Broadcast Network) aired her interview with Fr. Michael Manning’s,SVD. weekly program, “The Power of Love”.
Her music was featured by ABC TV One Archdiocese ~ Two Basilicas, (Robert Dolan, producer) for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin , December 2006.
Her story was published in the Summer 2004 edition of Medjugorje Magazine. First for Women Magazine (circulation 1.5 million) featured her story in the series "Light the Way" in its March, 2005 edition.
She has been a guest on radio and cable television. Additionally, she has given presentations at Immaculata Spirituality Center, Immaculata, PA, Stella Maris Retreat Center, Skaneateles, NY, Dominican Retreat House, Elkins Park, PA, the local chapters of the American Association of University Women, the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians, the Catholic Women of Zion, NJ chapters 1,2,3, Magnificat Chapters in Philadelphia, PA and Lincoln, NE, the National Centre for Saint Padre Pio, Barto, PA, the Franciscan Spiritual Center, Ringwood, NJ and The Torchbearers, St. Louis, MO.
This former elementary education teacher and homemaker demonstrates to all women that personal tragedy and financial upheaval can be transformed into something of beauty and value. Her triumph comes from her firm belief in God and the courage to believe in herself.
Versatility is an understatement when describing Sean's many talents. Composer, arranger, conductor, pianist… are notably at the top of the list.
Graduating from Wheaton College in 1991 with a degree in music composition, Sean opened his own audio visual production studio, Sound in Motion, now in Perkasie, Pennsylvania.
In 1997, Sean met Lorraine through a mutual friend. They formed a working relationship and completed The Promise in a mere nine months.
Obviously, it was meant to be. Gift of Grace, released in November 2001, and Blessings, released in March 2005, have also received widespread acclaim.
Sean resides in Sellersville, PA with his wife and two sons. Music is a family affair. Both he and his wife, Julia, peform as a duo in the Philadelphia area. Black and white seems to be the color of choice for Sean. He holds a black belt in karate and has given instruction in the martial arts.
"His creativity can only be described in superlatives…a master of his craft, God certainly chose the best for me!" is Lorraine's response when questioned about her musical collaborator.
Claudia Barua was raised in Peru. She received her formal education by the Sacred Heart Sisters who instilled in her a deep love and devotion for Mary, our Blessed Mother. She pursued her higher education in the United States and received her BA in Business from Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas. She is currently enrolled in the Masters program of Theology and Ministry at LaSalle University in Philadelphia, PA.
Her deep desire in life to heed the voice of God has always been her inspiration to work in the various areas of Church ministry. El Santo Rosario and its English version The Holy Rosary, are her debut albums. They are a collaboration with Sean McCleery, who is well known for his exquisite piano and orchestral arrangements of religious music.
A miraculous idea….a daunting endeavor…proof that anything is possible with God!
The sweetness of her voice, in prayer and song, will rouse the heart and soul of the listener as she invites all to honor Mary in the meditation of the mysteries of the Rosary. Through
Mary’s intercession, even the most desolate soul, will findpeace, healing and comfort ….for it is through Mary, that we come to know the infinite love and mercy of Jesus.
