Linda Kay Burk is a singer and songwriter in the midst of a lifelong quest to bring hope and joy to children, adults and families. She brings personal experience to her art. As a youth growing up in the Oregon countryside, her appreciation for music grew along with a love for nature.
Then at age 14 a life-changing event: her father died. To find comfort after her loss Linda immersed herself in singing and performing, playing Dorothy in the “Wizard Of Oz” and Liesl in “The Sound Of Music.” The die was cast: she had a dream to sing and perform and to help others feel better.
It was a dream augmented by college, marriage, giving birth to three children, and then adopting three infants in Mexico with her husband. She volunteered in her children’s schools as a music docent, sharing her love for music and song with children and teens. “I have always had a love for young people,” she says. “Assisting in programs for children and teens is one of my favorite activities.” Linda served on the board of C.H.A.A.D. (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), and was recently a director and instructor with a local teen group.
Her gentle, soothing and affirming music and lyrics come from a place deep within her wrought by hard work and life’s experiences. “I have worked hard for many years to achieve peace and happiness in my own life,” she says. “My songs have emerged from that healing journey. Everything I am I owe to the experiences of my life.”
Linda, whom friends refer to as “Singing Bird,” says that her songs brought her comfort and she now wants to share the uplifting joy of music with children and families. Her self-titled CD, “Linda Kay Burk: Singing the Songs of My Heart” was released in April of 2008.
Linda hopes her journey will inspire other women. “A few years ago I thought it was too late to live my dreams,” she says. “I am learning that it is truly never too late
