Mary Poppins, 1964

I knew the soundtrack for Mary Poppins before I could recite my ABC’s for memory. Some songs just stick with you! And that’s what happened when I first heard my grandpa play his Mary Poppins record.

It was about 1999 when I started singing along to the incredible soundtrack, and would try and play along on the Piano by ear. When I was able to play Piano with both hands (aged 8), my grandpa gifted me his Mary Poppins record & record player. I’ve lived in a lot of houses, moved through a few different cities in my life, and I’ve taken this everywhere I go. This is the one gift I have always, and will always treasure.
