Award winning TV news journalist Pam Saulsby has written many different stories in a career that spans 30 years. But not one assignment is more important to her than shining a light on our military men and women and their families.
Pam brings all of that urgency, energy and passion to her new music album called "Holding It Down."
It's for the troops, but also for herself.
In 2011, Pam found herself back in the job market, struggling to find employment when many TV news reporters her age were aging to of the business.
She had to fight stereotypes, assumptions, and doubts about her ability and drive after so many years in the trenches.
Ultimately, pushing back paid off. She returned to TV news and feels part of her success is because she used the power of holding it down and fighting on.
She knows that our troops push back, and hold things down in dangerous places for our freedom.
Pam considers her album "Holding it Down" a playlist for military members and their families. Each tune was carefully selected by Pam for maximum impact: to show thanks and appreciation to them all.
Most of the songs on the album were produced by Durham, North Carolina Native Chip Shearin. Shearin's work as a bassist was recognized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
Listeners may find it hard to believe that the singer belting out Marvin Gaye's classic "Let's Get It On" was terribly shy growing up. She was incredibly introverted and never considered singing in public until she was all grown up.
She is a late bloomer, making up for lost time.
