With a song in her heart, Litchfield woman ministers to those in need

Making her way down the stairs at her Litchfield home, the schoolteacher soon found herself seated in front of the family piano — the same one her parents had bought her when she was 10 but seldom played.
Now a full-time singer, songwriter and author, Recco has made it her mission to minister to those in need through her gentle soprano.
“The chaplain took one look at me and shook his head,” Recco recalled with a laugh. “He said it was the first time in a decade that a new volunteer was given security clearance.”
“Every one of us has gone through some type of storm in their lives,” she said. “The goal is to get through it all.”
Recco’s latest CD, “From Storm to Serenity,” shares her personal struggles and the strong faith in God that led her through a very turbulent storm in her own life.
Just last year, while attending a healing service with the Rev. Ralph DiOrio, Apostolate of Divine Mercy and Healing Ministry, Recco was led back toward the keyboard when the priest approached her, asking her if she’d consider singing with his ministry.
These days, there’s no such thing as a typical day in the life of Nancy Recco.
A Catholic by faith, Recco said she’s happy to spread that message to people of all religious backgrounds, noting the universal spiritual themes explored in her music.
Recco will perform at a free concert at St. Jude’s Catholic Church in Londonderry on Sunday, Aug. 11.
The concert, held at 435 Mammoth Road, will begin at 6 p.m. and is appropriate for music lovers of all ages.
