AllMusic Review by

Celebrating life's opportunities is a theme explored throughout Once In a Lifetime, an album of recognizable favorites blended with inspiring original material. Soprano sax, acoustic guitar, and flute gently accompany Carlson, performing endearing songs of love and support. The centerpiece here is "If You Could See Through My Eyes," a beautiful composition by Carlson that was inspired by her daughter, Jody, who was born with cerebral palsy and autism. Highlights of the more familiar material include popular Kenny G., Yanni, and Andrew Lloyd Webber selections that receive tasteful arrangements which display Carlson's unique talent.
