Well if working with Shaun LaBelle last night wasn’t enough…the Palms hosted an album release/ birthday party for me. If I weren’t indebted enough to Zoe Thrall, Reggie Turner and Larry Fink over there, they went over the top last night for my birthday. I was able to invite friends and family and the whole evening was so much fun.
We listened to my CD and got to play the newest song for everyone. Then Zoe gave me the ultimate birthday present: a purple microphone that was specifically designed according to the specification given to them by Prince. After I opened it, my mom went up and told everyone how much I have loved mics ever since I was little. A bit embarrassing but she is right. You couldn’t have given me a better present. THANK YOU SO MUCH. This is truly a blessing that will live in my heart forever.
WOW!!! Today I was truly blessed to have Shaun LaBelle produce a PSA for my We Need To Change Campaign. Not only is he producing it, he’s setting up cable tv distribution nationally. For those of you who don’t know Shaun’s background, for the past year and a half he has had the number one smooth jazz record in the country and we had some good “artist to artist” conversations during the shoot. Thank you Shaun and thanks Rob Chiarelli, one of the creative geniuses behind my record, for the hook up.
Kendall Tenney, Chair of the Southern Nevada Make A Wish Chapter and past NBC anchor did an interview this morning with me for the local NBC affiliate and it will be syndicated to NBC affiliates across the country. Kendall is someone I consider a friend and when he opened up our chat to my “pay it forward” campaign as he calls it, which is really called “We Need To Change” which I really appreciated it. The campaign is going to have its own website www.weneedtochangecampaign.org where I encourage people to step up and help those around them. I have been so blessed and I hope this song and campaign will help bless others. We’re still working out all the details but hopefully you’ll keep coming back to check up on it.
It’s my Birthday today….don’t have much to say about it other than I plan on making my 18th year a dynamic one. Looking forward to growing with all of you over the upcoming year. THANKS FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT.
