Whitney Houston

12th February 2012 | 0 Comments

I am offended by the words of people who are so cavalier about the death of the great Whitney Houston. Statements like: “waste of talent,” “I don’t feel sorry for her” and “she blew it” shock and sicken me. It’s as if they have no compassion and seemingly revel in the demise of others.


Doing the Happy Dance!

Mushiness alert: this post contains expressions of such happiness and gratitude that they may make you puke. But I’m just too happy to give a damn!


Weddings

Weddings are very special because they involve families, and like individuals, every family has its own unique story and traditions that are present or should be present at every wedding celebration.

Bringin’ in a Brand New Year

31st December 2010 | 7 Comments

I finally got tired of feeling tired and low-down. I am singing tonight and right after I said to myself: “I wish I could just stay home on the couch and watch TV tonight,” I realized that I am going to be a big part of how a lot of people will be starting off [...]


Dancin’, Dancin’ Dancing!!

26th September 2010 | 0 Comments

I brought my camera with me to document the dancing and the energy level at the two big parties that Lynne Jordan & the Shivers (me & the band) performed at this weekend. Both parties required massive amounts of dancing. Each party would have been a total bust if this did not happen. Both parties [...]


Getting ready for show time.

24th September 2010 | 2 Comments

It’s time to get it together. I have to start thinking about support garments (girdle), organize music for tonight’s audience, boa (or no boa?) make up, evening gown, getting prepared to put on the show-face and mindset and keep it on all night long! We are performing at a private party tonight – a fancy [...]

A Bit of a Breather & Some Dap Inspiration

Whew! I have been busy these past few weeks and I ain’t complaining but Lordy! it sure feels good to have a minute to stop. Of course these minutes free from gigging must be spent planning, strategizing and creating the future. Funny thing happened in Ottawa, Ontario. The Ottawa Jazz festival was playing across the [...]
