I must start this blog with simply expressing my love for my favorite place in the World. London. I love it so much and living in London for the time that I was there was the best time of my life. I recall starring on the West End doing a musical and performing on the Olivier Awards and feeling such appreciation for my talent. Having the opportunity to return to sing for Charity was a no brainer. The West End for those of you who don’t know is London’s equivalent of Broadway here in America.
During this trip to London I felt so much excitement traveling to the West End to perform with other artist currently starring in great musicals. And there were a few fans who attended the concert who knew my work from my time on the West End as well.
I decided to sing a song called All the Man I Need by Whitney Houston. In honour of Whitney and my new love. It was his first time hearing me sing live. The combination of singing in the City I love to the man I love was elating.
Music has a way of helping and healing. My heart has been healed by music more times than I can count. So here I was again on the stage this time contributing my time and talent to charity. In the past I have thought singing is not enough. I must do more and I do. But I have learned by many of the fans I get to sing for that singing, showing up, being loving and singing my heart out for them helps and blesses them too. The band was also incredible and I especially loved the string section. So much talent on one stage. Its such a great responsibility to be on stage with so many professionals who have studied their entire lives for the moment you get to share with them. I never take for granted every artist who contributes to making the show and my songs great. Its such a joy and it feels like everyone is flying high together with this great effort to move the hearts of the audience and bring them to their feet.
I look forward to going back to London and sharing more of my music.
Thank you to everyone in London for always loving me back.
