I want to wish everyone a very happy, joyful and loving holiday season. So many of you have written me, sent cards and letters and I want you to know how thankful I am for your friendship!
It is my Christmas/Hanukkah wish for you all that music-making... particularly singing... is part of this time for you and your loved ones. Never has there been a more perfect time for 'making a joyful noise' ... whether that sound is professional or a family jam session where no voice is judged less important than another.
My New Year's wish is that your gratitude list, like mine, keeps expanding. Raise a glass of something or other with me to toast 2012. No matter what direction the economy and music business goes, no matter what life thing blindsides us, there will also be diamonds... blessings and sweet surprises ... embedded in every day. I find it so important, for so many reasons, to look for, notice and focus our spirits on them.
Thank you for being part of my journey. I can almost hear you singing!
God bless you and your precious voices...
