I couldn’t even think of a better title to label the roller coaster of a month that has gone by!
1. It’s Time To Show More Love:
The world was stunned by the senseless shootings that occurred in just one weekend: one man shot and killed singer Christina Grimmie and another killed 50 people and injured dozens.
This had me reeling and concerned. I’ve never experienced anything to that extent, but to think that someone could just walk right up to you at/during/after a show and just shoot you? Artists give their energy to fans in hopes that they build and grow. This is not how the energy should be put out.
And to think that you could be celebrating one minute and clinging on to or lose you life the next minute is unfathomable. I still can’t wrap my head around it.
My thoughts and prayers are to everyone affected by these incidents; families and friends who lost their loved ones, those who have been injured and those who have been struck by fear due to these instances. Hate and fighting is not the answer against these types of incidents. This is a time where we need more understanding, acceptance and love so we can overcome all of the pain and hate that we have all been affected by.
2. Ultimate Candy Video:
MC2 Records and I are getting closer to releasing the music video for my latest single “Ultimate Candy”! We had an excellent shoot filled with balloons, lots of pink and of course, a ton of Candy! Stay tuned!
3. Reach for the Stars Boat Cruise:
If you couldn’t make it to the boat cruise, I will say it bluntly: you missed a wonderful time! I have to give a big shout out to Joan Hindes for putting together such a great show, the DJ and the Yankee Lady 3 Boat Crew, but most of all… the wonderful people that sailed along for this spectacular event! Make sure you are there for the next one!
This city experienced the stars aligning – on stage and in the sky! I absolutely loved Hedley’s performance, Alessia Cara was wonderful and I was glad that Desiigner managed to get out of the audience after that dive! It was a full moon, with Mars and Saturn and Pluto in the sky on a summer solstice with the wonderful Andres by my side and a really great show just before me.
5. Beach time!:
One does not simply start off the summer without a beach! I had to make sure to soak in some rays, enjoy the hot sand, and relax in between shows, practices/rehearsals, work and chaos!
By the way, Yaba Angelosi and I have a song that will heat your summer up for sure!
