Kids Rock!

Comments Off on Kids Rock!

Throughout my music career, I’ve had some pretty amazing moments.
Singing the National Anthem for Independence Day at Dodger Stadium, performing at the American Music Awards after-party, 9 career San Diego Music Award nominations and the unicycle girl! But, it seems the ones that really knock me for a loop are those involving kids. Performing in elementary schools always makes me feel special because the kids are so enthusiastic!
They sing along to all the words and want me to autograph everything from their foreheads to their shoes! I usually defer to a piece of paper or their notebook so as to not upset their parents with any Sharpie tattoos that could become responsible for them never wanting to bathe ever again.
The music video for my song “Friend” with the 3rd & 4th graders of Warren-Walker is at the top of my list of accomplishments.

Now meet Jordan! A 13 year-old boy I met at a performance I made earlier this month at Old CA Coffee House. He introduced himself and told me he had recently started playing guitar and we chatted for a bit. Later that night he sent me an email telling me I was awesome and to keep doing what I’m doing.
Then I got another email from him this weekend with a link to Youtube and his rendition of my song “Addicted”. OMG! All the memories of starting out around that age came rushing back! Jordan, keep doing what you’re doing!

I Mean…..Sharing!
One of the greatest feelings in the world wouldn’t you say?
The warm fuzzies you get when you see a smile breakout on someone’s face because you just shared something special with them. Strange how I don’t seem to get that reaction all the time though. Like when I share my opinion, my toenail clippings or my middle finger. Oh well, to each their own.

July is National Ice Cream Month. YAY! my buddy Charlie took some video footage at a Block Party in Poway and our pal Tim edited it to a snippet of my song “Ice Cream”. They wanted to share it with me and I with you. Maybe you’d like to put a smile on someone’s face by sharing it with them. That social networking site Facebook sure has made sharing easy. Thinking of all those potential smiles out there has me smiling already!
What would Cher do?!
Happy Monday!

I was sipping a martini and singing 80’s hairband songs with my buddy JD Boucharde at his Turf Club gig when Tim Flack texted me that I had been nominated for another San Diego Music Award. Apparently, my latest release “songs i know the words to” is up for “Best Pop Album”.
(9th career nomination – 0 wins so far)
Do you realize what this means?!

Snobby schmoozing, babes and boozing, red carpets and celebrity, paparazzi and popularity. My whole life is about to change!
Yeah right! It actually means that I have great fans who support me, inspire me and allow me to be ME. Being nominated is an honor and I share it with you. Because of you, I WIN everyday, doing what it is I love to do! Thank You!
