last night's concert with David Foster and Friends has to be on my short list of most incredible musical and personal experiences I've ever had in my entire life. David created a duet for Seal and myself to merge "When a Man Loves a Woman" and "It's a Man's World" -- culminating with us singing both songs together and it was an out of body experience! Seal and I got to spend a lot of time speaking before and after the show. He's always been one of my favorite singer songwriters ... but is now on my favorite human beings list. Seal is a Deep, wise, gracious, generous human being. I was so honored to share the stage with him. And live he's as great as his recordings. When I meet people I admire as Artists, it's always ultimately gratifying when they're as great a Person. Seal inspires me as an artist and a man. Next blog coming up ... the "miracle" of Lara Fabian and our duet on Foster's masterpiece "The Prayer". love, mb

Wow an "out of body experience" you enjoyed it I can tell :)
I find it uplifting when I read what a good person is and they are in an position to show people what a good,gracious person they can be because Michael you and everybody in the show buisness are otfen the ones that our youngest look upon for guidance and it's so nice to hear that!
Cannot wait to hear lara and yourself singing The prayer it is a beautiful song and I cannot wait to get my hands on the DVD to watch what I feel would just have been a magical experience and a magical night.
