Nearing the end of this long, long tour around the world, I am growing deeper into my own gratitude for being able to do what I love so much. This was perhaps my favorite concert ever at the RAH. To walk into the most beautiful magical venue in the world and feel such warmth and overwhelming love and support from my fans in London and from all of the UK, was absolutely amazing. It was just so deep and powerful for me, I wanted to give even more. This was more of an emotional night than I could express for all kinds of reasons.

From the stage, we couldn't always make out all of the many conversations going on and comments from this very lively audience, but the overall effect was a plethora of tones that constantly felt positive and playful. People were just smiling and beaming at whatever was being expressed. I was taken aback by the signs congratulating me on the birth of my granddaughter Amelia, flowers and teddy bears handed up to the stage, and lots of love and laughter all night. It was equally special for my band, many of them playing in this intimidating and inspiring venue for the first time. My crew is made of heart and steel to keep going strong 90 shows into the tour. They load in early and load out late every night. I'm just so grateful.

My dear friend, Joan Lunden calls it "an attitude of gratitude" and that's just what I'm feeling.

Love and thanks to all, MB

Dear Michael,
So sorry you are not feeling that great. Did you ever try Emergen C packets? I take one every day whether I need it or not...seems to help to keep my immune system in gear. I wish you well and up and ready to perform as you feel able. May your healing music and loving support you receive enable you to have a complete and speedy recovery!
Happy Chanukah!
SS
May you have a complete and speedy recovery!
