7/7/10 finally home for .... 6 whole days!! Yay!!!!!!!
Just returned home to see my family and friends and there's no place like home. I had a week of work after pretty grueling world tour schedule. Just one show in Prague and then 3 days in London and Glasgow, Scotland. The Scotland show was a great on a new TV show called "Tonight's the Night" where I performed with a lovely woman named Carol MacIntre. A woman who 20 years ago was in The Academy of Dance and gave up her dream of being a performer to get married and give her time to her husband (also very sweet and gracious human being) and she was given the gift of performing on national TV.
The part she was not aware of until she walked into the piano rehearsal room, was that she would be singing "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You" with me and the cameras caught the surprise on her face when she walked in and I dropped the sheet music I pretended to be reading and said "Hello, Carol." She turned beet red and was so excited. I expected her to be incredibly nervous while rehearsing but she has always loved singing and has a beautiful voice so it was all fun from there on. We performed it in front of a full studio audience and her husband was brought up on stage and she cried and he was emotional and so proud of her and I was just grateful we could all make it happen because there's no way to understand how much that could mean to someone like Carol. It was truly an amazing moment for everyone.
The show is hosted by John Barrowman (a big star in the UK and also has been starring in Desperate Housewives recently) who was very generous with everyone and spent some time holding Carol's hand and walking her through the process to make her more comfortable. John is really kind, very funny a great host and he looks a bit like Tom Cruise - so I think the show is going to be very successful. Granting people their deepest wishes and watching them rise to embrace the moment is an inspiring theme that will win anyone over.
Lots of love, bye for now,
