To all of my family who helped and

we will never be the same again. It is because of
your hearts openness, willingness, soulfulness, and
hard work that God has blessed all of us. (We were
a 300 person cast, the biggest event I have ever put
on in my life....mom, you rattled your jewelry).
Jeanie Tracy, our Queen of the Bay
Area with “Didn't it Rain”, brought all
the emotions to the fore. We love and adore you!
And to all involved, we shot for the
moon, got the moon and then some! We want to inspire
all music on the earth and the children who love the
music. Play your hearts out.

This season has been sooo busy, haven't
had time to breathe. The Angela Bofill Concert was
offfffffffff the *freakin Chain*
OMGggggggggg!!!The beautiful Grace Cathedral was packed
and every seat filled. There was at least 4,000 people
there. Thank you Narada for selecting me to be Angela's
voice for the evening. I sung ANGEL OF THE NIGHT and
I TRY, two of her biggest hits....I had a 16 voice
choir backup and six piece band. Bonnie Raitt , and
my friend Carlos Santana, Bonnie Hayes and Mary wilson
were there in awesome form. All the performers were
wonderful..it indeed was a magical night. Angela was
there and spoke and it was so heartwarming to hear
her speak because the stroke that she suffered has
left her limited in speech and movement. But I hope
God blesses her to speak and sing again. I love my
Angelita del Noche (Angel of the Night.) Angie and
I did Narada's Xmas party every year for ten years.
Okay we're getting ready for the Narada
Christmas Jam...which is going to be at the Marin
Civic Center...I love the Holidayz because I can work
at home and not fly around like crazy. I want to pay
Tribute to my friend and producer Sonny Padilla (ESP)
who passed away quietly in his home last week. Sonny
is going to be missed greatly. I have a lot of memories
of Sonny around my home and in my heart.

I have been asked to go to France to do a Sylvester
project with French producers...many people have asked
me to do covers of Sylvesters music. So maybe it is
time. It was also the late Weathergirl, Izora Armstead's
wishes for Martha Wash, myself and her to do a Syl's
Girls reunion. It never happened before Zora went
to heaven, but Martha and I have done shows together
and you all know how I feel about Ms Martha. We even
did a Sylvester Tribute year before last. That was
