This excerpt from Toni Morrison really resonated with me, it’s great food for thought. Live your life – set the tone and theme – change it when you feel like it. Don’t worry about other people’s expectations or opinions – we all have our own lives to live and shouldn’t waste time trying to conform what others think our journey should be about – because it may make them feel more comfortable.

It was a packed house with a crowd for our highly anticipated performance. The energy was potent at Bryan Rabin and Adam XII Present: Giorgio’s A Modern Discotheque on the Sunset Strip it caused first ever power outage as we were about to take the stage for our mini performance. Shalamar ® celebrated the debut single release “SlowDance.” Not to be cliche’ but it was truly a night to remember with new members Nate Allen Smith, Rosero McCoy and everyone who came out to party and celebrate with us,
She is my first born – and today is always a special day. Happy Birthday to my intelligent, beautiful, loving, kind, quirky and awesome daughter Lauren. Time flies! It’s a blessing to see her on her journey blossoming, growing and finding her passion using her creativity and intellect. Lauren had a brief stint with Ford Models in high school – but decided modeling wasn’t for her. She’s always been a great role model for her brother Arie – who learned to hit the books hard watching her when he was a tiny tot. Lauren doesn’t like spectacle and as I’ve often communicated with regard to my children. I always ask permission to share this part of my life because it brings a spotlight on them they don’t really care much for. To celebrate publicly with class and with grace always respecting their wishes is paramount. Here’s to Lauren!!

I first met Debbie Harry in Vienna, Austria for Lifeball several years ago. It was just two weeks ago that I was surprised that she would introduce my performance at charity gala ‘Night of A Thousand Gowns’; here we are again, this time – I have a photo!
