And why his shows aren’t simply a concert, but as she states a: “big musical love fest!” More ›

A Life Too Short, A Life Well Lived; Country Singer Kevin Sharp

During an illustrious career, which now spans over four-plus decades, Barry Manilow and his music has touched the lives of millions. For some it’s been momentary happiness while singing along to Copacabana. For others, I dare say the majority of others, his music, original and that which he reinvents with his own unique style, the inspiration it creates and his own persona has made a lasting and timeless impression.

The Book

One year ago today I officially became a published author!

The year it took to write my book, ‘It Could Be Magic… How The Music Of Barry Manilow Changed My Life and the Journey Ever Since’ was filled with stops, starts, highs and lows. At times I thought it would never be finished, other times I wondered why I was doing it. However, the one constant throughout the process was the catharsis I felt in writing each word. Many ghosts were addressed and placed in perspective allowing me to move on and get over. More ›

Loving Christmas Music!

The second Santa makes his entrance at the Thanksgiving Day Parade, Christmas music fills my ears. Most people have a favorite, I have a few. Each song conjures sweet (and bittersweet) memories of days gone by. Many offer solemn reminders of why there is Christmas, the true meaning that doesn’t include marathon shopping trips. And there are those that give forever romantics like me hope that one day I’ll bask before holiday lights, warmed by a roaring fire, with the love of my life at my side! More ›

The Infinite Power Of Music

I know first hand the powerful ability music has the mind; so much so that I wrote a book about how the music of Barry Manilow changed my life - shameless self-promotion It Could Be Magic! - Yet in the busyness of life, we lose sight of what’s impacting our psyche, until by design or need we’re struck with a reminder and suddenly the music is all we hear.
