HERE'S TO LIFE, HERE'S TO LOVE, HERE'S TO YOU....

The third track on my album, Yesterday Once More, is an original medley arranged from three classic, beautiful songs.

When I sing “Here’s to Life Medley: Here’s to Life/A Lot of Livin’ to Do/Sweet Happy Life,” my smile comes instantly! These three songs embody so much of what life really is about – keeping a positive spirit, through thick and thin!

Whenever I hear the song, “Yesterday Once More” by The Carpenters, I’m transported back to the days dancing at the disco! I spent the 1970s in and out all the most popular disco clubs in Los Angeles – boy, was it fun! I’ve always loved dancing – it’s one of my favorite parts of performing on stage. Learning the steps and swinging to the beat has been a way of life for me for years.

This brilliant song, universal for just about everyone in the world, says to take it slow if you want to make the relationship last.   

While falling in love with my husband Jack, the song kept playing in my head! That we should take it ‘nice ’n easy.’ That ‘we were on the road to romance, yes, but that we should make the stops along the way.’
