Valentine’s Day is for lovers, and no one does love better than Broadway. Here are a few of my favorite romantic showtunes to set the soundtrack to Cupid’s holiday.

New Year’s is getting farther behind in the rearview mirror, and February is fast approaching. Have you kept up with the resolutions you set for yourself this year? Even if you’ve had a slip up or two, don’t worry! The year is just beginning, and you’ve got plenty of time to become your best self.

Christmas is nearly here, so I wanted to share some of my favorite Christmas albums with you. The holiday has inspired the best musicians for generations, so there’s no shortage to choose from! If you loved my album “Yesterday Once More,” you’ll want to work these classic albums into your holiday traditions.

“My Shining Hour” was composed by Harold Arlen with lyrics by Johnny Mercer for the film, The Sky’s the Limit in 1943. Originally performed by Glen Gray with Eugenie Baird,“My Shining Hour” is a song that has endured for generations. 

I included it as track 14 on my album, Yesterday Once More”for this very reason. It’s truly a timeless piece filled with soulful yearning and passion.
