I was scrambling to get everything together before I caught the train from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Station. I needed to be in the city by 5:30 pm so I could scoot my butt over to The Iguana by 6:00 pm to rehearse my two songs with Barry Levitt before the doors opened at 7:00 [...]
I am loving my life, baby!
I had so much fun making this video (once I wrestled iMovie to the ground and made it scream “Uncle!”) about my recent excursion to New York City to be at the MAC Awards (Manhattan Association of Cabaret and Clubs). My friends Shaynee Rainbolt and Terese Genecco were both nominated [...]
