I’ve been in hermit mode for a bit but that’s because I’m in the throes of producing and recording my second album, YAY!!! But I wanted to give you a little appetizer for Valentine’s Day entitled “Heaven” (Click here to download it and spread the word!) I hope you enjoy this sexy, sultry and, as my sister says, “baby-making” track!!! xo
It’s finally HERE, YAY!!!!! Directed by award-winning director Damon Jamal, feat. Jason Wesley (appearances in ArmyWives / Homeland) – we poured a lot of love, sweat and courage into it, and I’m SO excited to get to share it with you! Please click like/tweet/g+ to help me share it and spread it to the world! I hope you guys like it! ♥
This shot is taken inside タワーレコード / Tower Records Japan Shinjuku – if you had told me a year ago that the first (real) stores to sell my music would be in Japan, I probably would have laughed out loud in your face, but this… makes it all so worth it. It’s my first ever label deal! #NeverEverGiveUpOnYourDreams
I thought if I’d just gone to sleep and woke up, I’d realize it was all a dream. I rambled through the acceptance speech (or lack thereof) and am still at a loss for words. Thank you donnie l. betts for entrusting me with bringing Celie to life and for insisting that I always be myself and never imitate. Thank you Lindsay Sullivan, Jennifer Orf, Charles Packard, Patricia Wells, David Wohl and the entire Aurora Fox crew for putting on the best version of the Color Purple ever. And to the cast, the best collection of hearts and talents assembled anywhere in the world, ever: I love you.
I’m officially a member of the Actor’s Equity Association!!! I’m also understudying two plays at the Denver Center Of The Performing Arts this winter. Who knew, I’m in LOVE with acting! Stay tuned xo
Earlier this year I wrote “There For You” when a lot of people I hold dear were going through incredibly tough times. I performed it for the first time on NBC 9NEWS (KUSA)’s flood report – video below – and made it a special release on iTunes – all proceeds benefit flood victims. Download it from iTunes now and spread the word. #GivingBack
