I had an amazing night last night headlining my first duo cabaret with Samantha Cutler. It was a lot of fun to star in our own show that we collaborated on and put together. ( of course with the guidance of our music director) Special thanks to all our special friends who performed and came to see the show. Here is the first video of many that will be posted over the next couple of days.
