IíM ALWAYS looking for ways to reinvigorate myself when Iím on a performing spree. As I write, Iím in Southern California, getting ready to start hopping on tour stops until March 19. True, it isnít a long touring period, and with planes, cars and hotels, each stop will feel like a blur.
AH, FEBRUARY, the month of love, is upon us. Valentineís Day is just around the corner. Plans are being made for romantic dinners, bouquets of flowers, the works. My brother, sister-in-law and husband are planning, too, but not in the way that you think.
ITíS BEEN a relatively quiet 2011 as far as gigs are concerned. My next big concert wonít be until Valentineís Day, when Iíll be in the beautiful city of Bangkok (at the Queen Sirikit Convention Center, performing with Gerard Salonga and the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra), so Iíve been busying myself with other stuff.
