1. THANK YOU to the New York Society for Ethical Culture for the honor of performing in the Sunday Platform! An extra special dose of gratitude to music director Davíd Gracia and guest of honor, civil rights activist and artist Angeline Butler. Thanks to all of you who have signed up for my weekly newsletter!

2. Vocal Coaching! Never would I have thought to link MLK with Abba (kudos to you if you get the song reference in the subject heading), but it's true. We all have a "song" in our hearts that desires to be expressed, sometimes literally, or via other forms like dancing, painting, writing, oratory, dramaturgy, architecture, philosophy, geography, anthropology, and in MLK's case - shifting culture through public policy. Your literal voice serves as a powerful portal for your symbolic voice in the world. 

Would you like to feel more grounded and confident in the dynamic capacities of your voice? Invest in a session with me. Clients leave my sessions feeling revitalized, inspired, more in touch with themselves, and a deeper understanding of what their voices can do. Here is more of what you all have to say about my courses and coaching. Thanks for your feedback! Contact me at to book a coaching session, or a free 15 minute exploratory phone consultation.

3. Thanks to those who have purchased a Lush Tongue merch item! You can support my platform by purchasing t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, tote bags, and more. Here is the link:

4. Save the Date: The Open Sing  is happening on Sunday, February 9 and all other second Sundays of the month!
