What a lovely experience! Another trip to New York, London, and Italy this year has left me with ample experiences and knowledge.
I had the extreme luck to see Hamilton and Once on This Island on Broadway IN THE SAME DAY. Thank you actual Jesus for that amazing day of art and people of color thriving on the most coveted artistic stage there is. It was extremely inspiring.
Then I was off to London to have a voice lesson with Barbara Houseman. If you EVER have the opportunity to cross paths with this woman, DO IT. The combination of mindfulness and vocal health is a Godsend. I feel reset and rejuvenated. Looking forward to my upcoming singing lessons with the tools that Barbara fine-tuned. Breath support is underrated y'all.
Last but not least, I have decided to sharpen my Italian skills. So, off to Italy I went! I had the chance to go to Rome, Florence, and Milan while speaking mostly Italian with the locals. I'm not bad! Ok, to be honest I cannot conjugate my way out of a brown paper bag BUT I'm learning and getting better. Looking forward to heading back and seeing if my skills can stand the test of time.
P.S. Stay tuned for the release of a web series I just wrapped, #PrettyFunny, written by Melissa Oultan Haas and produced by You42, as well as a short film, written and directed by David Silverman. I'll also be performing in an all female stand-up showcase in the new year. All coming your way in the spring of 2019. In the mean time check out the Instagram feed for #PrettyFunny to catch up on all the shenanigans.
