John and I had the incredible pleasure of seeing an opera called, “Everest” last night at The Kauffman Performing Arts Center. Until last year's fatal avalanche, the deadliest year in recorded history was 1996: 15 people died, eight of them in a single blizzard. That disaster has been chronicled in at least five books, two documentaries — and now, a one-act opera. While it has never been on my bucket list to climb Mt. Everest, many of us have our mountains for which we’re willing to risk everything in order to reach what is for us the “summit”. The important thing is that at the end of the day, whether we conquer it, or are conquered by it, we should feel so very much alive and grateful at having been able to at least try.
This opera was thought-provoking, emotional and inspiring and is something that I would highly recommend. youtu.be/Aw5x0mFDqA0 #everest #opera #broadway #kauffmanperformingartscenter #kansascity

On the spur-of-the-moment, John and I hopped a flight to Chicago to see my friend, Mariza who was performing at the City Winery Chicago last night. It was a wonderful show from an amazing Portuguese singer known for her emotionally charged Fado music. But last night, she brought the best of the best musicians from Portugal and Europe, including a very talented young female bassist from America, and they performed some traditional Portuguese standards that were not fado. What a great show.
Mariza and I met in 2015 in Serbia where we shared the stage with Slobodan Trkulja & Balkanopolis (who invited us) and others from around the world to raise money for people who were homeless because of a major flood catastrophe. She's currently touring the east coast for the next week and I hope you'll check her out if you're nearby NY or Boston. It was so good to see and hear my dear friend! #mariza #fado #soul #jazz #portugal #music #oletaadams #bass #serbia

Today I was greeted with the wonderful news that another artist included one of my songs on his LIVE DVD/Album. Tino Martin, a Dutch artist recorded his big concert at the Ziggodome in Holland some time ago and he included, “Window Of Hope” (together with the Dutch gospel choir, “The New Gospel Sensation”) as a part of the show. Het Concert van Mijn Dromen XL (The Concert Of My Dreams, XL) was recently released and is currently number ONE on the Dutch charts. Tino Martin has a beautiful voice and I couldn’t be more proud to have someone record a song that I penned 20+ years ago. Make sure you give it a listen. Morning by morning new mercies I see!
