With two songs up for consideration for a Grammy award and a feature article published on me at the same time by The Jazz In M.E.E. Magazine, such excitement in my life has left me overwhelmed with humbleness. Especially as I am continually receiving so many accolades from my peers, and from people I hold a lot of respect for. The most exciting highlight of the week was receiving an email from my dear friend, songstress Dionne Warwick, congratulating me for being considered for a Grammy.
