Embrace Who You Are and KNOW Your Value

It’s been a wild week here on the East Coast. Fortunately we were spared
the worst of Hurricane Sandy, but too many others were not so lucky. If you
were (or still are) affected by this unbelievable storm, please know that I am
thinking of you and hoping that you and your loved ones are safe.

It’s moments like these that remind me how incredibly lucky I am to get to
do what I do and love so much on a daily basis, how fortunate I am to know
so many amazing people and artists and that it truly is the people who
matter most. We work hard, we strive for success, but really, at the end of
the day, what matters most are the people.

Unfortunately, artists (people) and the art they create are often sorely
undervalued. But can any of us really imagine a world without art?
Without music? What kind of world would that be?

I want you to know that I value you! Embrace who you are as an artist
and on those days when you are feeling the nagging voice of uncertainty,
close your eyes and try to picture that world without art, without music,
and know that the value of what you are contributing is simply too huge
to be measured!

All my best,
