Nominee – Latin Female Singer/Songwriter of the Year “Jungle e Maree” – 16th annual LA Music Awards
My teaching tour in Italy was really amazing. I met great singers with such enthusiasm and I am looking forward to work with them again next June/July. Between travelling the “Italian boot”, with trains and flights, I am almost done with a new tv “undisclosed” project, recording my album and publishing my thirds vocal book. Tired? Yes! Happy? Yes, Si, Yes!
I can’t wait to go back to California, smell the Ocean breeze of my “corner of heaven” in Venice Beach and deep my feet in the warm sand.
