An Exceptional Night!
What can I say except that the Soul Train Awards was exceptional! My very special thanks goes to Paxton Baker and Centic/BET and Soul Train Music Awards voting committee for the nomination of "In The Mood to Take it Slow". A special thanks to Meli'sa Morgan who walked the Red Carpet with me and was a true professional. She joined me on all the interviews. Although we didn't win, it was a great time! Also thanks to Aalyah Duncan for keeping us organized on the Red Carpet and excellent publicity service through the course of events. Special thanks to Kim and the staff at UNLV for the interview and for the years of support. To my friends and supporters. I truly love and appreciate you all!

Soul Train Awards Nomination!
I am thrilled to receive a Soul Train Music Awards nomination for "Best Contemporary Jazz Performance" for my song "In The Move To Take It Slow", featuring the beautiful and amazing singer Meli'sa Morgan! Thanks to BET, Soul Train and Paxton Baker for this recognition. I never take anything for granted in this business especially in my genre...so to be recognized for my jazz music for almost 30 yrs in this industry is a blessing! Thanks to Demonte Posey aka "The Prof " for producing this album and track. Special thanks to Meli'sa for gracing her sultry voice which took this song to the next level! Thanks to my team for all of the continuous hard work: Fareed, Dahlia Sizer, Aalyah Duncan, Will Holton, My Band and my label Shanachie. Most importantly thank YOU, my fans for taking this journey with me for this length of time and supporting my project "The Morning After - A Musical Love Journey"! Regardless whether I win or not, the respect I continue to receive will go a long way and carry out into my legacy!

Orlando, with Love!
I would like to take this moment to acknowledge that due to unforeseen circumstances that were out of my control, my scheduled performance in Orlando this past weekend was cancelled. Hopefully I will return to Orlando at a later date. I thank the Orlando Cares organization for the potential opportunity and hopefully we'll work together in the future. To my Orlando fans, you are not forgotten and we'll make something happen in the future!
All the best!

As I reflect today on the passing of the great Ricky Lawson, I am reminded how precious life is! May we celebrate his memory along with those who have passed away this year, and also appreciate our loved ones who are with us today! "Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude."
- Denis Waitley
