That is all for now. I hope you are all doing well, and looking forward to hearing you all on Youtube singing my music (What, you think I dont watch those ?!?!?! PLLLLLEASSSEEEE). Actually, I MAY do a special section on my website, where we post some of your YouTube performances of my music, so if you have posted them, and I havent seen them yet, email me the link. I am looking forward. Only the Best, SA

What else ? I went to the workshop of 'Xanadu' on Sunday with Jesse Vargas. Not much to report on that, as it was a private workshop, and it is not right to view my opinions, but I read the NY Post this morning about Jane possibly not doing the show, and I will say, they need her. She sells this show. It is actually an incredible project for her. She has a great chance of getting in on that Tony Nomination, believe it or not. She is that good. Her voice is in top shape, her comedy is in top shape, and she can roller skate like nobody's business. I mean, without her, well ...let's just say, they really need her. I was extremely impressed. The show is campy, and I do think that if they keep there entire cast that they had for the workshop, theatre people will really enjoy it. I don't know about the rest of the public, I really don't. Yet, everyone really has something to do, and with that amazing of a cast, you can't loose with everyone having something that you enjoyed. Is the cast, and the fun music enough ? Time will tell. Already, maybe I've said too much. I am happy I went, and found myself smiling a lot.
Hmmm, that seems to be all, sadly. No new updates on 'Piece' to tell you. We are still sifting through theatres, and hopefully some news can be announced shortly. Ohhh, our next 'New Voices' is going to be incredible. I love my cast, and my guest composer. I just need to finalize my guest host, and I will send that press release out. Very exciting. It's time for the gym now. I have been going four to five times a week, for this entire month. I am proud of myself. There are times I hate it, but I need to do it. For me. I find myself sleeping so much better at night, and with the exception of a small cold I had for one day, I have felt extremely healthy, which is a surprise. I always get sick around this time. Good times, great oldies. I hope your all doing well. I think I may be heading back into the studio soon to record some new music. This time, sadly, it will be me singing. Just some rough demos. I hope thats ok !!!! Ok, everyone have a great day. Get out there and do it. Best, SA

So, Life has been crazy, in a GREAT way. I can't say much. I actually have been told to say NOTHING, BUT, I 'WILL' say something, because ...well, I have a big mouth ... This week proved, that when it rains, it pours. I will say this, and this only. 'Piece' will be gearing up for a few regional theatres, starting in a couple of months (crazy, right ???). We will be starting small, as well. Giving us a place to start, and look at the show on its feet, and then moving to some larger theatres. That is all I can say as of now. Yet, it's starting. Again, as of two weeks ago, it seemed as if there was nothing for us. Then, out of nowhere ...it started raining, and then, shortly after, it started pouring. Very exciting. I look forward to finally being able to see the audience react and learn from them what works and what doesn't. Tara and I are very open to change, and creating the best show possibly, so it will be really rewarding, and of course, I will let you know updates when they happen.
Outside of 'Piece,' some other exciting things have been happening for me. This I will definatly keep my mouth closed on, though, otherwise I will be knocking on wood every ten minutes. Yet, life is treating me well, right now. I am extremely excited by the possibilities that this may lead itself too, and if it doesn't happen, I can say I knew the excitment of 'what if' up to this point, and will keep striving to feel this again. I am off to brunch with 'someone' special. Have a great day ...xo -SA

So, our Developmental reading for 'Piece' went fantastic !!! We really have a great product in front of us. I can't wait to get it out there. wink, wink.
So, after putting up three songs for sale in sheet music format, I have been asked by the MEN for more material for them. So, within the next two or three weeks, I will be putting up 'Kiss the Air' and the new song 'Now.' Both will be piano based. I hope that makes you boys happy =-)
That seems to be all for now. I hope your all doing well, and healthier then I. Wishing you only the best. xoxo -SA
ps. Monday Nights, New Voices Alumni, Nikki Renee Daniels, will be going on for Fantine tomorrow in Les Miz. Go cheer her on. I wish I could be there.
