The Tony Awards!

I haven’t been to a play in years, that’s one of the reasons why I enjoyed watching the Tony Awards. Even though I missed part of the show. Most of us remember William Shakespeare from school. Some of you have played on stage. Nevertheless, I was more interested in movies and I did have a small role in one years ago.

I was watching Kevin Spacey (who was also the host) do an imitation of former president Clinton. At first I didn’t recognize Kevin until I kept looking. It was funny.  I read from usmagazine.com that Kevin is a Tony Award winner too. I didn’t know that. And Hillary was also mentioned. There were more presenters too. It was good to see Bette Miller because I wondered what she has been doing in at least the past year. She won her first Tony award as Dolly Levi, in the hilarious revival of Hello Dolly!

I congratulate all the winners!

You know they’ll be talking about everything, including what the stars wore. And by the way, some of the dresses were stunning as usual. The guys wore fabulous too, but the ladies outshine.

James Earl Jones was scheduled to receive a special Lifetime Achievement award. I  missed that part. He was great on Broadway and movies. He and the late Yul Brynner are among my favorite actors of all time. There are so many talented performers and many have won awards tonight. But I wonder how many of you out there know where the name ”Tony” comes from? It is in honor of Mary Antoinette Perry. She was an American actress and director. And don’t forget Hamilton. Goodnight!

Come together

It would be beautiful if people got along. They would never argue or complain. They would see eye to eye on so many levels, but we don’t live in a perfect world and we’re not perfect. Nevertheless, we should as people get along better. I know some of you have been hurt so bad by certain people or individuals you really can’t stand being around them at all. Who hasn’t gone through that? But our world is full of so many other people who are not that way at all. There are so many songs about people coming together that we’ve all heard over the years. Music can bring people together. I love Santana, but I haven’t heard any new songs by him in years. I have all the old ones.

So I went to his website and guess what I found! The original Santana band are getting together for the first time since 1973. Santana IV CD came out last year. A new album came out in April. This band has the most soulful Latin blues rock songs by any group or singer. No one does it better. But you all have your favorites. Let love shine in. Check it out.
