Tonight I, alongside @kathryngallagher & @treshelleedmond (revival B'way cast) got to honor @theduncansheik at the @newyorkmusicalfestival’s 2016 Gala. I got to be the lucky girl who first sang “Don’t Do Sadness/Blue Wind” on a Broadway stage in 2006 and I’m so happy to still get to sing it today. Wherever you go, whatever you do, it’s important to stop and thank those who have transformed your journey.
Duncan helped me record my demos, helped me get my publishing deal, believed in me and told me I could when I was so green I didn’t know how to cope.
To be the woman I am now and go to a gala and sing with him and say thank you for everything – that is more than full circle, it is truly everything to me.
Here’s some video of us singing tonight (the full thing is on my Facebook). I am so grateful to Duncan and the whole of the Spring Awakening and Broadway community for being the brightest light for me in this strange world. #iDontDoSadness #NYMFGala2016 (at Edison Ballroom)
