STAY SAFE, EVERYONE!

''Trying to stay positive in these uncertain times. It’s no fun having performances cancelled, but there are worse things in life. So when I close my eyes I‘m back in Curaçao like earlier this year (before the virus). Stay safe and stay at home, everyone. Much continued respect for those working so hard to help heal and keep us all safe.
P.s. ‘Paradise’ is one of my favorite songs I wrote and recorded many years ago."
