It was an incredible night and a lifetime experience I will always remember! A shout out and Thank You to the fans of the CBS-TV show, The Young and the Restless, for their emails to the show, fan sites and soap magazines about my songs included in four of their episodes. My songs "I'm Still Breathin'", "My One Desire" and " Hot Stuff" were featured in important scenes. I was thrilled to find out that the shows' avid fans wrote in to ask "Who is the music artist for those songs?" Blues Thunder album recording update -- I have been working with a great team of engineers in their studios.
