"I feel empowered by singing the music of Piaf in these difficult times. If anyone knew what suffering was, Piaf did. She endured a mother's abandonment, growing up on the streets, not having enough to eat, the occupation of the Nazis, and loss of love - yet she overcame these challenges through singing about them. Though she's indubitably French, her will to live is universally inspiring. Whatever one's nationality, Piaf's message of great passion for life and love endures and is as poignant today as the day she died, 40 years ago."
"Seeing you perform made me want to go back to Paris for the first time in 50 years."

to recommend a wonderful company called "Event
Me" run by Volker and Dietmar Detering. In my quest for an
audience for my show "Reflecting on Marlene," which I performed
at Judy's Chelsea four times in October, I turned to Volker. In a matter
of hours his VIP e-mail list provided me three charming German female
bankers for my performance that night. They were exactly the kind of clientele
I had hoped to attract. His idea of culling the exact performances with
potential audience members' interests,
is a brilliant and creative one.
I hope you'll want to make use of this unique service. Visit them on the web at www.eventme.com.
Only in New York City, right?
Wishing you all the happiest of holidays,
