South Africa is always one of my favorite trips! We played two shows at the beautiful Lyric Theater in Johannesburg. The power of music never ceases to amaze me. South Africa is so far away from where I grew up in Detroit – but the fans all know my music and were singing along! That is always humbling to me! Tom Braxton was outstanding on saxophone and I am really looking forward to playing more with him! David Lee, Al Tuner and Ron Otis were all great as always, and I was honored to have local percussionist Basi Mahlasela on my shows! I’m really looking forward to going back to Africa in September – every time I visit it’s inspiring, and I hope I can write a few more songs that remind me of my travels there. Thank you all for your support!
