I’ve loved Barry since I was a teenager. Such emotion in his music and complete love. I just added a music player to my blog. It’s on the bottom left side. The first song, of course had to be, I Made it Through the Rain. The main reason for my blog’s name. I was starting out blogging and listening to Barry in my iTunes. Then BAM, it hit me! Making it Through the Rain. I haven’t ‘made’ it yet, but I am ‘making’ it through the rain.
Hit play and make your heart happy!
Many moons ago I was invited to see his pre-concert, concert at Sony Studios, for his upcoming tour. It was invite only with maybe 100 people. They had it known, unbeknownst to me, that I would get up and sing, Can’t Smile Without You, with Barry. I am sad to say I did not do it. My one and only true regret in my life. 😦
Oh how I wish I had said yes. I was wearing leg braces and using crutch canes. I was petrified about falling and having no confidence in myself, I felt I had to politely decline. **bashes head against wall…
If only life had a re-do button. Sadly, it does not. NEVER, say no to something you are able to do, because the chance may never come again.
But… The evening was so amazing. I still had the time of my life. Just meeting him for the quick minute is a moment I will never forget!!
Thank you Desi for taking me and thank you Barry Manilow for your amazing talent. A true fan for life!!
To Tracy with love
