New page on my blog – selfies galore – gallery through the years

I have placed a new page on my official blog (selfies are a good record of one’s state of mind) – which contain some of the pictures I’ve taken during the making of musical and film achievements – a general history, some definite nostalgia – there are many pics missing from earlier years, which I’ll add when I find them – but… this was a bit of fun for me, and has brought back so much memory, struggle, triumph, sadness, joy and generally experiences that I’ve treasured — comments are welcome; and questions too, if you feel inspired.

Shape of My Heart – JCD Cover

I adore this song….  its just, beautiful – very elegant and such a sweet melody. I took the entire day and enjoyed singing… just simply recorded in my (unpadded) humble office – no sound equipment – just, Garage band and a set of headphones. I pray one day, I can record in a beautiful studio again…. if anyone listening/reading this post wants to give me that chance… don’t be  shy – use the CONTACT form !

No rights reserved. All rights belong to the composers, musicians and recording company’s for the original version. No royalty or fee is due; or, charged. This is simply a beautiful cover – I love singing… !

Backing track (these two wonderful musicians are hero’s in my book – revolutionizing the classically trained to do ‘out of the box’ work – they seriously rock – and I adore them – I hope my humble singing effort does justice to their beautiful work):  2CELLOS – Shape Of My Heart [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

Dami for Eurovision – Update #2 – the outcome…. ??

FULL FINAL: Eurovision Grand Final 2016

And the winner was…..  ???

2. AUSTRALIA so so close dear Dami… you have done us so proud – that is amazing! Dami’s song in my humble opinion was by far the best song in the competition. And Dami, the clearest performance professionally. Regardless, she was THE WINNER in my books…. Fantastic effort, song, performance, just, everything. Loved Dami’s dress too… just stunning – an awesomely gorgeous gown – the shoes, the armlet, the whole package.


I have written this post BEFORE the Final – and the words will still mean exactly the same thing regardless of tomorrow’s (Saturday May 14th) outcome: Dami Im, you’ve done Australia proud – win or lose – you’re a wonderful young woman who has worked very hard to better yourself as a vocal & musical talent and your performances….  and I am personally saying, ‘Thank you Dami – and, bless you’ !!  You’ve done Australia, yourself and all your family, very proud. You’re a music goddess of a human, and nothing less. All the love you’ve ever received, to deal with the battles – well done for overcoming. Your talent shines – you’re a gift – a true diamond of a gem. And long may your life be, with happiness.
