Sergio Mendes Grammy Nomination

Excited is an understatement – Found out today that “Magic” by Sergio Mendes has been nominated for a ‪#‎Grammy‬ in the “Best World Music” category! I’m honored to be a part of such a great album of music by a legendary artist.

From the writing to the playing to the finished project, we had a blast and created magic! We danced, laughed and made, what I believe is, a truly great album. The list of guest artists and studio musicians on this album is astounding.

If you’re a member of the Academy, we’d all appreciate your support by voting for us once the ballots arrive. If you’re not a member, we’d appreciate your thoughts and prayers in support of a win. And if you don’t own “Magic”, pick up a copy to hear the magic for yourself!

See you at the Grammys :-)

DWTS Season 19 Finale

I can’t believe it but we’re at the end of the season already! Next week, November 24 & 25 will be the conclusion of Season 19 of Dancing With The Stars :-( We’ve had an absolute blast. I’m excited to see who America votes to win the #DWTS Mirror Ball trophy this season. I absolutely love being a part of a show that has such incredibly talented people, from the crew to the production staff, the pro dancers & the amazing musicians with whom I get to share the stage with each week. As I expected, this season was full of surprises, twists and turns. The elimination nights were especially surprising. You never know how the country’s gonna vote.  Here are some shots from Season 19 -
