Going to NY and reflecting on my Grandpa's funeral that happened today...

Well today I'm going to NY and I'm going out there to be with family but I'll also be going out there to network with some people in the music business. I'm excited to make new connections and to meet with new people. I'm always excited to be in new places and to experience new things.

On a more somber note...today was my grandpa's funeral and even though it was a sad experience and I cried quite a bit it was great to see a bunch of family and cousins here that helped support each other. Its always moments like these that make us reflect on who we are and what we have become. This is my fathers father so he essentially started this whole lineage! If it wasn't for him I would not be here. He raised four amazing sons that are still living here and carrying on his legacy. He can now live with his wife who passed away six months ago. I'm not sure who reads these blogs but I hope they make you think about how important family is...something that touched me today was how they shared about how my grandpa felt about how you had to leave fear behind in your life and that you just had to live life and you just had to be! I have learned so much about that this year! I have worked so hard on my album...and I plan on continuing to work so hard still to achieve more and more. I have so many dreams and mile stones that I want to achieve in the music industry. I want to do it so that my stories and messages can touch other peoples lives! My grandpa was a story teller and an amazing writer and this gift was passed on to me but the only difference is I'm a song writer. Anyways instead of being sad I'm happy because he really did live an amazing life and we all have so much to look forward to in life. He left behind an amazing family. He struggled a lot in his life but he over came a lot of things. What an example he was to all of us.
