I'll take a Manhattan...or two. Made perfect with jazz, to boot.

A magical night of music from @declanorourke & the 10 piece O'Rourkestra!

I was changed. Very changed.

It's cathartic.
It's poetic.
It's majestic.
It's realistic.

This is from when Prince won the Grammys lifetime achievement award. It's especially apropos since we lost Prince last year.
