"Lost in Music"...Found in France by Rachel Walker
"Lost In Music"...Found In France.
Merci Beaucoup! (Thank You Very Much)
I have just returned to NYC after an amazing 10 City Disco Funk Tour with Kool & The Gang, performing as 1/3 of the legendary disco funk group Sister Sledge with none other than Joni Sledge herself. The crowds in France were on FIRE!!! I have grown so much and gained a number of life long friends in the process. There are a few key people that I have to thank for playing such an instrumental role in making this dream a reality:
Joni Sledge: Your grace, beauty, strength and talent are admirable. Thank you for being so kind and for being an amazing teacher and mentor.
Deb Brown aka "The Deb": Thank you for taking me under your wing and being such an amazing tour manager. And you know "I'm so serious right now!" (smile)
Jaye Watts: Thank you for your friendship and sisterhood during this trip. I couldn't have picked a better person to experience this with. (STRONG shoulder shake)
Shout-out to all the members of Kool & The Gang, All The Musicians, Stage Crew, Tour Managers, Catering, Bus Drivers. You guys rock!
Dawn West, Jarard Isler and Tonia Bellamy: Thanks for your words of wisdom and for challenging me to step out on faith with conviction. No regrets.
Erika Correa, Sonia Hunte, Peridot Smith, Kadian Langlais and Amanda "Paradyme" Stockham: Ladies, thank you so much for your encouragement and unwavering support.
My Family: Mom, Dad & Zee, Thank you for your love and support. I hear you cheering me on no matter where I am in the world.
Special shout-out to all The Fans and people of France who showed the most amazing love, warmth and hospitality.
I had the time of my life getting "Lost In Music". I found out so much about myself along the way. I'm looking forward to future opportunities...the journey continues...Stay Tuned.
