Here's the woman that makes me breathe hard

She's kicking my butt to get it in shape. I've been vegetarian for quite a while, and use a stand up desk - with a treadmill at work, but never had a real workout routine. So I got a trainer Jan Hendershott to whip me into shape.

Too early to be singing Christmas songs? Not at my house.



The new Christmas album by Human Nature is available in stores now. I sing a duet of "Sleigh Ride" with the guys. It's also available as a single on Amazon and iTunes.

They are incredible and I had such a blast recording our duet "Sleigh Ride".

Human Nature is Australia's #1 group.
Here's what Music City News had to say...
On The Christmas Album, Human Nature recorded versions of such seasonal standards as “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)”, “Santa Claus is Coming To Town”, “White Christmas,” “Sleigh Ride,” and “Winter Wonderland,” all of which are stamped with Human Nature’s inimitable style and groove, with that special touch of soul they have. “Every year it seemed there was something about us doing Christmas and holiday songs that was a perfect fit,” explains Andrew. “We’ve collected a repertoire of Christmas songs over the years, but we just wanted to choose some of our favorite songs and also some songs that people may not be too familiar with.”

Among those lesser-known or forgotten gems are the Jackson 5’s “Give Love on Christmas Day” and Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas.” Human Nature put their own spin on the classic tracks such as combining ‘Silent Night’ and ‘O Holy Night’ into one beautifully realized performance and a stunning a-capella take on “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” There’s an upbeat collaboration on “Sleigh Ride” with Robin Meade, a duet with Smokey Robinson on “Please Come Home for Christmas,” and a sweeping rendition of “Amazing Grace” with The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. The album also carries an original number, “Christmas Without You.” The song, penned by Andrew, drips in the Motown sound which is now infused with Human Nature’s unique vocal DNA. “They’re definitely among the most loved Christmas songs of all time on the record, but there are some surprises on this album as well.” explains Andrew.

Check it out... not to early start singing Christmas songs!!!
