This past Thursday, I had some friends checking on me. On top of the public release of my first feature-length documentary and being on day 4 of a 6-day film shoot, this would have been my mother’s 75th birthday.
I picked that release date for Commit to the Song on purpose. Mom was always supportive of my art – standing in the front row of smoky bars, night clubs, and any venue where I was performing, or making sure to attend any film-related screenings or events that I was involved with. She would have been proud of this film.
So after completing day 4 of filming and going over the next day’s shot list with the director, I joined a number of friends for Mexican food and margaritas in celebration of Mom.
Thanks to all of you who have shown your friendship, love, and support and continue to do so. Thanks for the kind words on the film. Thanks for watching, and thanks for listening.
