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.
