All Night Long ..

Hello my dear friends,

last night was a totaly amazing night ... all night long!

Remember these?

They were my birthday gift from my daughter Ashleigh and my son-in-law Ryan and last night was the night!

The evening started off really well when we were told that we were going to be relocated from the far opposite side of the stage to almost right next to it on the right side with no extra cost!

The opening act was Cee Lo Green and he was great! ... I loved his performance.

But I can't even start to tell you how amazing it was to see Lionel Richie live in concert for first time ... I still haven't stopped singing in my head. 

He is such an amazing performer and I love his music since I heard it for the first time many years ago.

He sang songs from his time with the Commodores and saved the best to the last when he sang 'Hello' and ' All night long". The audience was off their seats for most of the night singing and dancing.

The very special part was the encore Lionel and his band gave.
He sang a song that meant so much to him and many others and he co-wrote it the late Michael Jackson. It was ...

'We are the world'.
It was beyond words as thousands of people sang this special song with him to end such an amazing night.

Last night was a night I won't forget in a very long time.
Thank you Ashleigh and Ryan and thank you Lionel Richie for such a lovely evening.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
