"And thank you to all the little people..."

That's going to be a line in Sei's Grammy acceptance speech. ;) Last nite Sei played the piano in a musical fireside with Mindy Gledhill. She is a well-known performer in the LDS market. Anyway- Seiuli got to speak to youth aged 12-17 about how music inspires and influences. He started with a medley he arranged. Then he spoke for about 20 minutes (He was suppose to only speak 10, but that's like telling me not to chips and salsa from Chili's and then sitting a plate of them in front of me.) Then he closed with another medley. After that Mindy spoke and performed 3 songs. Seiuli did awesome!! I am so proud of him. AND he mentioned me a few times, so that made me feel good.
Sei spoke with Mindy afterwards to find out how he can market his music. She gave him some good advice. So... who knows what the future may hold.
Love you babe!

** If anyone can explain to me how to add music links to my blog, I will add some of Seiuli's beautiful music.

He did a beautiful job last night! I had to take Liam out, but we stayed until Mindy started singing. I was so sad I couldn't stay to hear her.

If you switched to beta, the music option is on your settings. I haven't tried it out yet.

That is so neat, what an opportunity. I bet you just love to listen to him play... I would!

How fun! Your hubby sounds so talented! I'm not sure how to put music that's not a song from the radio on a blog. Hopefully you'll figure it out because it would be fun to hear! :)

I can host a some tunes on my site... let me know which songs you want, so I can rip them from the CD at home.

Then I can send you the links to the mp3 files.

That's awesome! Josh is taking piano lessons. He's just about mastered Jingle Bells.

I like Sei's tie. My boys had ties just that color for my sister's wedding. I loved them.

I LOVE that family photo on your side bar! Where did you get that done?

Thanks Gina! We actually got it made at Walmart for $6.88!! It only took like... 17 shots to get everyone looking in the right direction. *sigh*
