A few weeks ago I had a great time going to see Robyn with a group of friends. The Hollywood Bowl is one of my favorite venues for outdoor concerts and I'm already looking for tickets to another show this summer.
The Hollywood Bowl is the quintessential summer in Los Angeles experience and Ella the unparalleled singer. What was most inspiring was hearing about the first time she sang publicly. She was backstage at Amateur Night at the Apollo theater preparing for a dance performance. The person ahead of her was a dancer whose skill she knew she could not match. So, at the last moment, she decided to sing a song instead. The rest, as they say, is history.
It was an awesome evening of friends, yummy snacks, wine, and great jazz at the "To Ella With Love" concert last night. It was my first time hearing the Count Basie Orchestra and Dee Dee Bridgewater and they were incredible! Loved Dee Dee's stage presence....simply amazing. And I loved YUNA's singing too. Woke up a little sleepy, but so worth it for such a great night.
went to Hollywood Bowl to see John Williams. Had a box of Porto's potato balls. When the Star Wars theme song played and the crowd's lightsabers all went up at the same time, I was thinking that might've been one of the best moments in my life, potato ball in hand.
