I always love coming "home" to Los Angeles. Although I grew up in Orange County, I attended UCLA and my grandparents home is located right off Laurel Canyon, so LA is a special place to me. I woke up this morning and looked out my hotel window and saw the bright blue skies and sunshine and instantly had a smile on my face. Although Nashville has captured my heart, there is nothing like a pretty day in Southern California.
Our flight was smooth and uneventful (just the way I like them!). Ironically enough, Peter Cetera was sitting next to us on the flight. He was flying to Los Angeles to catch another flight to Manilla for a concert. In the "it's a small world" category – Kim Keyes had just called Amy while we were waiting to board our plane to say she was flying to Manilla for a concert with Peter. And then up walked Peter.
I told Amy that if I was a good "blogger" I would have taken a picture of the two of them together and posted it on this blog and twitter but that I felt awkward asking them to pose. She laughed and said, "I'm so glad you didn't ask"… So, no pic.
In another "small world" moment, when we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by Amy's stage manager from the Heart In Motion and House of Love tours. We hadn't seem him in years but when he heard Amy was coming from Nashville he waited in the lobby to see us. He is now working with Beyonce, who is also performing at this event tonight.
This morning we are meeting the producer of Three Wishes for breakfast and to catch up with him and to dream/scheme a bit. It will be good to see him.
The event is tonight. I've been told this event is a big deal in Hollywood. Lots of movie and music stars will be there…. and me. I will try to sneak a few discreet pictures if I can.
More to come….
