So much has happened over the course of the summer and, although it was tempting to keep this blog active and running, I’m afraid that my “real life” experiences interfered with my blogging duties.
However, now that the Fall season has begun and my schedule has been finalized, I can now get back to the business of keeping MasterclassLady.Com current and alive!
Let’s see now, since last we spoke, so many wonderful people have left us, including superstar Michael Jackson and super politician, Senator Edward Kennedy. And, I must say that both the memorial and the funeral services for these gentlemen were absolutely exquisite – tastefully done.
Although both came from entirely different backgrounds, both were justifiably respected and applauded by their fans and followers for their contributions – one to the world of music and the other to the world of politics. Their legacy will remain with us for a lifetime.
Interestingly enough, Senator Kennedy was buried on Michael Jackson’s birthday, August 29th, which also happens to be the birthday of my dear father, Henry Giallonardo. My father, who was an extremely intelligent, gentle and caring individual, passed away on July 8th 2000 and I do miss him every single minute of every single day.
Additionally, Paula Abdul will no longer act as a judge on American Idol. I’m not sure if I like this scenario, but, I suppose, time will tell. I just hope and pray that this season’s show will fare better than last – I am still shaking my head over the Season 8 fiasco!
I am very excited for David Archuleta’s Christmas album, “Christmas From The Heart”, set to drop on October 13th, 2009. I can only imagine how wonderful and inspiring this CD will sound with David’s glorious voice and musical passion at the center of this recording.
And, it appears that Jason Castro has released a new song, “Let’s Just Fall In Love Again“. His fans are relentless in making certain that I have a ‘heads-up” whenever talented Jason inches a step forward to his escalating career.
“Let’s Just Fall In Love Again” is a great, great number and Jason’s voice sounds terrific. Even though his voice is not as “open” as I know it could be, Jason sings with musicality and expressiveness. And his diction is crystal clear!
Finally, there’s Jay Leno who is set to take over Prime Time every weekday with his new show. Finally, something to watch on TV at 10:00 P.M. besides Frasier and Seinfeld re-runs – although I worship these shows everytime I watch them for the zillionth time.
As always, I would like to welcome everybody back to the MCL site, as well as express appreciation for those who stopped by every so often during the course of the summer to say “hi” and left comments or news items. You can’t buy this kind of loyalty!
