Fifty Years! Can you believe it? Fifty years. Where did the time go?

I happened to be alive and celebratory when Apollo 11 landed on the moon.

In fact – I was preparing for my wedding a couple of weeks away and the Apollo 11 moon landing propelled the festive excitement to another level. Astronomical, to use an appropriate term.

Fifty years of marriage and fifty years since the Moon Landing. Both important milestones in our lives. I shall never forget it and thankfully, CNN has graciously decided to celebrate this milestone event (s).

The documentary will include never before seen 70 MM footage. What a cinematic achievement – 50 years in the making!

CNN has been airing a promo using the song “Pure Imagination” from “Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory“. I have been obsessed with this song as far back as I can remember and wonder why no one sang it, danced to it or used it in some form.

I almost had the opportunity to feature this song at one of my concerts, but stuff happens. (such as the performer forgot to rehearse it). It took me a year to recover. Seriously. It did. I am an artistic Type A person so there you have it.

CNN has featured so many wonderful documentaries and, if you haven’t seen them, you will still be able to stream them. And, oftentimes, they are repeated, especially during weekends and holidays.

Apollo 11 Documentary airs in Sunday, June 23rd on CNN at 9:00 PM. This is a revolutionary moment in our history and one that the whole family can enjoy and appreciate.

The trailer can be viewed below this article and it is breathtaking to watch.

Enjoy everyone and please let me know where you were or how you felt when Apollo landed on the moon. Over the moon, I suspect?
