My hubby loves me very much! For my birthday, which was August 18th, he surprised me with tickets to see Amel Larrieux, my favorite singer, at the Jazz Alley on October 26... We just got back from the show tonight (see left photo) and I will never be able to explain in words or pictures what an incredible experience it was! This bravebird transports you to a universe of inexplicable beauty, truth and soul! She has a style and a voice all her own...she swoops, scats and takes you on excursions...she has been called a bohemian soul singer, progressive rhythm and blues vocalist, and neo-soul chanteuse...but to me, Amel Larrieux is beyond categorization. You'd have to witness her show live to understand my testimony to this goddess of sound. I lost myself at this show and found even more love and inspiration!
