8.25.14: The Youth Cultural Arts Foundation (YCAF) presented Paul Williams to a packed house of youth passioned in the arts from all over California. I was honored to be Paul’s invited guest to panel and perform with Paul and Grammy Award winning songwriters Dave Merenda (“I Will Remember You” Sarah Mclachlian) and Chris Caswell (Daft Punk). The young talent was amazing! Generations evaporated as we welcomed them into the songwriters tribe! As we reflected in the days after, the evening’s joy lingered well after we said goodnight to the capacity crowd.There is nothing more rewarding than to change a young person’s history, if you can.
