re: ANOTHER FAMILY WEDDING
SO–another of my relatives has announced his “impending” marriage. Congratulations my MAN! The “groom to be” is the multi-talented MIGUEL the Grammy Nominee who has worked with such music legends as Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. Miguel, like I said, needs to sign a deal with Sony Records or Richard Branson (Virgin Records). Universal/MCA is broke, I think, as Jay Leno has been paying his tv show band out of his own pocket. (Also Universal/MCA hasn’t even been “promoting” its new acts. Warner Bros/Interscope, in my opinion” is “drained”). Congrats to Miguel and his lovely bride to be (a pretty Caucasian woman from Vermont).
Live Long and Prosper My Man !…
Your Favorite Relative, Renee AB 9 aka The Erma Foundation aka Erma French Perfume and Design
