Taste of Times Square

Want to talk about one of the most amazing things i've done since living in New York? Great! Me too! This past Monday, Joelle and I were so fortunate to be asked to participate in the Taste of Times Square event and perform for World Heritage Cultural Center. I will say, we had no idea what to expect, but it was amazing! We arrived to all of 46th street and the Times Square area blocked with tables and tables and TABLES of Times Square restaurants! We all know I do not discriminate when it comes to food and this was absolutely no exception! We were able to hang around the WHCC stage for a while before and after performing, making this experience truly remarkable. I performed the tap dance that I will be taking to Miss NY and Joelle sang the Leonard Cohen song made popular by the Canadian Tenors "Hallelujah."

We were followed by some great acts! There were salsa dancers, Bollywood performers, Rappers and so much more. World Heritage Cultural Center's goal was to bring different types of entertainment to the Taste of Times Square and they did a fabulous job! It really is hard to believe that I had the chance to perform in Times Square. It just goes to show that one tiny conversation can lead to a world of opportunities. Thank you Sattie and JuanCarlos of WHCC- we really appreciate you including us in such a big way!

  1. Jeff Buckley did a version of Hallelujah, too. It's pretty awesome! This is Linz, by the way. I realize you probably don't know who 'Tancy' is. :-)
