“I just can’t believe it. I recorded it to bring love to the world and I’m honored to be performing it in so many countries and cities in 2016. My current band is just amazing. They are great singers and the very best musicians who replicate live every single show what I did in the studio 50 years ago! I’m just blown away by what I hear!”
