Happy Monday!  Hope that you had a wonderful weekend!

On Saturday, I had the great and wonderful and amazing opportunity to meet KT Tunstall. She generously donated her time and talent to the Dream Foundation Gala. As one of the Co-chairs of the event, I am especially appreciative! We had the opportunity to have dinner the night before the event and can I just tell you that she is an extraordinary person. Truly amazing: thoughtful, humble, kind, vulnerable and really – really! – funny!

Her first song of the evening was Suddenly I See. You may remember it as the song from the opening credits of The Devil Wears Prada. It has also been included on Grey’s Anatomy. This song literally made me get out of my seat to dance.  I just couldn’t help myself. I found it strange that just a few other people also hopped up to bebop around.

Suddenly – to my utter horror!!! – KT said, “Hollye get up here on this stage and do the catwalk with me!”  When I heard her say this, I almost threw up!  WHAT?  Me dance on stage?!?!?  Well, there saying “No” was simply not an option. The Silver Lining was that a sweet girlfriend joined me.  The other silver lining was that it was a BLAST!  I’ll tell you more about the event, but in the meantime, please allow me to share the lyrics and video of the song.

“Suddenly I See”

Her face is a map of the world
Is a map of the world
You can see she’s a beautiful girl
She’s a beautiful girlAnd everything around her is a silver pool of light
The people who surround her feel the benefit of it
It makes you calm
She holds you captivated in her palmSuddenly I see (suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me?
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me?I feel like walking the world
Like walking the world
You can hear she’s a beautiful girl
She’s a beautiful girlShe fills up every corner like she’s born in black and white
Makes you feel warmer when you’re trying to remember
What you heard
She likes to leave you hanging on her word

Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me?
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me?

And she’s taller than most
And she’s looking at me
I can see her eyes looking from the page of a magazine
She makes me feel like I could be a tower
A big strong tower
The power to be
The power to give
The power to see, yeah, yeah (suddenly I see)
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see, yeah, yeah (suddenly I see)
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see, yeah, yeah, yeah (suddenly I see)
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see, yeah, yeah (suddenly I see)
She got the power to be
The power to give
The power to see, yeah, yeah

Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me?
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me, oh, oh, oh, yeah, yeah? (suddenly I see)
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me? (suddenly I see)
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me?
