Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Still just as charming, talented and awesome as ever: Sara Evans and her Donna Summer Tribute from May...

There's so much I could say and write here about Sara Evans.
About how this short video is like a small snapshot of her wonderful personality and amazing talent. A video I've been planning on posting for weeks.

And the thing is, having just loved her to death for years, when I was still living and working in the Washington, D,.C. area and finally had the opportunity to see her perform in-person -and wound-up with some really great seats, too- despite everything I'd read and thought I  already knew about her, oddly enough, the thing I was most unprepared for is that she's even more drop-dead beautiful in person -heartbreakingly so in fact.

So when she comes bounding out onstage beaming that infectious mega-watt smile of hers that brings the crowd to its feet, then stops smiling and starts singing with that amazing unaffected voice, she literally has the ability to make you (or at least me) feel physically dizzy.
It's just so VERY MUCH to take in...

It's just like what I'd seen before for myself when I was around actress Sela Ward.
People are just literally overwhelmed by her in the flesh.

Sometimes, it's hard to believe that it's been so many years since... she first rocked my world.

My record for playing that CD over-and-over without stopping -while driving- is 5x's.

Because I knew in advance that I'd be at the important HB City Commission meeting on the Boardwalk proposal last Wednesday, and knew they'd be appearing and performing at the same time, the last thing I did before I left the house was set up the DVD recorder to tape the 2012 CMT Music Awards.
So it wasn't until early Thursday morning that I saw both Jana Kramer -#8 on the iTunes album chart last week- and Sara perform.

Sara's most recent hits...

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's yet another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
