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.

Oh, those amazing Söderberg Sisters! Summer 2012 videos & audio of "First Aid Kit" show Klara and Johanna's amazing talent is only growing -in perfect harmony; Stockholm audio and Paris video proves they're the real deal; #FirstAidKitBand

First Aid Kit (Klara Söderberg & Johanna Söderberg) - "Blues Run The Game" (LIVE). From the studios of Sveriges Radio, Stockholm, Sweden, July 8, 2012.  

First Aid Kit's Klara and Johanna Söderberg went to the Stockholm studios of P1 at Sveriges Radio on Sunday afternoon and over 90 minutes, discussed many things, including their experiences in the U.S., having recorded their newest album, The Lion's Roar, in Omaha and toured extensively to rapturous crowds. They also play D.J. and feature some of the songs they've been influenced by and which they like. The audiotape of them near the beginning as very young kids is quite amusing!

Because it's in Swedish, you might not understand everything you hear, but trust me, the music speaks for itself.

Back on June 22nd the sisters met BBC Radio 6's Lauren Laverne and did a LIVE session and it became a must-listen, with sweet harmonies soon flowing, including Blue and Emmylou.

Last week Johanna and Klara were in Paris and were recorded singing The Lion's Roar while walking around before performing later that night at The Olympia.

My first blog post about the ridiculously-talented Söderberg sisters and their amazing sound was right before Thanksgiving, in a November 19, 2011 post titled, What's that beautiful sound coming from the woods? Sweet harmony! First Aid Kit - "The Lion's Roar"; Wow!

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

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 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. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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