gentle people all. I am a newcomer to this blog and have come with a very serious request. So please be gentle and kind. On the 14th December 2008 my girlfriend whom I met when I attended the New York Torch for Freedom Benefit concert in new York to see the Queen of Soul perform for our troops there my girlfriend and I enjoyed a scintillating performance by Laura Izibor. Now six years later I've popped the you know what question. And well my girlfriend is saying that in order for her to say yes I have to be able to remember the songs of the performers.
