Visiting Kelly in AZ

kelly-and-me  Gail and I will be visiting Kelly in AZ next week, and I’ll be attending a medical conference, too, which helps pay for the trip!  (A nice perk of my job!) It’s always great to see Kelly because, living in AZ, our visits are few and far between. I miss my baby girl! Not really a baby, though. She is a beautiful, intelligent, creative, 24 year old young woman. I am very proud!

I’m going to miss one of my favorite singers by just a few days. Michelle Branch is doing a gig in Tempe, where Kelly lives, four days before we get there. Bummer! But I just bought tickets so Kelly and her boyfriend could go. Maybe she’ll take some pix. — Let’s see if I can figure out how to add some YouTube video…

Okay, this is a video of a young, teenage Michelle Branch before making “Everywhere” her first pop hit on the “Spirit Room” CD in 2001. Writing, singing, solo performing, is not easy. She’s the real deal.

Very nice!

Now here’s the piece that probably did the most to make her famous. Carlos Santana recognized her talent and showcased “The Game of Love” on his “Shaman” CD.


Finally, a mature performer, with her own unique styling, and an artistically produced video of “Are You Happy Now” from her second CD, “Hotel Paper.”


She’s an AZ native, but now lives in Nashville. Her latest stuff is a bit countrified, but not much. I hope for more from “The Wreckers.”

Okay, that’s all I have to say about Michelle Branch, and it was a good excuse for me to learn how to embed YouTube video on my new WP blog.  How’d I do?

  1. I am a big Michelle Branch fan! What a voice. Thanks to my kids, I'm up with all the current tunes. Can't say I like it all, but Everything and Are You Happy Now? are 2 of my favs! I haven't heard her countrified stuff, though.

    I hope you both have a super wonderful time in AZ! How can you not while visiting your baby?

  2. It will be nice to see Kelly!

    I hope she got to see Michelle Branch today. If she did and took pix, I'll blog them.
