Sting!  I’ve loved Sting for decades!  The music legend has a new album out entitled “The Last Ship,” and to promote it, he celebrated its release with a series of 10 shows in New York at The Public Theatre.  The intimate shows were expensive but worth it to be up close and personal to see Sting perform the new record.  After the show, I was fortunate enough to meet Sting and he was very nice!  He signed a couple of his iconic albums for me and also took a photo with me.  WOW!  Thanks so much Sting.  You’re an inspiration.

Happy 60th Birthday, Sting

Sting is the text book case study for treating your body and mind right!  The birthday boy (when he is clean shaven) looks easily 20 years younger than he is and still has a great body!  What’s your favorite song from The Police or Sting’s solo career?  I have a bunch, but off the top of my head I’ll say “Synchronicity 2” and “Love is the Seventh Wave.”

Also born today:  singer Tiffany, do-it-all Kelly Ripa, photographer Annie Leibovitz, fashion designer Donna Karan, comedians Bud Abbott and Groucho Marx and India leader Mahatma Gandhi.

TheQueen of Cool and my dear friend April attended the hottest ticket in town tonight and she wanted to share a few photos of what looks like an amazing night.  Before we go on, let’s all bow down to her.

You may rise.

On May 13, 2010 at Carnegie Hall in New York, some of the biggest singers in the world got together to help save the rainforests!  The A-List included Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Sting, Dame Shirley Bassey and Mary J. Blige.  Color us all jealous.

There’ll be lots more photos coming soon when you visit April’s site.

On behalf of all of us, THANKS!!!
