Music To Inspire You
Welcome to Music Moves Me!
To kick off February, Becca, our Spotlight Dancer,
Invites us to share our favorite Duets this week.
What a brilliant choice!
With so many musical riches to choose from,
It was difficult to choose just one song – but here’s my choice!
Patti LaBelle & Michal McDonald – On My Own
This song represents vocal and lyrical perfection in my book!
Enjoy the music and have a wonderful week!
Talent is timeless.

Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
