CARNEGIE HALL with JASON MRAZ. Holy yes.
November 23. Thanksgiving’s Eve. 11-23-11. Forever engrained as one of the most magical days of my life. Jason Mraz invited me to be his special guest at Carnegie Hall. Sold out. Tiers and tiers of beautiful people, dressed to the nines. A beautiful reverence in the air.
I have a lot of dreams in my life. This was a big one come true. Singing with Jason Mraz in a cardboard box would be spectacular, singing with him at Carnegie Hall was top of the tree. Or more like floating in outer space. Best Thanksgiving gift ever. I am soaked in gratitude.

CHIVAS USA TRADES MIDFIELDER PAULO NAGAMURA TO SPORTING KC
Goats will receive the fifth pick in first round of 2012 Supplemental Draft in exchange CARSON, CA. (Tuesday, November 29, 2011) Chivas USA announced today that the club has traded Brazilian midfielder Paulo Nagamura to Sporting Kansas City in exchange for their highest first round 2012 Supplemental Draft pick, which is the fifth pick in the first round of the 2012 Supplemental Draft.
The pick is Chivas USA’s natural pick, which the club originally traded to Sporting KC last week via a previous trade. “We’d like to thank Paulo Nagamura for all the hard work, effort and dedication he has shown in the five seasons that he was a part of the organization [Chivas USA],” commented Chivas USA General Manager, Jose Domene. “We are certain he will do well with his new team [Sporting KC] because he is a true professional and a hard worker who was always committed to the objectives of the club.”
Nagamura, 28, re-signed with Chivas USA in June of 2010 after a six month stint with Tigres UANL of the Mexican First Division. He appeared in 99 matches and is currently fifth in all-time games played for the Goats. Paulo scored nine goals and eight assists over the past five seasons.
In 2011, Nagamura appeared in eleven matches, started six, and had one assist in a total of 544 minutes played. The 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft will be held on January 17 by Major League Soccer via conference call.
It is a secondary draft which features four rounds with all 19 MLS clubs participating.

Vanessa Peters: “The Christmas We Hoped For” [Christmas Legend for the year 2011 and Beyond]
The Christmas period is beginning and the artists release their yearly Christmas albums. Vanessa Peters recorded and released a Christmas album destined to be a classic.
“The Christmas We Hoped For” is becoming a legend and [in my opinion] is superior to other Christmas albums recorded this year. I Invited Vanessa Peters and she accepted to be interviewed concerning “The Christmas We Hoped For”. The rest is history.
1. What was the inspiration behind recording “The Christmas We Hoped For”?
We just wanted to do an fun, low-stress project. I’ve always wanted to do an album of cover songs, and somehow, in the middle of summer, we got the crazy idea to do Christmas songs.
2. What inspired you to choose the songs for “The Christmas We Hoped For”?
I chose my favorite Christmas songs, but I also wanted a good balance of traditional hymns and more secular, classic songs. I could have easily filled another EP with hymns, but I wanted the album to have a more universal and balanced feel to it.
3. Will you be recording videos for these timeless songs in your album?
I don’t know. I guess it depends on whether we have time! We’re working on my new record of originals right now, so I am not sure we’ll get around to doing a video. But if we get some good wintry weather, maybe I’ll put on my snow boots and make a video or two.
4. How long did it take you to record “The Christmas We Hoped For”?
We worked on it throughout the summer… maybe about two months total? We would work on an arrangement, record that song, and then move on to the next one. The album took shape as we went along – we didn’t start out with a specific number of songs that we wanted to have. At first I thought we’d only do an EP. But it was so much fun that we just kept going.
5. Where can people buy “The Christmas We Hoped For”?
Just about anywhere that music is sold online! You can find it at CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, and BandCamp.
6. Will you do any concerts to promote your Christmas album?
I’m doing the CD release party in Dallas on Dec 10th. Other than that, I’m laying pretty low this Christmas.
7. Who did the artistry in the album?
We did the artwork – we built a diorama at home and photographed it. My friend Haley Adam did the layout.
8. Do you have any Christmas messages to share with the world?
I just hope that everyone finds the joy in this time of year. I know that for many people, the holidays can be so hectic and stressful, but I hope that everyone finds a way to feel peace and love within themselves and just enjoy the company of their friends and family and loved ones.
Vanessa, I would like to thank you for the time spent with us and for “The Christmas We Hoped For”. I like the album very much especially your interpretation of “All I Want For Christmas Is You” which for me is one of the true meaning of Christmas.
