Yes To Yanni
When I was 12, my older sister went through a phase of loving Yanni. She listened to him endlessly, and I made fun of her endlessly. But now? I'd like to extend my apologies to Susan, because I am totally feeling the Yanni love with this new project Yanni Voices. Yanni Voices is the result of Yanni discovering and developing four of today's most extraordinary voices and pairing his already beautiful compositions with amazing vocalists.
This is the type of music that I can see being perfect for a low-key date with your loved one this Valentine's Day. Music like this makes me think of my most romantic date, the night Shane proposed to me. His proposal was low-key, which was okay with me. I came over to his (now ours) house, where he had a delicious meal prepared, ending with chocolate covered strawberries (all homemade, of course!). After dinner, he handed me a card, I opened it and he had written "Will you...?" When I turned around, he was down on one knee. As a joke, he'd put a gumball machine ring in the box, then laughed when I pretended that the ugliest ring in the world was beautiful. He then pulled the most beautiful ring in the world out of his pocket.
I don't remember what--if any--music we had playing, but I do know that Yanni Voices would be perfect for such an occasion. If you're intrigued (and you should be!), the PBS special will air on March 2. If you like what you see (and if the testimonies of all the girls at BlissDom are true, you will), the disc will be available for purchase on March 24, and the extensive
tour kicks off on April 10th!
Because tomorrow IS Valentine's Day, I want to hear about your perfect date. Was it the day you got engaged? Or was it just a regular date turned special? I love these stories!
