My friend Mari Falcone's Garden Ballet is premiering in Florence, Italy today! Mari and her husband Bill Cantos are incredibly gifted musicians whose sole purpose is to glorify God in their art. I had the privilege of singing with Bill & Mari for more than a year, and they are the real deal... wonderful, dear people. If you get a chance to hear either one of them perform, don't miss it! Bill's "New Red Coat" will knock your socks off.
Mari is ridiculously talented, freakishly so. She is a pianist, keyboardist, musical director, composer, and musical arranger. She's toured with the likes of Donna Summer, Amy Grant, Kim Hill, and Deniece Williams. She has written and produced for Debby Boone and other gospel artists. She's appeared on the Grammy Awards twice. Mari has composed for television and film, and served as musical director for Off-Broadway, touring musicals, and many L.A. theatrical productions, including serving as musical director for the Groundlings improv group. Yeah, she rocks.
Mari, I'm so excited for you! Have a GREAT time tonight! I'm doing the "Go Ma-ri, Go Ma-ri" dance for you!
