What an amazing opportunity this project was to have been involved with. Patricia Fitzpatrick of 'Cape Cod Cabaret' realized that there was an enormous gap in the music industry. Ever since love song duets CDs have been produced, they have ALL been sung between a man and a woman. She thought the way society was now more accepting of the 'gay' lifestyle.... why wasn't there a CD with men singing about love, (with other men). So she put this idea into practice with myself as one of the principle vocalists. The other principal vocalist was Raif, we were joined by David Atkinson, and Joey Infante (regular 'Broadway' Performer'). On the piano was Glenn Starner-Tate, (an amazing pianist). Together we created something truely unique, and very touching... and filled the gap in the music industry! :-) '
