Hello,

Well Pittsburgh is still buzzing with the Stanley Cup shining in our town again… you gotta love the Penguins.

I can remember numerous times Sydney Crosby would come in to eat at Bravo, and I felt so bad because his lips were always so chapped.  But I assume that is the price to pay for quality time on the ice.

For those of you who do not know, I am a hostess at Bravo Cucina.  I applied for the job back in October of 1999 thinking I would earn some extra money for Christmas.  Well, 18 years later, I am still working there.  Have to admit, I love it.  Located close to the Pittsburgh Airport, you would be amazed at the many athletes and celebrities that pop in.

I went to the Daryl Hall & John Oates a few weeks ago.  These are two great old-time performers.  And yes, I broke out into tears when they performed “Sara Smile.”  I would always sing that to Sara as a baby. And I love the fact Sara has no ‘h’ in the spelling… just like my baby girl’s.

So let’s chat about Stevie Wonder for a moment.  Such a great and talented performer.  A TRUE LEGEND in the music industry.  No matter your age, there has to be a Stevie song you like.  One of my favorites is “Higher Ground.”  Okay, so I am not trying to be a Debby Downer, but the world is suffering with terrorism and senseless crimes.  SO SO SAD.  Take a listen to “Higher Ground.”  The lyrics resonate with your heart, and the great sounds make you want to dance.  It is an immediate spirit booster.

I think we all need to reach our higher ground!

Check out the Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran & Gary Clark Jr. Tribute for Stevie Wonder at the 2015 Grammy Awards (check out Tony Bennett jamming in the audience)

“Higher Ground” – Stevie Wonder

People keep on learnin’
Soldiers keep on warrin’
World keep on turnin’
‘Cause it won’t be too long

Powers keep on lyin’
While your people keep on dyin’
World keep on turnin’
‘Cause it won’t be too long

I’m so glad that he let me try it again
‘Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I’m so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin’
Till I reach my highest ground

Lovers keep on lovin’
Believers keep on believin’
Sleepers just stop sleepin’
‘Cause it won’t be too long
I’m so glad that he let me try it again
‘Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I’m so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin’
Till I reach my highest ground

Till I reach my highest ground
No one’s gonna bring me down

Till I reach my highest ground

Don’t let nobody bring you down (they’ll sho ‘nough try)
God is gonna show you higher ground

Until we chat again,

DEB
