Hi guys. It’s been a little while since my last blog post, but I just downloaded the phone app so hopefully it will make it easier to do this more often As you know from my previous posts I’ve been touring internationally with my new show Lou Gazzara: LIVE From Las Vegas! What I haven’t mentioned is the soon expected arrival of baby Gazzara! Little Presely Cort is still in mama’s belly for now as she resides in the hospital on bed rest. It has been a roller coaster since going through PPROM at 17 weeks (water broke early) but thankfully fluid levels have been sufficient for proper development and both Brittany and Presley are happy and healthy. It can be tough emotionally with all of the touring dates this year, and I pray for the little moments that keep me smiling while away. Well, after another run of great shows this week one of those special moments happened. In the Belize airport of all places I had the amazing opportunity to meet country superstar Faith Hill! My first studio recording ever was at 17 years old of Hill’s “Where are you Christmas?” from the Grinch movie. Meeting this beautiful woman as she saw off her daughters for a mission trip to the south of Belize gave me the opportunity to witness a musical superstar just being a proud mom and woman of God as she shared in that moment with her daughters. It was exactly what I needed to see as questions of travel and fatherhood fill my mind. I know that if the good Lord wants to keep using my voice for the happiness of others then He will make it possible for me to continue performing and traveling all while still being the father he has called me to be.
Happy Memorial Day from Skagway, Alaska. I’m here aboard the Jewel of the Seas with Royal Caribbean Cruises and we are getting ready to put on my one man show Lou Gazzara LIVE From Las Vegas in two nights time. We have many veterans on board and it’s so great to see the ship honoring them and remembering our fallen heroes in many ways throughout the ships decor and activities.
During my show we pay tribute to some of the greatest acts in musical history and try to highlight those contributions they have given to all of us. Two of the artists in particular are Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. Not only are they two of the biggest starts of all time, but they were also very outspoken with their patriotism and love for our country. Elvis even expressed his love for our country so much that he voluntarily joined the military for service after already selling over 25 million albums as an international superstar. So as we sail beautiful Alaska and prepare for my show I try to keep these things in mind, not just today but every time I perform.
We’ve had amazing weather this week near 70 degrees all week. Perfect clear skies to view the amazing landscape. We’ve even seen whales and very fittingly our nations bird the bald eagle. I want to wish everyone a very safe and happy holiday, and if you enjoy our posts please sign up for the Lou Gazzara Fan Club and you can receive updates automatically!
