What a trip to see beautiful Sherry Goffin sitting behind her mega-talented mom, Carol King, at the Kennedy Center Honors last night. And a trip down memory lane to the 1980s, when Sherry and I worked at the same jingles company in NYC, where we competed against another unknown songwriter named Alan Menken to see whose jingle would get on the air. Ah, the power of music. Ah, the soaring melodies of fabulous Carol King. And oh, boy, did Aretha knock it out of the park or what? And how about Barack and Michelle grooving to the music? What a glorious glorious night. Thank you, all!
