I’m so excited to come out of quarantine and bring the songs to life! There’s nothing like LIVE performance! This will be the first time you’ll get to see me perform all the songs from Restoration, and I’ll have the classics on deck too! You don’t want to miss the Restoration Album Release Party! Big things to come #ThisIsNotTheEnd!”
