Google Analytics (multiple: _ga, _gat_gtag_UA_, _gid) Google This is a web analytics service provided by Google, which uses cookies to show us how visitors found and explored our website, and how we can enhance their experience.

CloudFlare (_cfuid) CloudFlare This is for security and set by the proxy firewall that we use called Cloudflare. It identifies individual visitors behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. For example, if a visitor is in a coffee shop where there may be several infected machines, but the specific visitor’s machine is trusted (for example, because they completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows Cloudflare to identify that client and not challenge them again. It does not correspond to any user ID in your web application, and does not store any personally identifiable information.

Happiness is ...

And the journey has begun ... an experience I will never, ever forget. @nezetseguin , thank you for your heart, your soul, your mastery, your self .... and thank you @hjseries for helping us launch this in such a special, memorable way. #KC, I love you deeply!

Who’s ready to play?!?!?! TODAY we release the first track of my new album: SONGPLAY - celebrating life, a great song, and above all, LOVE! On my last album I sang about the idea of peace, inviting you to nurture it within. If you’ve managed to stay there, the next step should surely be joy, no? I’d recommend throwing your friends a fabulous, old-fashioned dinner party (perhaps Italian cuisine is in order?), press play, and revel in the joy of meeting some old standards in a new light. Once you hear this band, trust me, you’re going to want to sing along! As you join in, however, just keep in mind what the great Louis Armstrong said: “You got to love to be able to play.” • • 🎧 link in bio • Photo: @chrissingerme Art direction: @catecool Album design: @lennysstudio Styling: @vitatzykun Jewelry: @tamsenznyc Makeup: @glowbyaffan • #Songplay @warner_classics #newMusicFriday #warnerclassics
