Time’s Up!
The winner is #19 – Six in the Northwest! Congrats and thanks for entering, everyone!

Several weeks back, Arianne, from the One2One Network asked me if I’d like to review a cd/dvd of Yanni’s newest project, “Voices” – and I jumped on the chance to review and co-sponsor a giveaway on the little old blawg. Then life got in the way and well…it’s just getting posted…but with no less love, I assure you.

Yanni, in collaboration with legendary producer Ric Wake, has discovered and developed four of the most extraordinary young voices in music today. Two years in the making, Yanni returns to the global stage with a dazzling new tour. For the first time ever, Yanni re-interprets his classic compositions and debuts new music introducing show-stopping vocalists Nathan Pacheco, Chloe, Ender Thomas and Leslie Mills.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially after checking out their site, Yanni.com – it looked like a bunch of really pretty people, but I was worried…”could they sing?”

But, I’ve never been one to turn down free music, and as Sarah Palin would say, “Lemme tell ya” – this did not disappoint! This isn’t your typical easy-listening music – these are true artists and it is obvious that Yanni is working to showcase and cultivate their talents. I think my favorite singer is Nathan Pacheco…but I don’t know whether it’s because he’s so stinkin’ cute or whether it’s his beautiful, melodic voice…this guy has got style, rhythm and an incredible voice. Phew.

If you’d like to catch them on tour, click to see their schedule. And if you’re like me and can’t afford the tickets, you can do what I’ll be doing and check out PBS’s station listing here to see when the show will be airing in your area. (hint: it starts in March!!! So you haven’t missed them!)

Just ask, Beth from I Should Be Folding Laundry – she had the guys singing Happy Birthday to her at the Blissdom conference. Some people have all the luck.

But today might just be your lucky day, because the gracious gals over at One2One Network have ever so graciously agreed to give away one simply a musing blog reader the following:

1. a box of Godiva chocolate truffles (I can vouch – they’re really good!)

2. a brand new “Voices” CD/DVD for your very own. (sorry…not giving away the boys…sigh)
