    Oh what a night in Houston, October 16th. I was the lucky lady that Michael sang to in the audience. It was a great thrill to be at this performance. Michael is a great singer and has a wonderful personality. The
    night even ended better when I bought a CD and was having it signed by the group and he recognized me
    and stood up and kissed me on the cheek. I wish Michael the best in all he does the rest of his life and
    hopes he is very successful in what he does.
