Went down to the Second City studio on April 11, 2011. It was the TV debut for “The Dream”. It all seems so ironic. A couple years ago I was flipping through the channels, and stumbled upon a show called “Toronto’s Talent”. I have since seized every opportunity I get to watch Quinn C. Martin and the diverse talents or those who think they have talent on stage.
In March I called the show and was playing phone tag with Jessie, the show’s organizer. Weeks later my email inbox had an email from the show, the subject “You’re Booked”. I had a couple weeks to prepare for the my first TV appearance to promote “The Dream”.
No problem!! The major problem I have is trying to condense the verses flowing in my head into 5 or 10 minutes. In the end “Contrast”, “Another Five Minutes” and the title piece “Dream In Colour” were eventually chosen. So sorry to all the “Hot Chocolate” fans, you can peep that in the Dream Launch Video on the home page.
Shortly after walking into the studio, I was called. They had to find a track for the performer that was scheduled and so I got to slip in. Was I prepared? Indeed just like I was born to be. The delivery was fluent without a hitch.
April 11. 2011 will go down as the day I met “My favourite man on TV”. That’s Quinn C. Martin the host. I am not sure yet when the show will air. I will let everyone know the moment I find out.
While you wait, I will polish up “The Dream” and get ready to take it to the world.
