Hedy Patrucci

Ladies and Gents, this lady can sing. Her performance is something you don’t want to miss. I had to wait.. time zones.. it was worth the wait. I joined her group so that I would know when she is due to sing.. Her song list is extensive, from Adele, Diana Krall, Eartha Kitt, Leann Rimes to my favourites Norah Jones even Rita Coo. These are just samplings. I saw her a the Ville de Coeur -Harbor Square. If you join her group, you will be notified when and where she will be next.

I heard about her months ago, it really was a challenge to find a time to hear her .. her partner Lord had sent me a link to a couple of her recordings. From Europe, she appears in clubs not familiar to us here in North America.. Honestly.. find the time.. you’ll be glad you did.

Lessons we learn along the way are many, yesterday, I enjoyed sharing time with friends in the virtual world of Second Life. It was a reminder of how being with friends and sharing pastimes, and interest, listening to good music and just “chilling” can make for an awesome visit.

My good friend and “sister” in SL is Yume Yoshikawa, she is a FT DJ in SL and has been for absolutely years. We go back to 2007. Where I have been mostly a builder, doing builds, designs and selling my line of clothes, she was and is always working her talents as a music buff who shares her gift…

Yume is back. The party was in full swing. Saw her last night at Tango’s for a Jungle Party. It had been awhile since I had been to one of Yume’s sets.. What a time! I had forgotten what high energy she has. She had us all dancing. No one sits when Yume takes to the stage. You might have missed last night, nut guess what.. she is back on Friday nights for Latin Sizzle. 7 pm SL . the best way to never miss one of her sets is to join her group.
