So tonight I went to the Grammys for the first time, because I did some work on a nominated album. We didn't win, but despite that I'm so glad we could go. It was amazing and inspiring to see artist of different backgrounds, religions, orientations, countries - all kinds of things that so often divide people - working together not just to make great music but also to be a positive influence in the world.

I'm greatful to Diana Pops, who is to this day one of the most talented artists I've ever worked with, to Chris Mann, who heard our music and brought it to his producer's attention and who has now become a great friend, and finally to Walter Afanasieff, also now a great friend, who, thanks to Chris' introduction, invited me to collaborate with him here in Los Angeles and who has completely changed my life.

I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store!
