During my experience as a musician, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with many different artists and bands, all of us making beautiful music together. Some of these artists have gone off and done extraordinary things with their musical career, and some have stayed more low-key, keeping a local fan base.
 
One outstanding artist that I had an opportunity of working with was Geoff McBride. If any of you are fans of ‘The Voice’ then this name should ring a bell. After his captivating cover of ‘Higher Ground’ by Stevie Wonder, he won over the judge’s approval, but unfortunately after falling short with ‘Chain of Fools’ by Aretha Franklin, he was eliminated from the show.
 
Geoff and I spent many hours together in the studio recording, night after night, day after day until we were able to complete our masterpiece. Together, we created a cover of ‘Always and Forever’, Geoff’s soulful voice radiating throughout the entire track. It was such a high honor to work with a talented musician, helping me produce my CD “After Hours.”

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
