Here's her reply, I'm sooo emboldened by this..
Thanks so much for the invitation but I [am] way beyond your generation and prefer quiet nights at home. I was thinking of my nieces who are visiting NYC when I asked you about new venues but their vacation ends this weekend. I'll probably see you again someday in the subway system or who knows, maybe at Radio City...
May God continue to bless you with many moments of happiness and peace and a wonderful mind to create genuine heart-felt music. You are an inspiration for a generation confused by consumerism and self-centerness.
I'll continue to check your sites for your new music. Thank you again for your music, it was a ray of light in the darkness of NYC underbelly.
