To the people who make it a little better for everyone else. To those who sparkle and give you the giggles. To the singers, the dancers, and the artists. To the creators, the writers, the actors, and to the comedians. To the ones that make us feel something, reminding us that there’s beauty and humour in the world. To the ones who can put something in front of you a million times, and somehow make it seem brand new. To the likes of Mozart, Shakespeare, Chaplin, and Garland. To Mercury, Burnett, Disney, each of the Beatles, and Robin Williams. To the ones with talent and the ones you’ll never forget. To the ones whose impression will always be felt. Thank you.
Thank you for the gifts you gave to us; your music, your presence, your laughter, your emotion, your craft and your mind. Thank you for awakening us and show us all true magic. Your art, and performances will live on throughout time, bringing people joy for years to come.
These people, so talented and special, shared their talents with the world and lifted – no – continue to lift up the spirit of all humankind. This rare breed of true talent that doesn’t just happen everyday, and sometimes causes us to wait for generations for another glimmer of light to appear, only to have two show up in a single group. Thank you.
To the old Great Ones and to the new, thank you for making our world a little bit better.
