Vanessa C: Hello Amy,
Thanks so much for having Sharon Isbin on your show. We already had some of her music but didn't know she was coming to town. We went to the concert, which was amazing. We saw you there talking to her after the show, but weren't able to get over to thank you before you left. We got to meet Sharon and have her sign our CD.
Thanks for keeping us informed and have a great week,
