Stealing quote from one of my new favorite movies, Madagascar 2, It’s time ‘move it, move it!’

Later that morning...
Backstage at the Today show on NBC. Rehearsing, sound checking. Showtime... break a leg. It was a blast to perform on the show. The folks there are incredible to work with and Hoda and Cathy Lee were great.

And we’re off to do more media. First it’s a stop at Reuter’s TV, then OK Magazine, ABC, Better TV-show and last Entertainment Weekly. Great day.
