Dana lives in Seattle, and Tracie lives in Germany. We are businesswomen, writers and humorists. We write about life, dating, and today's modern women.
On Saturday, June 29th, my sister and co-blogger, Tracie and my sister by choice, Patti Savoy and I arrived on a platform as the guest of our uncle, Quincy Jones at the 52nd Annual Montreux Jazz Festival to watch Elton John. We summoned the sold out crowd. The energy was palpable as we took notice of a petite, attractive woman with a big red hat and large sunglasses, and an energy that drew everyone to her. Tracie leaned in, “That’s Shania Twain.”
Full disclosure, I have been a life-long fan of Shania Twain. Like me, she is a Menopausebarbee, Virgo, mother, divorcee, who sings songs that empower all that encompasses this journey we are on. It should come as no surprise that,
“She has sold over 100 million records, making her the best-selling female artist in country music history and among the best-selling music artists of all time. Her success garnered her several honorific titles including the “Queen of Country Pop“.
Despite her tremendous God given talent, what truly was the most gratifying exchange was how genuinely kind, authentic, and loving she is. Later that evening at the Montreux Jazz Café, Shania embraced us over French fries, sliders, and vodka, and we reveled in stories of laugh, love and resilience. Her strength is empowering as she has known heartbreak, but found the faith to find love and more importantly give love.
All I can say is, Man! As the evening concluded, I felt like a WOMAN.
Shania will be performing in Las Vegas starting in December. You better believe I will get tickets – she’s still the one!
