THANK YOUS AND DEDICATIONS

 

ELIZABETH: I would like to thank my husband Leonel Ibarra for the experience of writing, singing and filming together while creating Bright and Vibrant. Te amo, para siempre. Special gratitude goes out to my papa Gary Mehalick ( the musician who first inspired me to sing) and my brother Benjamin Blanchard for their amazing lead guitar solos. Thank you to my Mom for teaching me how to be a confident performer and to follow my dreams. Thank you to my amazing family and friends for their kind support. Much appreciation is given to all of the wonderful friends and fellow musicians who contributed to the crafting of this very meaningful album. I  dedicate Bright and Vibrant to my darling "Fussy Baby" Alexander Julian Ibarra; may he always be inspired by music.

Leonel: I would like to thank all of the talented musicians who participated in this album, to my friend Ritchie for encouraging me to write songs again, to Luis Elorza whose ideas and contributions to this album made it sound much better than I ever thought it would, to my family, but most of all, to my darling wife Elizabeth and our beautiful son, who joined me in this great adventure, I love you!

Quiero darle las gracias tambien a todos los músicos con los que he tenido la fortuna de interpretar alguna canción, a todos los maestros que me han enseñado algo y a todos los amigos con los que he compartido una carcajada,

Quiero dedicarle este album a mi fan número uno, mi padre, quien ya es uno con el universo.
