A musician playing skilfully without an audience listening is merely rehearsing.

A public speaker speaking in public to no one in particular would be a rather queer sight.

Famous people have fans, wealthy people are envied, tyrants are feared, and the successful are admired.

But there's a whole new definition of greatness, such that sees grace on the unlikely, glory on the unsung, virtue on the voiceless and fame on the faceless.

They are those that celebrate stars before they begin to shine and applaud the diligent before they know they could perform.

Howbeit, sometimes, it's not the one they cheer on that deserves the spotlight because only the truly great sees and indeed inspires greatness in others.

I prayed and asked God, "Why are the words to really appreciate uncommon people so common and few?

Couldn't there be more words than mere 'Thank You' to appreciate those that are such blessings to me?"

He answered, "Few Words + Much Heart = True Gratitude"

This is to say 'Thank You' for being You.

If I decide to mention everyone that has been a blessing in diverse ways, then this write up might end up being an epistle.

I will nonetheless want to appreciate several people as the names come to mind for all you are, all you do and especially all you did as regards the huge success of the book and album launch held today, 21st September 2011 which also happens to be my birthday. Please note that this list isn’t really exhaustive and might be updated over and again.
