New location. New celebrity.
This is a shout out to Javier Colon from Stratford, Connecticut (neighbor?) and his recent achievement on NBC's the voice. As I become more familiar with the packed population of the Long Island sound, I become more impressed by his singing achievement. He surpassed the crowds and made a name for himself. His crisp, and original voice, singing a Cindy Lauper classic deserves the national attention he is getting. As I drive and learn the populated roads of Southern Connecticut, I realize how much his patience and perseverance has served him.
Applause for Javier on his journey, luck, talent, and dedication. Sometimes a shining moment. An American story (and its independence) for sure!
