PLAYLIST FOR “DUETS WEEK” (4.21.18)

22 Apr

There’s strength in numbers, right? So this must have been one of my strongest shows ever because ever song sung was sung by two singers. Plus the instrumentals were duets, too. I even invited a co-host to join me behind the mic – Alexa, the artificial intelligence assistant. That didn’t go exactly as I thought it would.
