While I've been holed up in my studio working this week I have been belting out a new album. What do you think this rock-loving, folksy following, closet-pop gal has been rocking out to?
So, here are two Tony trivia facts for you from the life of Lori Wade:
Our wedding song was "The Way You Look Tonight," and we chose the version by the grand Mr. Bennett. (Everyone together..."Awe!") Bart wasn't so sure, but I convinced him of the timeless feel of the song. It was perfect.
Our youngest boy, Ben, is not a Benjamin. That's right, he's a Bennett.
How's that for dedication?
No, really we just loved the name Ben. But, the name Benjamin? Not so much. (No offense to anyone out there who has a Benjamin or is named Benjamin himself. It's a great name!) You see, very early on the name Benjamin was ruined for both of us. Why might you ask? Well, it turns out that we are both SUPER NUTBALLS about the movie Wayne's World.
Anyway, remember the villain in this movie? The sleazeball who tried to steal away the beautiful Cassandra?
Side note: Ben's middle name is my Father's middle name, Marcus. It means war-like; a fighter. So Ben's name means a blessed little fighter. And my, how he has lived up to his name.
