Miami, February 7 - Day four of our week-long Florida trip and we're now in Miami, also known as the "Magic City." However, we're pretty sure we have experienced some magic already these past few days! It has been a whirlwind week but we have had the privilege of meeting some amazing fans, while visiting with old friends, and enjoying some truly one-of-a kind concert experiences with Maestro Frühbeck and André Watts.
