Woo Hoo Venice Beach celebrates as our local musical genius, instrument maker moves on to the top 3 of America’s Got Talent!!! Have a listen….
Not long after I moved to Venice I just happened to be in the right place at the right time and I jumped on a boat for a night sail. It was William’s boat, and I kept thinking how kind it was to treat his friends (and me, a stranger) with a magical late night sail, dolphins dancing the wake included. I quickly learned that magic unfolds whenever William is behind the wheel.
About a year ago William opened MOMAI the museum of music and instruments a few blocks from my house. The space became a home for innovative live performances, workshops, fundraisers, screenings, and much more. Venice is overflowing with creativity and William created a home for all of it. I even brushed off my extreme nerves to sing a few nights with my friend Hanna Leess.
Exactly 1 year ago the Earth Harp was built into the temple at Burning Man. William would play at sunset creating a soundtrack for unexplainable beauty. One day hundreds of us did yoga under the earth harp, breathing together as the sound bounced off the ground beneath our feet. He was the talk of the playa.
NOW he’s the talk of the country, getting all the recognition he deserves on America’s Got Talent. It’s the most of all us hippies have watched TV in years. 😉
Please support William (his partner and their brand new baby!) as he continues making magic.
