What message would you give to an aspiring musician/dancer?

Don’t compare yourself to others. Be inspired, but don’t stress. Your career shouldn’t turn out like everyone else’s… Who are these everyone else’s anyways? No one is you! No one has your talent or skill set. Be bold, be brave, be confident, be you!

Life! Get into it.

    I love that you said "Life! Get into it."
    This is especially meaningful to me as this tour has enabled me to engage with life again in an exuberant & happy way.
    I am so appreciative of your and the entire entourage's professionalism, talent, dedication and hard work. It's what has made every concert experience I've had fresh and unforgettable. You all have created and multiplied joy and happiness all over the world for all kinds of people who have forever been united , if only briefly, in this unique experience.
    I will always be grateful to you all. The 20/20Experience has opened up a new path: new thoughts, new visions and new dreams.
    It will be bittersweet to watch it end (I'll be in Vegas!) but I will always be very happy that I was able to be part of this audience multiple times.
    I wish you all success, good fortune and good will as you embark on new projects.
