My longtime buddy friend John Hall (Democratic challenger) has just been elected at the House of Congress (District 19, New York). Great! Check out John Hall for Congress website to know more about his career and biography and also his victory speech (and song) in video. Paris lover and amazing sailor, John Hall is also a great vocalist, singer/songwriter. He has been involved in environmental issues since the seventies and also in education NY local authorities. Congrats Pamela and Sofi too for having such a gentleman and artist in your life.

"As a recording session artist, he worked with Janis Joplin, Seals & Crofts and Bonnie Raitt, among other artists, before founding Orleans in 1972, with musicians Wells Kelly, Larry Hoppen and Lance Hoppen. In 1977, Hall left Orleans to begin a solo career. He also became active in the anti-nuclear movement, and co-founded Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE). Since then, he has continued working for alternative energy and environmental causes. His musical group at the time, the John Hall Band, released two albums, after which Hall released a number of solo albums, the latest being the infectious and well-received Rock Me on the Water in 2005. During the 80's and 90's, Hall also wrote songs for other artists and reunited with Orleans in 1990, 1996, 2000 and 2003."
