Thank you so much. Thank you. This is really for you, Mike. You are the guardian angel tonight. Thank you so much. And thank you to my husband, Jim Hart, for writing the best lines in the song. Thank you, sweetheart. And to Twentieth Century Fox and to Clive Davis and everyone at Arista. And to Rob Mounsey, who made the song sound good. And my children, if you found a television set on that island where you are, your mama's really proud.
