    Emotion can sometimes make it difficult to express an immense sens of gratitude and affection for people who are dear, for those who have each cast their spell in the making of this album. Though mere words can never do them justice, I would like to specially thank George Duke. I feel honoured and privileged to have worked with you. May This be the first of many. You gave me musical magic, total decotion, respect, and you believed in me. But in addition, we gave each other our friendship, something I cherish. You made recording this album so much "fun fun fun." Harrr we go!

    Don Freeman: You added your special touch and ... oh yeaaah ... another smash!

    Daniel Vail: Only a lyricist such as you could creat an image for me with a stroke of his pen. Only a friend such as you would care enough to do it. You say I'm the witch of love, I say you're the wizard of words.

    Ricky Rock: The time we spend writing together means so much to me. I'd be lost without your constant support and encouragement. You're a special friend and a special talent. Remember, patience and dedication are always rewarded.

    Claire Nadon: Only you could create such a bewitching dress. I know that all the long hours you put into makine me look just right came from the heart. Je t'aime beaucoup.

    My family: You never fail to understand, whether Mom and I are halfway around the world, or just exhausted after a busy day.

    Many thanks to: Ron Weisner, Epic Records, CBS Montreal, The Yamaha World Popular Song Festival in Tokyo, Matthew Rolston and his crew, Tommy Vicari, Mick Guzauski, Mitch Gibson, Erik Zobler, Pat Desirio, and the guys at Studio Du Havre, and last but not least, my fans, for their love and loyalty.

    This album is lovingly dedicated to my mother; My manager, my partner, my friend, my strength, my inspiration, my everything.
