To find your smile again, even for a moment, I’d give half my life. Yet I know that’s not the way it works in the carousel of life. It works like you taught me: I need to be your smile myself and give back the love you have given me. So, I think of you, Dad, and I smile. I do it for you, while you are waiting above to come back and hug me, and to smile together.
My mother has always been by my side. She has supported and encouraged my artistic ambitions, even when few people believed I had a chance to break through as an artist; I was just a young man from the countryside, with no connections in the entertainment industry.
I feel like my parents have “shaped” me morally and ethically. They raised me in a united family, and gave me values that have guided me throughout my life.
